Ac­tor Lotty Alaric (right), who has worked in both theatre and Bol­ly­wood, says theatre will al­ways have a loyal au­di­ence. “There will al­ways be theatre lovers in our coun­try. We can’t see them in so many num­bers as com­pared to Bol­ly­wood, be­cause the can­vas of films is big­ger,” says Alaric, who will next be seen with ac­tors Shruti Haasan and Ra­jkum­mar Rao in the film Be­hen Hogi Teri.

Alaric, who was a pre­sen­ter on Lok Sabha tele­vi­sion for 16 years, says, “I don’t worry about manag­ing theatre work and films. When it comes to theatre, I hope that bed­room com­edy comes to an end. That is the only el­e­ment in theatre that I feel needs to be done away with.” Alaric, who is also train­ing young stu­dents in act­ing, says, “I see spark in young peo­ple. They want to make it big in films even­tu­ally, but they want to be part of this side of cinema as well.” The ac­tor, has been part of theatre plays such as Bebe Ka Chamba, is read­ing scripts to take her movie ca­reer ahead. “I am tak­ing things as they come and read­ing more scripts,” she adds.
