New Delhi, June 15 (IANS) Actress Parineeta Borthakur, who essays a modern Bengali woman in “Swaragini”, says she would be happy if her character Sharmishtha becomes negative.
“I would be the happiest if Sharmishtha turns negative. I know a lot of viewers would hate me, but I am an actor and I love to experiment. Monotony can be quite boring. I loved the character of Sharmishtha initially because it was a strong character.”
“Unfortunately, it has not been maintained the same,” she said in a statement.
Parineeta said she hates being portrayed as a “bechari” (helpless) woman.
“So, if I get to play negative, why not? A lot of people may not think I would look negative, but trust me I am an actor and playing a plethora of characters like negative, positive, rich, poor, innocent, glamorous or any other is my job,” she added.
Apart from acting, Parineeta likes to read novels, watching movies and writing stories.
“I also write poems sometimes,” she said
“I have a family. So, when I am not shooting, I go to drop and pick up my son from school and help him with his homework. He doesn’t like it if I go out without him when I am not shooting. But I do cheat sometimes. I make him sleep early and go for movies or dinner if I don’t have to shoot the next day,” she shared.
