'I am less scared of failure now'

She is ready to experiment and push herself into enacting any kind of role but if one had met her six years ago, Minissha Lamba would have laughed at anyone who would have offered her a heroine’s role.

In the City shooting for her first South Indian film, Kontract, Minissha tells Metrolife that there is not a day she regrets taking up acting as a career.

“I believe every actor has many personalities hidden inside them and with every film, one gets to bring out one part of the personality to screen. That’s why I love this career as it never gets boring,” says Minissha.

Minissha, who will be playing the role of a married woman in the love triangle, says that the Southern film industry had always interested her.

“I was constantly getting offers but I was waiting for an interesting debut and I found that with Kontract. Moreover, I get to share screen space with actors like Arjun Sarja and J D Chaturvedi. What more could I ask for,” she says.

After an ultra sexy image in Kidnap, one will see Minissha in a rather traditional look in this film.  “It’s when one pushes one’s body to the limits that one gets to discover many sides that one didn’t know. But now I have realised that my USP is the cute, bubbly girl next door image and from now on that’s where I will be working towards,” she says while adding, “Moreover I have always loved traditional clothes and there is nothing more beautiful than a sari.”

Soon, Minissha will be trying her hand at comedy with Hum Tum Aur Shabana, which stars Tusshar Kapoor and Shreyas Talpade and is the sequel to Bheja Fry. “Comedy is the toughest thing to do. It was a huge challenge for me and I am glad in both the films, the onus of the comedy is on the men,” she says.

Having been part of the film industry for more than five years, Minissha says that she has seen herself change only for the better. “If there is one thing that I have learnt from the industry, then it is to be less scared of failure. I used to be terrified when a film didn’t work and thought that it was the end. But over the years I have realised that life moves on and one has to accept failure and success with a pinch of salt,” Minissha signs off.
