Mumbai, Oct 15: As someone who puts in a lot of effort to select films, veteran actor Revathy says she aims to not repeat a role just to be seen regularly on screen.
The three-time National Award winner said she is in a phase in her career where she can afford to “sit back” when the roles that come her way don’t interest her.
“I take a lot of trouble to select the films that I do. I have to like the entire film and the role that I play. I put a lot of effort and that shows on screen and that’s why people have connected with my characters. I don’t like repeating myself.
“When something nice comes, I take it and if nothing interesting comes, I don’t. These days I don’t do films for the sake of working because I can afford to sit back and enjoy my time,” Revathy, who was last seen in this year’s Telugu-Hindi film “Major”, told PTI in an interview.
Today, she said, there are many diverse opportunities for actors to directors courtesy OTT platforms.
Having acted in Prime Video’s Telugu-language romantic anthology “Modern Love Hyderabad”, the 56-year-old actor-filmmaker said a good content is language and platform agnostic.
“Everyone is busy from actors, directors, writers, music directors, etc and it is good for all of us because there is a lot of work for everybody,” she said. “Content is the master wherever it is and if the content is good, it connects with the audience and automatically more people watch it. I always believe in that and that is what I look at as an actor and as a director,” Revathy added.
Her latest release is “Aye Zindagi”, described as a human drama about life and its many paradoxes. Set against the backdrop of ethical organ transplants, the Hindi film directed by debutant Anirban Bose was released on Friday. (PTI)
