?All they want to do is add some spice'
Riya Sen speaks to Bhawna Gera about why she is unhappy with the media.
Actress Riya Sen looks quite fed up. No, it is not the way her career is shaping up, but the unnecessary intrusion by media in her life.
“I have become a daily feature for all these magazines and newspapers. Even if I go for shopping it gets noticed. That is all right, but what really upsets me is the fact that people at times quote me without even talking to me. I guess all they want to do is to add some spice,” says the Bong beauty.
But is she planning to take some action? “There is no point in running away from it. There are other famous, good-looking people but I don’t know why I am the most-talked and the most-written about person in the media,” says the actor who is all set for the release of Apna Sapna Money Money.
Talking about her role, Riya says, “My character in the movie is of a simple subdued girl who is not funny. What’s funny are the situations around me.” Even after doing comedies like

, Riya still believes that making people laugh is the most difficult thing.
“You have to get the right expressions which is not easy,” she says. “And more so, when the expectations of the audience are sky high,” she adds. However, she is keeping mum about her future projects. “I have signed a couple of films but it is too early to talk about them.”
Up, close and personal:
A self-proclaimed couch potato, Riya likes to stay at home and spend time with her family. “I cook, read or watch movies. I also go to the gym as and when time permits. I am someone who can watch TV from morning till night, without getting bored.”
