In a recent media interaction, Tillotama Shome who plays the character of Lipika in the recently released streaming show, The Night Manager, has said that in real life, she is a very calm person who could do away with the adrenaline rush unlike her character, though she has a few things in common with Lipika.
Talking about the same, the actress said: "I am definitely less messy than Lipika. I will not put myself in a dangerous situation. I am quite okay to live without the adrenaline rush of the brave and the strong."
However, there are two things that she shares with her character as she further mentioned, "I would like to think that I share Lipika's sense of responsibility and middle class reality."
