What­ever I Feel At That Point, I Just Do It!

Meet­ing this chirpy lady is like meet­ing a new friend. She’s pas­sion­ate, fo­cused, and most of all ex­tremely happy in the zone that she is in at the mo­ment. She is the very gre­gar­i­ous ISHITA DUTTA. And she seems to have ar­rived in the Bol­ly­wood cir­cuit wit

How does it feel work­ing along­side the hu­mor­ous Kapil Sharma? How is he as a co-star? I have al­ways been a fan of The Kapil Sharma Show and I re­mem­ber when Dr­ishyam was be­ing pro­moted, I couldn’t go to the show for some rea­son. And I was like ‘Oh no! I re­ally wanted to go to The Kapil Sharma Show’. And so when I got done with this film, the first thing that I thought was, ‘Oh my God, I’ll get to go to his show and have so much fun’. On the set, he’s ex­actly like what he ap­pears on the show. He’s re­ally funny, witty and cracks jokes - and we were al­ways sur­rounded by peo­ple who en­joyed his hu­mour. It was fun shoot­ing with him. As an ac­tor he is very good. He learns his lines fast and is so good with them be­cause he talks well. I re­ally en­joyed work­ing with him. In fact, I learnt a lot from him in terms of the comic tim­ing and ev­ery­thing.

Ev­ery­one does it in this in­dus­try… Ka­t­rina Kaif, Malaika Arora - do you see your­self do­ing a Bol­ly­wood item num­ber any time soon? Yes, why not? For me, if it’s go­ing to be work and it’s a part of the movie, and the song and mu­sic is good, and I’m com­fort­able with the clothes. I would do it. I think it’s a personal choice, I don’t re­ally judge any­body else for do­ing a Bol­ly­wood item num­ber.

What is the best part of be­ing a celebrity? Money, fame, re­spect, recog­ni­tion, crit­ics? Ev­ery­thing! I think ev­ery as­pect of it is amaz­ing. Also for me, I get to play dif­fer­ent roles. As a per­son, I’m an in­tro­vert and shy, some­how when the cam­era starts rolling, and I’m in front of it, I en­joy play­ing dif­fer­ent char­ac­ters. I also en­joy it when fans take pic­tures or au­to­graphs. Ob­vi­ously the money is good as well, I would be ly­ing if I said oth­er­wise. You get en­dorse­ments, you can do shows and you can travel the world. Noth­ing about it is bad. It all gives me hap­pi­ness. When I’m shoot­ing, I am gen­uinely happy. As a child, I was very con­fused about what I wanted to do. But dad al­ways told me to do what­ever gives me hap­pi­ness. Al­though money comes and goes, act­ing makes me happy!

What are your strate­gies to stay on the top? I have no strate­gies. I get up ev­ery morn­ing, not know­ing what I’m do­ing in life, whether it’s a Hindi film, web-se­ries, South or Ben­gali film. I’m open to ev­ery­thing! My funda in life is to be happy, work con­stantly, learn and keep mov­ing ahead. I have no strat­egy of be­ing on the top. I would love to be a part of all the big films. But the thing is, it should all gel - what suits me, the time fac­tor, and the sit­u­a­tion. But I’m very chilled out gen­er­ally. What­ever I feel at that point, I just do it!

Is there any­thing that an­noys you on the set? Well, we all have our days when we are shoot­ing out­door and it’s re­ally sunny, and the light is in your eyes, and you get a lit­tle frus­trated and grumpy. But it’s a part of life. I don’t get very worked up. These are small ir­ri­ta­tions that keep hap­pen­ing. And it does not af­fect my per­for­mance. I can switch on and switch off very eas­ily.

Which fa­mous ac­tor and di­rec­tor would you like to work with? I would like to work with Sal­man Khan, Sal­man Khan, and Sal­man Khan. Also, I would love to work with Im­tiaz Ali and a lot of other di­rec­tors as well.
