Be it the bub­bly Aisha from Ek Vil­lain (2014), or the angsty Sia in Baaghi (2016)––ac­tor Shrad­dha Kapoor (right) has usu­ally played di­verse roles in her films. How­ever, she says that it did not hap­pen without per­sonal re­search. The ac­tor un­der­stands her char­ac­ter be­fore she starts shoot­ing. “For me, por­tray­ing any char­ac­ter is not a mat­ter of one or two days. It is what I live in, for months. So, if I am play­ing some­one like Haseena (Da­wood’s sis­ter) in my next film, I kept her pic­tures in my phone and un­der­stand how she looked. For ev­ery char­ac­ter, I learn the nu­ances of her pro­fes­sion, the emo­tions in­volved. It helps me give a bet­ter per­for­mance,” says Shrad­dha.

“As an ac­tor, Shrad­dha is blessed to learn and im­bibe sev­eral as­pects of life through var­i­ous char­ac­ters, that one por­trays on screen. There is a cer­tain amount of prep that goes into play­ing each of them on screen,” says the ac­tor’s spokesper­son.
