She’s been in the news more for her break up with cricketer Yuvraj Singh than her career in films. However, actor Kim Sharma has two releases coming up. She speaks to HT City on her penchant for comedy, work and Yuvraj.
It has been quite some time since we last saw you on screen…
It wasn’t my fault because the release of a film is not in my hands. My job is to act and I never ask the producers when the film’s
going to release.
So, you are doing films...
I am only doing films. I have just completed shooting for Money Hai To Honey Hai. It’s a big release for me and I will soon start shooting for Popcorn Entertainment’s Loot with Govinda. Both these films are comedies and I am all excited.
Are you trying to change your image with comedies?
I am not trying anything. Why should I? The comedies just happened. I liked the roles and that’s why I am doing these films.
Your last few releases did not work at the box office…
I took a few wrong decisions but I am a lot more conscious now. I am not considering anything and everything coming my way. The films I am doing now have more substance.
<b1>But they are all glamorous roles.
I like doing glamorous roles. If I have a good figure why should I back out? I have been working a lot on my figure, especially for Money Hai To Honey Hai and am in great shape now.
So you had to show skin again?
If the role demands it and I have the figure why not? But that doesn’t mean that I am showing skin at every opportunity. I am
doing serious roles too… even dark characters.
You mean the one in The Whisperers?
It’s a serious film…a psychological thriller and my character has dark shades. It’s negative and I absolutely have no problems playing such roles.
Did your break up with Yuvraj bring a halt to your career?
I would rather keep silent.
Wasn’t your relationship with Yuvraj more talked about than your films?
Right now I am single and happy. What is over is over. There’s no point talking about it. I am only focussing on my career.
Do you feel your career is over?
Do you think so? You wouldn’t be taking my interview had it been over. I would have gone into isolation on my own.
