THE ONE TAKE AC­TOR

Financial Chronicle - - NONE OF MY BUSINESS -

WITH ev­ery film and char­ac­ter that she plays on-screen, it’s her ob­ses­sion to get it per­fect at a go and that makes Sridevi be­lieve that she is a one-take ac­tor.

“I don’t re­mem­ber do­ing more than one take for a film. I think the first take is best as you are spon­ta­neous and af­ter that it be­comes a me­chan­i­cal thing. I don’t be­lieve in sec­ond take at all,” Sridevi says in an in­ter­view with PTI.

For the Chaal­baaz ac­tor it is the qual­ity of a role that is of ut­most im­por­tance to her. “I feel lucky and I have to thank my writ­ers, di­rec­tors and pro­duc­ers for giv­ing me great part’s to play on screen. There is good qual­ity (work around). I don’t want to do films just be­cause I have to do it. I am al­ready busy at home, I en­joy be­ing at home. I have two daugh­ters. If there is some­thing out of the box and good then only I do it,” Sridevi says.

The noted ac­tor seems to be crit­i­cal of her as she says she is never happy with her own work. But with her lat­est

Mom she knew things were go­ing right. “The re­ac­tion was pos­i­tive dur­ing the trial of the film. We knew we did not go wrong any­where tech­ni­cally and story wise. I am happy see­ing the au­di­ence re­ac­tion to the film and the char­ac­ter. When I look back I think I could have done this scene or that bet­ter. I am not sat­is­fied with my work at all. I think I could have done bet­ter. I am never sat­is­fied,” she added.

Mom is a re­venge drama por­tray­ing a mother’s valour and the length she is will­ing to get jus­tice for her child. The Sadma ac­tor says, both as an artiste and as a mother in real life, she per­son­ally felt the rage and agony that her char­ac­ter Devki un­der­went in the film.

“The char­ac­ter hit me strongly. It was all about emo­tions and feel­ing them. I with­drew my­self as an ac­tor from ev­ery­thing on the sets. I did not plan to be aloof or not talk to any­body, it (story) did not al­low me to do it. When I am do­ing a role like this it was im­pos­si­ble for me to be in a nor­mal space. I hope this in­ci­dent never hap­pens with any­body. My doc­tor told me I was a dif­fer­ent per­son dur­ing and af­ter the shoot­ing the film.” The film will pre­miere on Novem­ber 18 on Pic­tures chan­nel. — PTI/Mum­bai
