I CAN’T FAKE IT: AISHWARYA
The Daddy actor says she can’t act like a typical female actor
Actor Aishwarya Rajessh, who is already a big name in the Tamil film industry, made her Bollywood debut with Daddy, which released earlier this month. She played the role of gangster Arun Gawli’s wife, Asha, in the film that starred actor Arjun Rampal in the titular role.
Talking about all the advice she’s getting, considering she’s a newcomer, the 27-yearold says, “Basically, I just don’t take any advice. I just be myself. Some say, ‘you have to be careful about what you say’. But, in all my interviews, I have said whatever I wanted to. I can’t fake it, or act like those typical female actors.”
Her Bollywood debut might have flopped, but she’s thankful she gave her nod to the project. The actor is all praises for Arjun, also the producer of the film, directed by Ashim Ahluwalia. “He (Arjun) helped me a lot during the shoot. The first few days on the sets were full of confusion, [as to] who was who, who was Ashim! When you are not comfortable with the cast and the crew, it gets reflected in your performance. Everyone made me feel relaxed and I was able to do justice to my role,” she says.
What does she feel about Alhluwalia’s comment that 95 per cent actors in Bollywood can’t act? “How a director watches a film is very different from how an actor will. That’s his opinion.”
