Two of actress Tannishtha Chatterjee’s films were screened at the Lonavla International Film Festival India (LIFFI). They were Rough Book and Bret Lee-starrer “UnIndian”.
Tannishtha says she never say never for an out-and-out Bollywood project.
Asked why she has yet not done a typical Bollywood potboiler yet, she said: “It’s just that when I started, I got work and I kept doing that work. Perhaps, I also didn’t go and ask people for work. A lot of times I was travelling or didn’t have dates… But it’s not like Bollywood will not happen”.
“It might happen with roles that I can do justice to as an actor and with roles that do justice to my acting,” she added.
Having worked in films like “Brick Lane”, “Road, Movie”, “Dekhi Indian Circus”, “Anna Karenina”, “Gulab Gang”, “Angry Indian Goddesses” and more, she says she has seen exciting times in her career with different roles in movies of varied genres.
“I’ve worked in British, French, American films, Hindi films and Marathi too…Now I also have a biopic in hand. So, it’s great,” said the acclaimed actress, who is doing a biopic of the first woman doctor in the country, Dr. Rakhmabai.
Her film UnIndian, which featured Australian cricketer Brett Lee, released recently, but her latest release has been “Island City”. “Parched” will release on September 29. – CINEWS
