Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - Front Page -

Ac­tor Divya Dutta (above right) en­joyed play­ing the an­tag­o­nist in her film, Irada, but says she felt out of her com­fort zone.

“I was not at all com­fort­able do­ing a neg­a­tive role. But I had a lot of fun. I have not played the role of an­tag­o­nist of­ten, so this time I had a chance to dig my teeth deep into the char­ac­ter,” she said. The story of the film has been co-writ­ten by debu­tante di­rec­tor Apar­naa Singh and Anushka Ra­jan.

“The real fun about play­ing such roles is that they are very lay­ered. So, I get to play a lot on the text and sub­text of the char­ac­ter. I hope I have jus­ti­fied my­self as an ac­tor, with this role,” said Divya. The ac­tor also praised co-star Ar­shad Warsi. “He is one of the most nu­anced ac­tors we have to­day and I had a blast shoot­ing with him,” she said.
