Even though you have been the sec­ond lead in films, your roles have been well-de­fined in each of the movies. Was the length of the role im­por­tant for you? Dan­ish Amin (Luc­know)

SWARA BHASKAR: I don’t think this busi­ness of sec­ond lead or sup­port­ing ac­tor is re­ally im­por­tant. First of all, I am very picky and choose my films care­fully; that’s why I don’t do much work. Films last for­ever and I am very care­ful about this fact. What you are shoot­ing now, 100 years later might be­come part of some film ar­chive and some film study stu­dents might look up to it. So I am very con­scious of the work I do. My three ma­jor sup­port­ing roles were in Tanu Weds Manu be­cause it was my first break; Ran­jh­naa, in which I just fell in love with the char­ac­ter; and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. As far as Tanu Weds Manu Re­turns is con­cerned, it’s an ex­tended guest ap­pear­ance. It’s a film I came back to be­cause Anand (Rai) sir gave me a break, and so there was no chance to refuse or ques­tion the role. I al­ways wanted to work un­der the Ra­jshri ban­ner be­cause those were films I grew up watch­ing, so the length of the role didn’t mat­ter be­cause ev­ery film I do is for a rea­son. Af­ter play­ing a sup­port­ing ac­tor with Sal­man, there is no greater sup­port­ing ac­tor role one can play.
