The actress went dormant for a span of two years after her debut movie. Sanah explaining her absence from the industry and said, "I got that film just after finishing my graduation. So it was too early for me to decide anything. I finished my MA degree. And I always wanted to do theatre. I love stage as much I love the camera. Now that my new film is releasing and another is in pipeline, I am back on the set. As an actress, both the mediums fascinate me."
