Experiment, experiment, experiment
Stereotyped, often derided as an actress who mainly plays only unsteady, troubled women on screen - Gangster, Woh Lamhe, Life in a...Metro, Fashion - the 22-year-old is confident that 2010 will silence her detractors. The actor points out, "People have seen just five per cent of me so far. The remaining 95 per cent is yet to come. Thanks to Fashion, I got appreciation, awards and a lot of offers. That's how I have been able to sign a wide variety of good characters. No Problem and Knock Out are comedies.
Once upon a Time in Mumbai has me in the role of a '60s superstar. I play a journalist in Actor co-starring Amitabh Bachchan and Lara Dutta, and a girl next door in the romantic comedy Tanu Weds Manu. My friends tell me that because the characters I've played so far have been so strong, somewhere people relate me with them. It's like if someone does comedy well, people think, 'Oh my God, this is a really funny person.'
But it's been just three years. I am going to experiment more."
