Comfortable with her screen image

Many Avatars

Comfortable with her screen image

Firm: Amrita Rao

The actress says she has no qualms in portraying characters with different shades and her image depends on the kind of roles that she gets.

“Many thought that I went for a bold makeover for success. I find it funny because I have no problem with my image,” said Amrita. She says she approaches every role with the same spirit, which truly represent the different avatars of the normal Indian girl.

“I have not taken any formal training in acting. Whatever roles I have got in films till now, I have played them whole-heartedly. If as an actress I do not believe in my roles then how can I expect the audience to do the same?” said Amrita. She insists that even if she is asked to play a negative character or someone dealing with mental trauma, she will not step back. She also feels that versatile acting should not be given tags like ‘Indian’ or ‘Western’. “Be it Ishq Vishq, Welcome to Sajjanpur or Vivaah, I have always played an Indian girl but I have portrayed it in a different light every time,” she said.

However, she feels that Indian audience have limited options and film-makers go for blockbuster ideas, which have been successful in the past. Amrita will next be seen in Rajshri Productions' Love You.. Mister Kalakaar which, she says, will show a different facet of her personality.
