‘ Entire film ensemble is important’

I think when I choose a character, I look at it as a challenge and if it is something that I have done before, I try to make it better,” Amrutha speaks with Yashika Mathur.

OTT is a normal platform for the present period of film industries. Actress Amruta Khanvilkar is gearing up for the release of her Marathi film “Well Done Baby” on OTT. She says her job is to act well and not be concerned about which platform her project releases.

“I feel any kind of work that gets a bigger audience is a win-win situation. I think I am getting the best of both worlds. Before lockdown, two of my very big films were released. One was ‘Malang’ in Hindi and ‘Choricha Mamla’ in Marathi, and both did really well. I think for actors it is important to do our job and not think about which platform (the work) is going to be released. When you work with dedication, everyone sees it. Across platforms, what I can do is see what I bring to the table,” she told .

She added: “For me, choosing scripts does not depend on whether it is a feature film or an OTT project. For me, the script, the director, the story and the entire ensemble is important and not where it’s going to be showcased.”

The actress has worked in digital space earlier, in the series “Damaged”. Reflecting on why digital platforms can have an edge over feature films, Amruta feels it has to do with the availability of stronger content.

“I feel very confident while doing my work and choosing my character. It is irrespective of it being a project on OTT or feature films It’s just that OTT gives you an edge over choosing bolder and more content driven films other than feature films. I think when I choose a character, I look at it as a challenge and if it is something that I have done before, I try to make it better,” she says.

Talking about “Well Done Baby”, which also stars actor Pushkar Jog, Amruta says: “My character is a very strong, stubborn, career oriented girl, who is working through a failed marriage and in the process of that, she gets pregnant. How she has to tackle her dreams and aspirations along with her baby along with the baby starts taking a toll on her. A very common thing between me and my character is that she is very connected to her mom. I had a blast performing this character.”

Bhumi wants to make some changes

Bhumi says that she refuses to accept the “beauty standard” set for women…reports Asian Lite News.

Bhumi is always in the limelight, not only in films but also in the relevant social issues and concerns. From playing an overweight girl in “Dum Laga Ke Haisha” to a character battling patriarchy in “Sonchiriya”, actress Bhumi Pednekar says she refuses to abide by the image of the quintessential Bollywood actress.

Bhumi adds that she wants to change the way people think about women through these roles.

“For many, it has always been about the outer physical beauty. But gone are those days when people were concerned (about only that). My thing was that it doesn’t matter. I am going to change your definition of what a quintessential Hindi film female actor is all about,” she says.

She adds: “We are all in this profession — the idea is to perform all these different parts and be part of these amazing stories that move people, bring about a change. That is exactly what I am going to do.”

Bhumi says that she refuses to accept the “beauty standard” set for women.

“I want to create a beauty standard of my own and that is exactly what I am trying to do. Through my cinema, I really want to bring about a change. I want people to love themselves, I want people to be more accepting of who they are, I want to entertain my audiences for sure and that is my number one priority. I want to leave them with a thought, a positive thought, a thought that will make their world a better place,” she says.
