Sara Ali Khan, who is recently in the capital to promote her movie ‘Atrangi Re’, seemed.quite confident and her excitement reflected when she said: “Mai Atrangi hoon (I am Atrangi).” Sara is hopeful of attention from the audience that she failed to get in ‘Love Aaj Kal 2’.
She expressed her gratitude for director Aanand.L. Rai, saying: “This opportunity came to me at the right time. After ten days of ‘Kedarnath’, I was on the sets of ‘Atrangi Re’. It was great because people didn’t like ‘Love Aaj Kal’ and I am working for the audience and there was no point in getting depressed. You need to push yourself and that is what Aanand ji did for me.”
Sara further opened up about playing ‘Rinku’ and how she related with her character. “We both are confident people whose confidence even masks their inner vulnerability. But at the same place we are different. I am not rebellious by nature. I will not break the bottles or run away 21 times. I have a very supportive family. I can never dance at my husband’s marriage. And of course, I can’t speak in a Bihari accent.”
It was not easy for Sara to get into the skin of her character but she believes that one should not judge the character. “The most important thing while doing a film is you should not judge your character. That is what Aanand ji told me. He made me fall in love with my on-screen character ‘Rinku’. And once you understand life, you know there is no right or wrong or black and white always. So, you cannot judge everything and that is what I learned and realised while doing this movie.”
The most difficult thing for her is to learn the Bihari accent. She shared: “It was not at all easy. When you go on the sets while doing such movies it is never a cake walk. It is not just about learning the accent but you need to understand the body language, dialogue and dialect so perfectly and.effortlessly that while you are on the sets, you just think about the particular scene and nothing else comes to your mind.”
