'I enjoy being alone'

'I enjoy being alone'

Actor Samyukta Hornad had four releases and completed the shooting of another four films last year. The new year looks good with four films ready for release and two more in the pipeline.

The actor is thrilled that she's getting to play contrasting roles. In 'MMCH', she essays a very bold role. "I play one of the four characters. My role is of a very bold girl who has no inhibitions about herself. She is unlike any woman and doesn't think twice before hitting somebody. Her brash ways land her in a lot of trouble," explains Samyukta. All the four heroines in this film are accused of murder, adds Samyukta. "It's an interesting story of four women who are put behind bars. Did they really commit a crime? Or are they made scapegoats? These are some of the questions that are answered in the second half of the film," adds Samyukta.

She says that she found it hard to relate to the character at first. "I have never played a rowdy-like role before and it wasn't easy for me to get under the skin of a woman who doesn't spare anybody and takes revenge on those who cross her path. The character was too unreal for me," she adds.

Samyukta will also be seen playing an interesting character in 'Nanu Mattu Gunda' which explores the relationship between a man and his dog.
"I found the story and the character to be very different from what I regularly get offered. I enjoyed working with two dogs in the film. I love dogs and there were scenes when I had to scold the dog and some other scenes when I had to show extreme love. Since I am a dog lover, the contrast was interesting," says Samyukta.

In another project titled, 'Arshadavarga', Samyukta plays one of the five characters. "The story is written around six sins and has five characters in it. Every character has a dark side to it and I have two contrasting portions to my role," she says.

She explains that she essays the role of an actor who battles insecurities. "My character always tries to run away from problems and is caught between understanding reality and what she really wants. Every actor in this project has the liberty to improvise and make their contribution," she says.
Samyukta has also completed a Telugu project. "I have stayed away from home for most of last year. I don't get homesick and in fact, I enjoy being alone," she adds.
