in Converstaion With... Kubbra sait
Actor Kubbra Sait is all ready to explore her journey in Tinsel Town. In conversation with Rhea Kapadia, Kubbra talks about her experience on working with Salman Khan and performance in the latest webseries SacredGames.
You have a degree in Finance and Marketing so how did showbiz come your way? It was monotony, and a sense of being reduced to a robot that brought about a change in my career. I was working overseas and I had strict bound schedules to work around so it was not a feasible place to be in. I never felt excited so I decided to quit it and move to Mumbai. That was eight years ago and since I’ve moved here, it seems life has changed one day at a time. From being a successful anchor to becoming an actor, how has the process been? I don’t see it to be very different because it’s the same spectrum of entertainment. It’s just that as an anchor I express what I want to say in that moment and as an actor, I am still expressing but I am expressing via the medium of a character. I think the freedom of expression in acting for me is far more. So I’ve always seen both of them go hand in hand. How was it working in Sultan with Salman Khan? For me, it’s a lot of fun when I’m working with Salman because you get pampered to a different level. It was also my second film with him so he kept making fun of me because in my first film I worked as a maid so he would always laugh and say, “Dekho, maid ko kitne achhe kapde pehna diye iss film mein.” So it was really lovely to work with Salman Could you tell us about your upcoming webseries Sacred Games? I had the great fortune of working alongside Nawazuddin Siddiqui, I play his love interest in the series. It’s a very critical and twisted character and I can surely say that it’s a character that has never been attempted by a female actor in the business. If I’m not wrong, nobody has done it before. So I am super thrilled about it and extremely happy that through my series of auditions, Anurag Kashyap was able to see that I could deliver the kind of character he was searching for. Finally, what is your dream project, is there any actor or director you want to work with in particular? I think I’d like to be inspired as much as I can so I don’t want to be like ‘Hey, I want to work with you or I don’t want to work with you’. I want to work with as many people and as many projects that come my way. Also, I am too young to have my dream project; so I don’t have a dream project yet! But every project is going to take me one step closer to it.
