Ranbir's chivalrous: Konkona !!!
Konkona SenSharma is like a chameleon.
On screen, she is sheer magic — changing according to the character she portrays; often stealing the thunder from Bollywood’s beauty queens (Madhuri in Aaja Nachle, Rani in Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Kareena in Omkara) with whom she shares a frame. Off screen, she is pleasant but a bit reticent — not allowing the media to probe beyond a point.
Be that as it may, in her latest outing — Ayan Mukherjee’s Wake Up Sid, this two-time National Award winning actress is putting her best foot forward with B-town’s current heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor. She describes the film as a journey between two individuals who discover each other along the way. And though it may seem like Ranbir and she are mismatched, Koko (as friends call her) feels the magic of the film lies in unravelling their screen chemistry.
Her dark brown eyes light up when she speaks of her young co-star Ranbir who she says is “very talented, chivalrous and an absolute delight to work with’’. Rewinding to five years ago, when she set foot in B-town having already won international acclaim for her mother, Aparna Sen’s Mr & Mrs Iyer, Koko admits that she’s now well settled in Mumbai. “I have made several friends and I’m fortunate to be doing some good work,’’ she says.
Honestly speaking — Konkona is a lucky girl. Just check her track record. While Bollywood’s glamour quotient has to flutter their eyelashes and pucker their lips to get noticed by the likes of Aditya Chopra, Karan Johar, Madhur Bhandarkar, Anurag Basu and Vishal Bhardwaj, these guys have actually sought her out. “I’m lucky to have done films with Adi, Karan, Madhur, Vishal and Anurag,’’ she says modestly. “I guess they came to me because I was best suited for those roles.” But one gets the impression that the 29-year-old actress is sincerely not worried about the competition because deep down she knows that she has a reservoir of talent to draw from.
While many of her contemporaries need artificial aid to get them noticed, she can scorch the screen with her histrionics.
In fact, Konkona is so immensely talented she leaves a blazing trail behind with each of her movie releases. Guess Wake Up Sid will be no different.<img src=http://www.orkut-scrap.net/img/Animated-Dolls/1.gif >
