The actress said, "As we celebrate International Women's Day, I want to express my gratitude to the universe for allowing me to acknowledge and honor the diversity of women from all walks of life through the wonderful characters I have had the opportunity to portray.

"Womanhood cannot be constrained by the barriers of what a woman does to earn a livelihood. As an actor, I enjoy  exploring the diverse narratives of women, transcending stereotypes and showcase the innate strength, resilience and beauty through each portrayal."

She added, "Today I am richer in understanding people through my characters and also myself as a person.

"There is so much I have learnt in the process of playing these women from different walks of life and I have a lot of respect for each individual who is able to strive through their circumstances and accept themselves in all their glory."

From portraying the life of a sex worker to stepping into the shoes of a lawyer, Shriya's strong roles on screen mirror the richness and complexity of women's experiences from all walks of life.

In Taaza Khabar, Shriya brought nuance and sensitivity to the role of Madhu, a sex worker by shedding light on the struggles and resilience of women in marginalised professions whereas in her remarkable portrayal of a lawyer (Kashaf) in Guilty Minds she signifies empowerment and intellect.

In Dry Day, Shriya played Nirmala, a home-maker embodying a culturally rooted woman who is determined who stand up for her family  whereas in Broken News, her portrayal of Radha as a news reporter and as Divya , a double agent in Crackdown, Shriya exudes intelligence , confidence, and a balance of vulnerability and strength.
