Akansha Ranjan Kapoor, who not too long ago marked her appearing debut with the digital movie Guilty, says that appearing has at all times been the massive dream. Despite being pals with the younger brigade of actors and coming from a movie household, she says that she needed to audition for her half within the movie.
“I auditioned for the film without knowing much about the project other than the fact that it was a digital film. Once I got shortlisted, they asked me to come for a meeting and then told me that I was locked. I had to wait for only 13 days as against any other film where you need to wait for a month or so,” elaborates Ranjan who reveals that her first audition was for Lekar Hum Deewana Dil (2014).
The younger actor says that she’s completely satisfied to be a part of the trade presently. “It’s such a great time to be an actor. Nobody cares about how pretty you are or the kind of body type that you have. What matters is if you are a good actor. The Dangal (2016) girls (Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra) are doing so well. If you are good performer, you’ll be respected for your work and you’ll eventually get more work,” she says.
Going forward, Kapoor shares that she would need to strike a steadiness between industrial Hindi movies and those that ship out vital social messages. “It’s always better if you can bring about a change in the society. Actors and cinema have a way of influencing the society. That being said, I won’t deny the fact that I want to do a mainstream film and there are no two ways about it,” she says, “But thankfully, the lines between commercial and content-driven films are blurring now. Thappad is a shining example of that! I’m desperate to work with Zoya (Akhtar), Sanjay Leela Bhansali film and Anubhav Sinha.”
