onu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ actress Nushrat Bharucha is envious of Shraddha Kapoor because of this reason – Nushrat Bharucha’s latest release Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety may be doing at the box-office and have become the third highest opener of the year after Padmaavat and Pad Man but the actress feels she hasn’t achieved stardom yet.
In an interview to IANS, she confessed to be envious of Shraddha Kapoor because directors are ready to offer her different kind of roles. She said, “How come people are convinced to see the same Shraddha Kapoor as the rich Riya Somani and Haseena Parkar — the sister of an underworld don? (This is) Because she is a star, who has achieved mass popularity, and directors are ready to experiment with her. I haven’t achieved stardom,”
This issue stems for the reason that she was shortlisted for Danny Boyle’s Oscar winning film Slumdog Millionaire but lost the part to Frieda Pinto because the role of a nagging girlfriend which has played in over three films, Pyar Ka Punchnama, Pyar Ka Punchnama 2 and even her Friday release is stuck in directors’ head. She told the news agency, “I think my image is stuck in other people’s perception. I was one of the shortlisted girls for the female lead of the Oscar-winning film ‘Slumdog Millionaire‘ along with Freida Pinto.” She further added, ” But I was not finalised because of my looks. (Director) Danny Boyle’s team sat me down and explained that I do not look like a girl coming from slum area. I was told that I am a damn good actor and everything is perfect except the fact that my look doesn’t fit the character.” This isn’t the only time that has happened to her “It happened to me later also. Casting directors said that I look like an urban girl with sharp features. Maybe that is true, but we are living at a time where a lot of advanced make-up techniques are available.”
Meanwhile, Sonu Ke Tity Ki Sweety has earned over 31.47 crores. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed on Twitter and wrote that the film is an instant hit with Fri 6.42 cr, Sat 9.34 cr, Sun 10.81 cr, Mon 5.17 cr at domestic box-office.
