No glam, no big deal

Anushka Sharma says the notion that an actor will perform better if s/he is in a non-glamorous role is wrong as lack of make-up does not make one a good performer.

Anushka Sharma says the notion that an actor will perform better if s/he is in a non-glamorous role is wrong as lack of make-up does not make one a good performer.

The actress who will next be seen playing a simple, small-town woman in Sui Dhaaga opposite Varun Dhawan, said one should not make a big deal when an actor chooses a character like that.

“This thing about ‘no glamour’, we need to stop talking about it. It isn’t a big deal. If I am in a character like that, I won’t apply make-up. If you’re doing a song in a film like Judwaa, you should do (make-up) because that’s the nature of the film,” Anushka told reporters at the trailer launch of the Sharat Katariya film. “It’s about the character and what all you add to it.”

Pointing out that she has never had a “comfort zone in life”, Anushka said she has chosen roles such as Pari and Sultan, and revealed that she was reluctant to say yes to Sui Dhaaga. She said: “I loved the script, the story, but I said no to the film. I couldn’t believe I could play this character.”
