Riding high on the success of her production debut NH10, Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma has said she wants to experiment as a producer and promised to back films in future regarded as "risky".
"When I read the script it was like any other film I did. It excited me so much that I wanted to make sure that it happened. I think it is a wonderful process of transformation from an actress to a producer," she said giving credit to director Navdeep Singh and writer Sudip Sharma for bringing up such a theme that she could not resist. "In future also we would like to back films that can be considered slightly risky since they don't have song and dance," the 26-year-old, who is in Beijing to attend the screening of the NH10 at the Beijing Film Festival, said.
Anushka got a rousing reception when she attended the film's premiere at the festival with a number of Indians turning up to catch a glimpse of their favourite star.
Elaborating on her switch from typical Bollywood heroine to a neo-noir film actor, Anushka said, "For me as an actor it is brilliant that I can do both song-dance films and also something like NH10. It is versatility which every actor aspires," she said.
About India-China film co-operation, Navdeep said it is a great opportunity and great market to work on beyond regular market. With the co-production treaty in place, it would facilitate films outside the standard Bollywood format, he added.
