Upasna to play a cop in a film

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - YASHIKA MATHUR

Known for play­ing Pinky bua in a com­edy show on tele­vi­sion, ac­tor Upasna Singh (above) is used to ex­per­i­ment­ing with her look and try­ing on dif­fer­ent get-ups. Now, she is set to don the khakhi, but for an up­com­ing movie. Upasna, who is very ex­cited to play a po­lice­woman, hopes that her au­di­ence will like her in this new avatar.

The ac­tor, who has ear­lier worked in films such as Ju­daai (1997), Ai­traaz (2004) and Jatt & Juliet (2012), says: “This is the first time that I’d be play­ing the chal­leng­ing char­ac­ter of a fe­male cop. Peo­ple know me as the bub­bly Pinky bua, so play­ing a po­lice­woman is very dif­fer­ent for me,” says Upasna, who will be seen in film­maker Man­wani Anand’s de­but film.

The 40-year-old adds that to per­fect her por­trayal of the char­ac­ter, she watched many cop-based films. “I im­pro­vised my char­ac­ter to bring out the best and do jus­tice to the role. I watched a lot of movies to un­der­stand how ac­tors have ear­lier played a fe­male cop,” says Upasna.
