She has been photoshopping selfies of herself into iconic photos of her dead idols for a project titled, “The Wish Fulfillment Series”. Here she is in a shot with Madhubala.

"So I thought of who I would like to be seen in selfies with. The idea and fun of making impossible selfies then resulted in this project," she added. Like this one with Satyajit Ray.


"It came down to images that I could recreate with my limited resources— few clothes, one lipstick and two eye liners and Photoshop," said Rao.
