Ac­tor Sandeepa Dhar is ex­cited about the cur­rent phase of her ca­reer, where she is es­say­ing lead roles in big-bud­get films. Af­ter her Bol­ly­wood de­but with Isi Life Mein (2010), she went on to do cameos for Da­bangg 2 (2012) and Heropanti (2014). She played the role of ac­tor Kriti Sanon’s sis­ter in Heropanti and was seen as the bride who was saved by Chul­bul Pandey in Da­bangg 2. “I never thought about the length of the roles. It was more im­por­tant for me to see the kind of peo­ple I am work­ing with. For in­stance, when Sal­man Khan of­fered Da­bangg 2, I knew it was some­thing I had to be a part of. And since we both be­gan our re­spec­tive act­ing ca­reers with the same pro­duc­tion house, we share a con­nect,” says Sandeepa. Sim­i­larly, the ac­tor agreed to work in Tiger Shroff star­rer Heropanti be­cause she liked the en­ergy of the film. “Though I had a brief role, my work got ap­pre­ci­ated,” she adds. Asked if she feels con­cerned about be­ing stereo­typed in sup­port­ing roles, the 28-year old says, “I was never wor­ried about get­ting type­cast and luck­ily that didn’t even hap­pen. I don’t think this thing even ex­ists in the in­dus­try any­more. I have never re­gret­ted any de­ci­sion. In fact, I have ben­e­fit­ted by do­ing such roles be­cause the films were suc­cess­ful.”
