'Comedy is a difficult genre'

Actor Ragini Dwivedi is known for her confident attitude and for doing justice to every role that she takes up.  As of now she is awaiting the release of 'Naane Next CM' and is winding up the shooting of 'Kicchu'. 'MMCH', an untitled project with Sharan and 'The Terrorist' are the other projects she is excited about.

In a candid chat with Tini Sara Anien,  she  talks about her latest films.

There's a lot happening at your end. How do you feel?

I'm very happy. All my roles are different from each other. To know that I will be able to portray different characters on screen is a very happy thought.

Tell us about your upcoming projects.

I'm working on a comedy film opposite Sharan. It's the remake of the Malayalam film, '2 Countries', and is a fun project. We've shot in Mysuru and it is one place I love shooting. 'MMCH' is a murder-mystery and I'm playing Rani Jhansi, an investigating officer in it.  'The Terrorist', directed by PC Shekar, will be a very intense film.    

How challenging is comedy?

Comedy is  a difficult genre. The movie with Sharan will prove that I am open to all kinds of genres including comedy.    

How would you describe your chemistry with Sharan?

Sharan has become a good friend now. He is an entertainer off and on screen. There's not a dull moment when he is around. He is also very supportive. Recently Sharan said I'm doing a good job and it means a lot to me.

How does it feel to come back as a cop on screen?

It's an interesting role as it  has a dark  edge to it.  

With so many films in hand, how do you balance your schedules?

I am working on  each film schedule by schedule, so it isn't that bad. I  like to work at one film at a time though.

What about a script attracts you to it?

I  like doing movies that I am convinced about.  As an actor, I want to keep stretching my boundaries. I always want to do films that excite me.  

When a film does not work well, how do you handle it?

You can't plan everything. Things don't happen the way you want it. I  put in my best efforts into every role that I take up. But, I am aware that I will not be able to say how the film will fare. You just have to get up, shake yourself and get going again. One cannot be upset about failure forever.  

How do you relax?

I just catch up on my sleep. Besides this, I love travelling and I like going to waterfront areas. Reading and listening to music are my other favourite pastimes.

How do you see yourself 10 years from now?

I haven't planned anything now. I hope to be an entrepreneur someday. I  might also be a director some day. Who knows!
