Delhi girl Minissha Lamba, who did not have a substantial role to play in Madhur Bhandarkar's Corporate, pins her hopes on her next release Anthony Kaun Hai.
"I play this pragmatic girl in the film who believes in calling a spade a spade. She has lived in Bangkok all her life and never takes crap from anyone. She is someone with a great sense of fairness. Life has been unkind to her family but that hasn't made her bitter."
Anthony Kaun Hai stars Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi and Minissha says Arshad is a very caring co-star, reports Bollywood Trade.
Minissha and Arshad will be seen together in Anthony Kaun Hai
"I don't have any scenes with Sanjay Dutt in the film. As far as Arshad Warsi is concerned, I think he is the most spontaneously funny person I have ever met in my life. He is very kind to his co-stars and takes great interest in the performances of other characters. He never made me feel like a newcomer."
Talking about the music of Anthony Kaun Hai, she said: "It's done by Himesh Reshammiya. This film marks a turn in his musical composition in terms of beats and melody. When you will hear the songs, you'll be like - 'hey, who's composed the music of this song?' My favourite track is Because I love you."
A graduate in English Honours from Miranda House, Minissha wanted to be a "war correspondent" and says acting happened by chance.
"Acting just happened to me; it was like one thing led to the other. I have learnt a lot after my debut film Yahaan. There's no end to learning and growing, I feel.
"I am happy with whatever I have done. It's been a very fulfilling journey for me. The film industry and people have been fairly kind and compassionate to me."
She is open to item numbers.
"I have no issues with anything. Item numbers, songs and dances are an integral part of Bollywood and I wouldn't mind doing it. Besides, it's like an evolution to that genre. I have not closed my mind to anything."
Minissha dreams one day she will play Kate Winslet's role in a remake of Titanic.
"I believe in breaking new grounds and till date all my roles have been different from each other by a few degrees. I want to be versatile. I would love to essay the role of Kate Winslet in the remake of Titanic. There's an endless wish list of directors and artistes with whom I want to work."
Minissha admits actors have a huge responsibility of looking good round the clock and her fitness rule is to follow a disciplined lifestyle.
"I try to work out as often as I can. We have to be in shape, considering our glamorous profession. We have to maintain a decent, svelte figure, which calls for a disciplined lifestyle."
She will also be seen in Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd, a light-hearted romantic comedy about relationships, and Rocky, an action love story.
Apart from films, Minissha, who was known as 'Cadbury' girl, is doing advertisements too. She will soon endorse D'damas and has 'Provogue' and 'Neutrogena', a new skin product.
