‘Bedroom comedy needs to be done away with’
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.
