“Acting and direction both have difficulties. There are things about acting and direction which are enjoyable and interesting as well. I think both are challenging for me. I can’t compare,” Konkana said at the 18th Mami Film Festival. Konkana, who has starred in films like Wake up Sid, Ek Thi Daayan and Talvar, says she it is very liberating being behind the camera.
