Model-turned-actress Dipannita Sharma says she wants to come out of her comfort zone to do challenging roles. The 37-year-old actress is playing a paranormal character in supernatural thriller ‘Pizza’ and is shedding her glamorous image to portray a middle-class housewife and mother in ‘Take it Easy’.
“I want to do challenging roles now. I did loads of glamorous parts in the past but now I won’t do. In ‘Take it Easy’, I am playing a mother. She is a middle class housewife. Whereas, in ‘Pizza’ I am playing a paranormal character. It’s is refreshing to play such characters,” Dipannita told PTI.
Being directed by theatre personality Sunil Prem Vyas, ‘Take it Easy’ marks his entry in Bollywood.
Dipannita started her career in films with action spy thriller ’16 December’. But she did only handful of films including ‘Dil Vil Pyar Vyar’, ‘My Brother… Nikhil’, ‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’ and ‘Jodi Breakers’ in her 13-year-old career. Dipannita says she does not want to do a film just to be in the limelight.
“I don’t want to do a film just to have a release every year. I am not that kind of a person who meets people for work. Breaks in career do not matter to me,” she said.
The former model is also penning a film script on fashion industry. Dipannita says her story focuses the positive side of the glamour world.
“I have been working on it now. This script is very close to my heart and I really wanted to show the audience some good side of it too. I feel people so far have seen the controversial side of it. There is always two sides to a coin and I would like to show the wonderful and professional parts of the fashion world,” she said.
