Diana Penty is returning to the big screen after four years ‘with certain kind of pressure’. The 30-year-old actress was last seen in her debut movie Cocktail in 2012.
“There is a certain kind of pressure with Happy Bhag Jayegi. Even personally, you want to be as good as you were before or do better. I am aware that the audience is expecting something from me. Now, everybody has started calling the film as my ‘comeback’, so I know that I have to deliver,” Diana said in an interview. The actress says her role in Happy Bhag Jayegi is different from Cocktail.
Happy Bhag Jayegi, directed by Mudassar Aziz, also stars Abhay Deol, Jimmy Shergill, Ali Fazal, Piyush Mishra among others. The film will release on August 19.
Diana says the four-year-long gap in films may have been a bad move but she was following her instincts. She says her absence from films was due to the fact she did not want to put any pressure on herself.
“The break was not a conscious decision or idea that I am not going to do anything. I feel like it has been misinterpreted. I just played it by year and didn’t put any pressure on myself. Cocktail happened overnight for me. I didn’t have the time to think about it, I suddenly got into films without even realising what I was doing,” she said.
Diana said she was offered several projects during her break but none of them was not up to the levels that she was willing to direct herself into. – CINEWS
