Sanya Malhotra was last seen in Aamir Khan’s Dangal, in which she portrayed the role of wrestler Babita Phogat.

Dangal ‘s super success worked wonders for actor Fatima Sana Shaikh who has bagged Thugs Of Hindostan, starring Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. Her co-star in Dangal, Sanya Malhotra, hasn’t been offered a film as yet. However, she isn’t complaining, and prefers to take it slow. “It’s very important for me to feel creatively excited about a character when I’m reading a script. It should be interesting and at the same time, challenging as well,” she says.

The Delhi-born actor says the only yardstick for her is the role being offered. “ As an actor, what’s important is what I can do with the character and how I can contribute to the script,” she says.

She isn’t worried about taking on similar roles, as she feels that every role is distinct from the other. “If it’s a sequel then obviously it’s a whole new ball game altogether and the script would require a repeat of the character. But other than that, I feel that each character is different in its own unique way. A character that is often used in movies, whether it is a good or a bad influence, is not uncommon. Despite that, the stories of each film are distinct and I don’t mind if I am repeating a role,” she adds.

So does she have any roles in mind that she wants to do? “No, as an actor I want to try and do any role possible. That’s the beauty of our job. We can be anything and everything,” she says.
