'It is easier to do Hindi films'

Well known for her South Indian films, Vishakha Singh is now all set for her upcoming Bollywood release, Bajatey Raho, which is all set to hit screens on July 26.

After the success of Fukrey, the actress is excited about her forthcoming flick.

Directed by Shashanth Shah, the movie is a revenge comedy.

When asked about the character she essays, Vishakha says, “I play this character called Manpreet, who is a very brash and loud Sardarni girl. It’s not the typical girl-next-door character and is something very different. In Fukrey, I played a very serious character but in this movie, I have a very funny and happy role.”

About her co-star Tusshar Kapoor, she says, “Tusshar is a very down-to-earth person. he doesn’t throw any attitude. Having said that, I must also say that he is a huge prankster and I have often been a victim to his pranks on the sets.”

The actress has received much praise after the huge success of her Tamil flick Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaya.

 “There are a few differences between Bollywood and movies down South. Since I’m basically a Mumbai girl, it is easier to do Hindi films,” she adds.

When asked about the kind of roles she would like to perform in future, she says, “I would like to play something similar to the role of Priyanka in Barfi! or Rani Mukerji’s in ‘Black’. I also liked the character of Priyamani in Paruthiveeran. In Hollywood, I’d like to do the ‘Kill Bill’ series. Basically, I’d like any role that portrays the actress in a very strong and bold image.”

“Bajatey Raho came in as a breather after Fukrey and ‘Ankur Arora Murder Case’. So, basically there was no pressure and I had my space and time while shooting for the movie,” she says. “I have Vikram Bhatt’s comedy flick lined up next in Bollywood and I’m making my Malayalam debut with Rajesh Pillai’s ‘Motorcycle Diaries’,” she adds.

Ask her about her style and she says, “My style quotient is to dress simple and be comfortable in whatever I am wearing. Being simple defines elegance and it is the very essence of fashion.” Is she nervous about the release of Bajatey Raho?  “No, absolutely not. I tend to disconnect myself from the film after the shoot, so there is no tension about the release. It’s what I call ‘guarded optimism’ and it works well for me,” she signs off.
