‘Was not comfortable playing a negative role’
Actor Divya Dutta (left) enjoyed playing the antagonist in her film, Irada, but says she felt out of her comfort zone.
“I was not at all comfortable doing a negative role. But I had a lot of fun. I have not played the role of antagonist often, so this time I had a chance to dig my teeth deep into the character,” she said. The story of the film has been co-written by debutante director Aparnaa Singh and Anushka Rajan.
“The real fun about playing such roles is that they are very layered. So, I get to play a lot on the text and subtext of the character. I hope I have justified myself as an actor, with this role,” said Divya. The actor also praised co-star Arshad Warsi. “He is one of the most nuanced actors we have today and I had a blast shooting with him,” she said.
