Actor Anjana Sukhani says when she looks back, she wishes she had taken up something that had potential to do well.
Actor Anjana Sukhani says when she looks back, she wishes she had taken up something that had potential to do well.

With quite a few Hindi and regional films to her credit, actor Anjana Sukhani says there’s much more she wants to do. The 38-year-old actor, who was last seen in Coffee with D alongside Sunil Grover says that as an actor, one can never be satisfied with what they have done in the past. “You’ll always be greedy to do more, do better, and sometimes even regret over a lost option. That’s a very human tendency to say and we are no less.”

So are there any regrets or unfulfilled desires that she wished never existed? “Not really regrets, but I do feel when I look back that I could have taken up something that did well and it was completely my judgment that went wrong,” adds the actor who has done films such as Salaam-E-Ishq (2007), Golmaal Returns (2008), Department (2012) and Shaandaar (2015).

Unlike a lot of other actors who indulge in blame game when their career slows down or doesn’t shape up the way they expected it to, Anjana believes in taking the onus and not cribbing. Ask her what is it that’s holding her back from making it big, she says, “I am the one stopping myself. I somehow like to work at my own pace and create what I like to do. I know somewhere I’m being stuck with the fact that what I want to do, I keep repeating it. Not that it’s something that won’t make me happy or I’ll cringe for having taken it up. But if I don’t feel I want to be part of a film, I would not say yes to it no matter what. It could eventually turn out to be a great project but that’s how I’ve been.”

On whether the mounting competition among the leading ladies of Bollywood is a pressure in any way, Anjana says it’s definitely there and a lot more as compared to what it was a decade ago. “There is competition but you need to fight to make your space. I don’t know if I have made my space according to what people perceive it, as but I think I have a long way to go to lay a very strong foundation as an actor.”
