I am the one stop­ping my­self from mak­ing it big: An­jana

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - Monika Rawal Kukreja

With quite a few Hindi and re­gional films to her credit, ac­tor An­jana Sukhani (left) says there’s much more she wants to do. The 38-year-old ac­tor, who was last seen in Cof­fee with D along­side Su­nil Grover, says that as an ac­tor, one can never be sat­is­fied with what they have done in the past. “You’ll al­ways be greedy to do more, do bet­ter, and some­times even re­gret over lost chances.”

So are there any re­grets or un­ful­filled de­sires? “Not re­ally re­grets, but I do feel when I look back that I could have taken up some­thing that did well but it was com­pletely my judg­ment that went wrong,” adds the ac­tor who has done films such as Salaam-EIshq (2007), Gol­maal Re­turns (2008), Depart­ment (2012) and Shaan­daar (2015).

Un­like a lot of other ac­tors who in­dulge in blame game when their ca­reer slows down or doesn’t shape up the way they ex­pected it to, An­jana be­lieves in tak­ing the onus and not crib­bing. Ask her what is it that’s hold­ing her back from mak­ing it big, she says, “I am the one stop­ping my­self. I some­how like to work at my own pace and cre­ate what I like to do. I know some­where I’m get­ting stuck. I don’t want to move out of my com­fort zone.”

On whether the mount­ing com­pe­ti­tion among the lead­ing ladies of Bollywood is a pres­sure in any way, An­jana says, “There is com­pe­ti­tion and you need to fight to make your space. I don’t know if I have made mine yet.”
