"The first experience is often a special experience. I had only heard that IFFI was fun, but now experienced it too. It can be very taxing but to be able to stand out and be here and be excited is what matters," she said

When asked if she would want to shoot a film in Goa, Gautam said "Who does not love Goa? I would love to shoot here if the script is good."

Goa proved to be very good for filmmakers during the pandemic as it allowed film shoots with precautions.

Gautam loves Goa and wishes to explore the other side of the State. She said said that there are people who want to explore beaches and other aspects, but she wanted to explore the streets and the churches of the State.

In her Goa itinerary, Old Goa is one of the top places she wants to visit just to see the churches. "I also love Goan food. I love seafood but not on Thursdays and Tuesday, rest of the days it is all okay for me," Gautam said.

Showering unequivocal praises on Goa, Gautam said, "Goa finds a place in everyone's heart."
