Actress Shriya Pilgaonkar says she would probably spend her time learning a musical instrument if she was kept under house arrest in real life.

The actress, who features in Netflix's new release "House Arrest", revealed as much when asked what she would love to do if she was forced to stay indoors for a stretch of time.

"It depends what kind of house arrest I've put myself in. I really can't imagine what that must be like but I guess I'll catch up on reading, binge-watching movies and shows.

Maybe I will learn an instrument, because that requires dedication and time. I'm hoping people can still come see me even though I can't step out of my house because of the house arrest," she said.

The actress plays a journalist named Saira in "House Arrest", a comedy that revolves around a man named Karan (Ali Fazal) who refuses to step out of his house for months.

Speaking about her character, Shriya said: "Saira is curious by nature and wants to meet Karan when she finds out that he hasn't left his home for six months.

While Karan and Saira are very different, they also doscover many similarities through the course of the day. I enjoyed playing Saira."

Shriya also revealed how she prepared for the role: "We discover Saira as a person as she slowly drops guard.

We did a lot of workshops to develop the character, we see shades of the strong and the vulnerable at the same time. (Directors) Samit (Basu) and Shashank (Ghosh) encouraged Ali and me to improvise on set."

On the work front, Shriya will next be seen in 'Haathi Mere Saathi' a trilingual film, where she features alongside Rana Daggubati.

The movie marks her debut in Tamil and Telugu films. She is also a part of Anubhav Sinha's political satire, 'Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai.'
