Film industry knows importance of actors, not just stars: Bidita Bag
Mumbai - 29 Aug 2017 11:12 IST
Actress Bidita Bag, whose latest release Babumoshai Bandookbaaz tanked at the box office, says the film industry knows the importance of actors and not just stars.
"This industry is very fair. People in the industry are known because of their talent and their hard work. If an actor does not showcase his worth in films, then he or she will no more be a part of this industry. If you see superstars, they are also here because of the work they do. The film industry knows the importance of actors and not just stars," Bag said at the trailer launch of her upcoming film Rabbi on Monday, 28 August.
Rabbi is a story of the rise and fall of a young musician, essayed by fresh face Furqan Merchant. Bag, who was seen in a very bold avatar in her previous film, said her role in Rabbi is a complete opposite.
"You will see me in a completely different avatar than what you have seen in Babumoshai Bandookbaaz. I play the character of a girl from Kashmir. She belongs to a conservative family, but she has very liberal thoughts even though she might look very traditional in her outer appearance," she said.
When asked if the project was shot before her recent success, the actress said: "I did Rabbi before Babumoshai Bandookbaaz. There are a number of social films that I have worked in before and after Babumoshai Bandookbaaz. Now that one film has turned out to be a hit, I hope to work in more films as soon as possible."
Rabbi also stars Raghuvir Yadav, Dolly Ahluwalia, Brijendra Kala and Virendra Saxena. Directed and produced by Rahat Kazmi, the film is set to be release on 15 September.
