I never said I en­joy bold roles: Sana

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out - Monika Rawal Kukreja monika.rawal@htlive.com ■

Ac­tor Sana Khan’s (left) bold scenes with ac­tor Gurmeet Choud­hary in her se­cond film Wa­jah Tum Ho (2016) re­main a topic of dis­cus­sion even two months af­ter the film’s re­lease. To the ex­tent that some have quoted the ac­tor say­ing that she en­joyed the scenes.

But Sana says that it was un­fair to at­tribute the com­ment to her. “Firstly, I never said it, in that con­text. (Also) There’s nothing wrong with do­ing bold scenes. To­mor­row if I play a mur­derer in a vi­o­lent film, you can’t go around and say that I love to kill peo­ple. As an ac­tor, you en­joy the char­ac­ters that you play in a movie,” she says.

She feels that it is more of a re­quire­ment than a choice to have bold scenes in a film, to­day. “You see ev­ery­one to­day, is do­ing bold roles and no film is made with­out end­less kiss­ing scenes that too with A-list stars. Also, peo­ple have the per­cep­tion that new ac­tors, in a bid to get a pro­ject, agree to do bold roles. Ex­cuse me, there are big stars who can pull off a great busi­ness on their own shoul­ders, why are they kiss­ing then? Do they need it to sell their movie? NO!,” she says ad­ding, “We do so be­cause we’ve be­come ad­vanced, we ape Western cul­ture and some­where you want to get re­al­is­tic, which peo­ple have. When you cat­e­gorise ac­tors, it only shows your men­tal­ity.”

Ex­press­ing dis­plea­sure over the way ac­tors are judged based on on­screen char­ac­ters, Sana says, “You can’t judge us by what we por­tray on-screen and con­clude that I’m the same per­son in real life too.”
