Working on AltBalaji's MoM was a 'goosebump galore' for me: Palomi Ghosh

She might seem like a new actress to many, but Palomi Ghosh's work so far has proved that she has a bold and unique way of choosing projects. The actress who was earlier seen in the critically acclaimed film, Mukti Bhavan, is now a part of AltBalaji's Mission over Mars (MoM).

In an exclusive interaction with, she shares a lot about the show, thought process, interests and more.

Starting the conversation by sharing her way of dealing with pressure, while performing for a big banner, with eminent names and a subject which became a global phenomenon, Palomi said,

"I was in awe when I was offered this role and that was my first reaction. This role came with responsibility and the pressure was to get it right. Our director was very helpful as he knew what he wanted. But for us, it was about following what was said and also our own instincts."

Such subjects often teach viewers and actors a lot more than already known. As a part of the aim, the makers ensure that there is a lot of information shared on-screen. Talking about what she learned from her character and MoM, Palomi said,

While the show celebrates the women force behind it, it also sets an example of men who empowered these women in positions of power, to work together in unity. It is not the gender, but about we strive for. It reflects the society we are striving for, and ISRO is just that - out of the world."

Since the show is packed with emotions relating to the real-life incident, it is bound to connect with the audience. Sharing a thought on what she went through during the shoot, she answered, "We had emotional moments, every time we talk about the moments. We watched the documentary and we had goosebumps. The project, I call it, was a 'goosebump galore.'" 

Over the last few years, Palomi's project choices have been unusual and something actors wish to have in their filmography. Adding her thought on what pushes her to choose the non- conventional films in today's time, Palomi mentioned,

"The subtle projects I've chosen have picked on my subtleties and drawn me into it. I wouldn't have it in another way like the Konkani film I did, gave me the eyeballs and reach which I did not imagine. That's a beautiful aspect on its own. Now at the cusp of the content and shows, I'm doing, I'm excited with the prospect of reaching out to a larger audience. But this also comes with the authentic content we are creating today, especially with MoM, close to reality."

With unconventional choices, actors often tend to get distracted with the need to do a commercial film. Telling us about what keeps her motivated to choose such roles and stay positive, she said,

"For me, I'm always happy when someone relates me to the work I've done in the past, be it Mukti Bhavan or Typewriter, and understand my versatility. It is such a big compliment. If I'm able to take up projects where you can't identify me with my characters, then it is a win for me. That's what keeps me going. I'm waiting for good authentic stories from people who really care about what they are making."
