Actor Konkona Sen Sharma, who announced her split with husband, actor Ranbir Shorey, on Twitter recently, has always been very guarded about her personal life.
She says that she made a public announcement about her seperation on social media, as it seemed like a good platform to put rumours to rest.
“In the past, I faced a lot of speculative writing about my personal life, and I did not enjoy that. I felt that this (Twitter) was a public forum where I could make a formal announcement,” she says.
Ranvir and I have mutually decided to separate, but continue to be friends and co-parent our son. Will appreciate your support. Thank you.— Konkona Sensharma (@konkonas) September 14, 2015
Meanwhile, the actor, who has a list of films lined up, says that the toughest thing about being an actor is spending time away from family.
“We have to stay away from our family for chunks of time, which is tough. Another thing that is very tough is that we have to wait for what gets offered to us. We have no control over that. We have to choose the best from what is offered,” she says.
Konkona, who has been part of films such as Page 3 (2005), Omkara (2006) and Life in a ... Metro (2007), says that the script has always been the primary parameter for her to choose a film.
“For me, the most important part that is offered to me is the script. Other things can be worked out. Now, how the film is received is something that is not in our control. We only have control over how it is made. When we make a film, we can only ensure that we make it to the best of our ability,” she says.
The 35-year-old is all set to direct a project, but says that production will have to wait. “It’s too early to talk about producing (a film). There is a long way to go. There are no concrete plans yet.”
