'Fashion is simple unless misinterpreted'

'Fashion is simple unless misinterpreted'

It’s the most exciting phase of model-turned-actress Dipannita Sharma’s career! She has been working back-to-back on three projects that are totally different from each other – Pizza, Ikka Top and ‘Take It Easy.

“I was shooting at night all these days but thankfully, one of the projects is coming to an end,” she tells Metrolife. While Pizza is a horror film (a remake of the hit Tamil film of the same name), Ikka top is a thriller and Take It Easy, a social drama. “I was told by the director to not watch the original,” she says about Pizza.

 “The character that I am playing is created differently for the Hindi audiences. But now that the shoot is almost over, I will probably watch it,” she smiles. In Ikka Top, Dipannita plays “an uber-glamorous girl working with the Russian mafia in Goa”. “I have never played an out-and-out glamorous character before,” she notes. “‘Take It Easy’ is an interesting social drama in which I play a middle class homemaker,” she says.

The pretty actress worked back-to-back on the three films and thoroughly enjoyed it! “You have to make do with things like this once in a while. It’s actually when your real strength comes into play,” she notes. Post Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl (2011) and Jodi Breakers (2012), she wasn’t seen on the silver screen for a while. Ask her why and she answers, “I have always done films in spurts! I can’t do a film just for the sake of a release.”

There were also rumours of Dipannita scripting a movie on fashion. “Actually, the news came out too early,” she laughs. “But fashion is portrayed in a cliched way in films. It’s always a one-sided view. I want to show the fact that not everyone goes through the dirty route,” she adds.

Extremely happy with the way smaller films like Vicky Donor and Queen have been appreciated, Dipannita says, “Now you have an audience for every genre and all you need is a good story. It’s encouraging for actors like me.” Though she had a stint with reality TV on Khatron Ke Khiladi, she is not up for it again. “I don’t want to be a participant on a reality show again. I will be happy to judge a fashion show and pick talent like how I had done on Making The Cut,” she says.

Speaking of fashion, she says that her style statement is “elegant chic with an edge”. And her advice to all fashion lovers is, “Fashion is simple unless misinterpreted. Be careful with advice and don’t go by every portal. Dress according to your body type and you will look smashing!”
