It is wrong to categorise actors: Divya Dutta
Actor Divya Dutta (left) says she feels bad when people categorise actors into different roles. “I don’t understand why anybody would categorise an actor. A role is a role. You could do a supporting role, you could do a lead, you could do a negative. Why should we categorise an actor then,” asks Dutta.
The Badlapur actor said the only thing which matters is how good or bad the role is. “Today the lead actors are playing all kinds of roles, we don’t categorise them. Irrfan Khan is playing supporting role too but we don’t call him a supporting actor. It’s either a good role or a bad role, nothing more, says Dutta, who is known for portrayal of Ishri Kaur, sister of Milkha Singh in the biographical sports drama film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
She also feels that filmmakers are experimenting with fresh ideas because the audience is open to different genres.
“The audience is changing. They are open to new story ideas, more character-oriented stories. In the same year we have Piku, Badlapur, Tanu Weds Manu Returns, which are all doing well. They are not stereotypical films at all.
