The former beauty queen plays a young ad filmmaker in the movie, which has garnered a good response from the critics. Gul is happy to be a part of the project, which is otherwise an all-men saga with Amitabh Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh, Rajat Kapoor and Paresh Rawal in the key roles.
Gul said despite the small role she decided to do the film for the sheer quality and huge canavas that it offered.
"'Rann' was a great film and I am happy to be part of it. When you are working with someone of the calibre of Ram Gopal Varma, rest assured that you are in safe hands. It is definitely nice to be a part of a large project which has a huge canvas to boast of," Gul told PTI.
So, does 'Rann' qualify to be one of the most important films of Gul's career?
"Absolutely not. Yes, I am happy and feel extremely lucky to be a part of it. Still, it would be wrong to say that it is the most important film ever of my career," said the actress, who is known for being very selective when it comes to movies.
In her six years of Bollywood career, Gul has done only eight films.
"My long term perspective when it comes to movies is simple. I want to do cinema which turns out to be a milestone in history. I want to make a substantial enough contribution," she said.
Gul who has modelled her career on her own terms and over a period time has started making a good enough impression in the industry.
The actress denies taking an over calculative approach. "I sign films based on my instinct. It is never about any permutation, calculations or combinations. What's the point? After all sometimes even the best laid plans totally fall flat on their face and fail miserably."
Gul will next be seen in 'A Rectangular Love Story', 'Hello Darling', 'Fatso' and a Prakash Jha production.
