In January, McDermott had adjudged ‘Merry Men 2’ to be her most challenging project since she took to acting 16 years ago.

“It’s the most challenging in my career because I had to be physical and be as fit as I can. Merry Men 2 took me to a place that no other film has taken me to and I am grateful for that,” she had said.

“The movie took me out of my usual happy, laughing to the character to a bit more serious one where I had to frown my face all the time and all that.

“At the premiere of merry 2, I had already had two offers on action films. I think working on this project made me understand the importance of having the right crew members.”
