‘I never wanted to do a com­mer­cial film’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - An­juri Na­yar Singh

Acom­mer­cial block­buster is of­ten touted as that big break for a new­bie in Bol­ly­wood, how­ever that’s not the case for ac­tor Amyra Das­tur (right). The ac­tor, who was first seen in Is­saq (2013) along­side ac­tor Prateik Bab­bar, says that while she never felt the need to be a part of a com­mer­cial pot­boiler in or­der to get ahead in her ca­reer, she did not see a way out of this stereo­type.

“I am glad about my next film, which is a com­mer­cial film, but it’s not some­thing I wanted to do. I don’t understand why it’s so im­por­tant to do a com­mer­cial film. But I guess it’s some­times about pleas­ing oth­ers,” she says.

Be­ing cast along­side a lead­ing ac­tor is also not a pri­or­ity on Amyra’s wish­list. “I don’t look for a big star to be op­po­site me. All I am con­cerned with is my role. I don’t want to be fur­ni­ture in a film. Even if it’s a five minute role, it has to be im­por­tant enough for the story,” she says.

Amyra, who has also re­cently shot for a mu­sic video with singer Sonu Nigam, says that she is happy with the re­sponse she has got in Bol­ly­wood so far. “Al­though my film Is­saq did not do well, my per­for­mance was ap­pre­ci­ated. I also got a good feed­back for my next film, Mr X,” she says.
