Model-turned-ac­tor Di­pan­nita Sharma says that she has been “very lucky” to have played char­ac­ters in films that mean some­thing and are not in the movie just as dec­o­ra­tive pieces. Di­pan­nita has fea­tured in Bol­ly­wood films such as 16 De­cem­ber (2002), My Brother... Nikhil (2005), Ladies vs Ricky Bahl (2011) and Pizza (2012), but has not al­ways played the lead role.

For her, it is im­por­tant to play good and in­ter­est­ing parts that show­case her as an ac­tor as op­posed to a “mean­ing­less lead who only has two songs in a few scenes with a re­ally big ac­tor”.

“As an ac­tor, I do not be­lieve in just lead or sup­port­ing cast. I be­lieve that a char­ac­ter should be in­ter­est­ing. There should be a rea­son why the char­ac­ter is there in the film and I must say that, so far, I’ve been very lucky to have played parts in films that mean some­thing and are not in the film just as a dec­o­ra­tive piece,” says

There should be a rea­son why [any] char­ac­ter is there in the film...I’ve been very lucky to have played parts in films that mean some­thing, and are not in the film just as a dec­o­ra­tive piece.
