I would love to do a period film: Konkona
After portraying a string of intense and serious contemporary characters on the silver screen, National Award-winning actor Konkona Sen Sharma says she would now love to act in a period film.
"I would love to do a period film now. I have potrayed different characters in films but have never been part of a period film," Ms. Konkona told PTI on the sidelines of a recent event in the national capital.
Known for her sterling performances in films like 'Mr and Mrs Iyer', 'Page 3' and 'Omkara', the 29-year-old actor from Bengal says the commercial aspects of cinema is not something she would die for.
"This business, trade and money involved with films is one aspect of cinema I don't quite like. I just love playing different kinds of roles but not for profit and gains," Ms. Konkona says.
"I am very particular about the films that I watch and want to act in," she adds.
Acting in plays is equally fascinating for Ms. Konkona, who says rehearsing for plays builds up a great atmosphere for an actor.
"I love rehearsing for plays as well as for films, it builds a very stimulative and creative atmosphere."
Talking about her two upcoming flicks, 'Wake Up Sid' and 'Mirch', Ms. Konkona says her character in the two films are distinctly different.
"My character in 'Wake Up Sid' is a very well-written one, where a simple girl meets her complete opposite, played by Ranbir Kapoor and how she faces the world when she comes to Mumbai to become a writer.
In 'Mirch' I play a double role for the first time and it is primarily a film about women and their desires," says Ms. Konkona, who made her debut in the Bengali film 'Ek Je Aachhe Kanya' in 2001.
Asked about being a part of any new project with her mother, Ms. Aparna Sen, Ms. Konkona confirms she is working on an untitled film with the veteran actor-turned-director.
"Yes, I am working on a film with my mother, but that is untitled yet. We are still in the initial stages," says the actor, who won the National Award for her critically acclaimed character of a troubled riot victim in 'Mr and Mrs Iyer' directed by Aparna Sen.
The Bengali beauty also admits she has been very closely associated with Delhi right from her St. Stephen days.
"I did my college here and I was here for four years and plenty of my close friends, my father, my cousins, my aunt are from Delhi and I love the city."
