Actor Sana Khan’s bold scenes with Gurmeet Choudhary in her second film Wajah Tum Ho (2016) remain a topic of discussion even after two months of the film’s release. To the extent, some even quoted the actor saying that she enjoyed the scenes. However, the actor says that it was unfair to attribute the comment to her. “Firstly, I never said it in that context. (Also), there’s nothing wrong in doing bold scenes. Tomorrow if I play a murderer in a violent film, you can’t go around and say that I love to kill people. As an actor, you enjoy the characters that you play in a movie.”
The actor who got her first big break in Bollywood in Salman Khan-starrer Jai Ho (2014) feels that it has become more of a requirement than a choice to have bold scene in a film.
“You see everyone today is doing bold roles and no film is made without endless kissing scenes that too with A-list stars. Also, people have this perception that new actors, in a bid to get a project, agree to do bold roles or kissing. Excuse me, there are such big stars after who can pull off a great business on their own shoulders, why are they kissing then? Do they need it to sell their movie? NO!,” she says, adding, “ We do that because today we’ve become advanced and started aping Western culture. Somewhere you want to get more realistic, which people have become. So when you start categorizing actors, it only shows your mentality.”
Expressing displeasure over the way actors are often perceived and judged based on their onscreen characters, Sana adds that films are different from reality shows and people need to respect this fact. “Actors are here to perform various kind of roles and we represent some another character. You can’t judge us by what we portray on screen. After watching a movie, you can’t conclude that I am the same person in real life too. While doing a film, I’m trying to stay connected to my character and that’s not what who I am in real,” she says.
