'Playing a cop was not easy'

'Playing a cop was not easy'

Sandalwood actor Sneha of 'First Love' and 'Women's Day' fame is excited that 2018 is turning out to be a fruitful year. The actor  has two upcoming projects 'Rajveer' and 'Badal' and  is content about the strong roles she is playing. In a candid chat with Tini Sara Anien, she talks about her roles and her plans for the  year ahead.

Are you in a happy space?

I couldn't be more happy. I want to keep acting and I  am hoping that lady luck will keep favouring me. The year 2018 seems to be a blessed one.

Have you made any resolutions for 2018?

I do not make any resolutions. I just change myself whenever I feel the need for it. I have identified things I want to  do for my career like enhance my acting skills.  I want to feel more confident on screen and I am working towards that.  

Tell us about your upcoming projects.

Both  my  upcoming movies, 'Rajveer' and 'Badal', will see me play strong characters. I play 'Khaki Kavya', a cop in 'Rajveer' and my character in 'Badal' is depicts women-empowerment. My character is raised by a transgender. The exciting part about 'Badal' is that  my role is connected to a horse.  

Was it challenging to do these roles?

I am still learning and thus face many roadblocks.  Playing a cop was not easy, especially for someone who is as light-hearted as me. I am a happy soul. It was difficult to be arrogant on screen. My director  told me that watching other movies will only make me replicate  other actors' performances. I had to bring in my own style and it has been a very fulfilling experience.

How has your experience been in Sandalwood?

I have learnt that working with fresh talent is  an  enriching experience. In a new team, everyone is open to suggestions.  

What defines an actor?

An actor is anyone who has the confidence to exhibit good acting skills, works on emoting properly and  connects with the audience.

Do you have a dream role?

I want to work with challenging characters and roles that motivate me. I do not have rigid ideas and I am open to everything as long as it pushed my boundaries. I just want to  do work which will be noticed.

You were a model earlier. Did that help you with your career?

They are different fields. Both have their own challenges. Walking on the ramp in heavy outfits is not easy. But emoting and delivering dialogues that should make an effect can be  more tricky.

How do you see yourself in five years?

I  hope to be a sought-after and successful actor by then. I do not see myself  in any other industry.
