‘WAS NOT COMFORTABLE PLAYING A NEGATIVE ROLE’
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.
