Dear

Stardust (English) - - NEWS -

You have been a fine ac­tress in all the films you have done. It would be good to know, as a sea­soned ac­tress your­self, who you think is that one promis­ing ac­tor or ac­tress from the cur­rent crop, who will make it big in Bol­ly­wood? Vikrant Rana, (In­dore)

RATNA PATHAK SHAH: There are a lot of very in­ter­est­ing ac­tors, in theatre and in films. At the mo­ment it does look promis­ing. I wouldn’t like to pick any one per­son, but I find that gen­er­ally, the level of per­for­mance has got­ten pumped up. On stage, which is what I watch much more, I find there are a va­ri­ety of re­ally good ac­tors. There’s Pooja Swa­roop, who is prob­a­bly one of the best ac­tresses in this coun­try at this mo­ment. There is Namit Das, Anand Ti­wari, and Neil Bhoopalam, who are fan­tas­tic; there is Kalki (Koech­lin) and Konkana (Sen Sharma) who strad­dle both, films and theatre, and th­ese are the peo­ple I have great hope in as ac­tors. I think they will de­velop as ac­tors. Among the cur­rent main­stream cin­ema lot, I think Alia Bhatt who I have seen a bit of, and who I see has po­ten­tial, may make a good ac­tress if she doesn’t get lost along the way. Nawazud­din Sid­diqui is a great find. Sad to call him a find when he has been around so long, but for me, he is a rev­e­la­tion. I am to­tally blown by him. He is so good in ev­ery­thing he does. There are many things to look for­ward to.
