Speaking about the short film “Thanks Mom” and made her say yes to the project, and how did it resonate with her as an actor Akanksha shared, “Palash Dutta who is a producer and dear friend to me, he got me on board. When he narrated me this beautiful story and my character Aarushi I immediately said yes. Thanks mom is about relationships and complexity of relationships . I am playing “ Aarushi” a sweet independent girl next door , who is everybody’s favourite . It was a character very easy for me to play as Aarushi is exactly like Akanksha, so I just portrayed myself, it came naturally to me”.

“I know Sharad very well, he is a friend but we never shared screen space before “ Thanks Mom” . I was very comfortable to work with him and we you have a experience actor with you things become very easy and we kept pulling each other leg and that only happens when friends work together”.
