Actress Kainaz Motivala, who will soon be seen in the role of a chauffeur in "Challo Driver", says she chose this unusual role as she wanted to shed her bold image that she acquired after her debut film "Ragini MMS".
"That's exactly why I took up this film. After 'Ragini MMS' I was flooded with offers of similar roles - sex films, bold films. It had become Kainaz 'Bold' Motivala and I did not like that tag at all, and I had to get rid of that tag somehow," the 25-year-old actress said here Wednesday at a promotional press conference of the film.
"When I could have starred in 10 films, I decided I'd much rather wait and do one good film which will rid me of that tag because I didn't want to get typecast. The best thing about an actor is that you do something different everyday. I am open to any genre and I definitely don't want to do just one thing," she added.
She enjoyed playing the driver's role and says it was not at all difficult.
"Driving is a complete stress buster for me. Not in Mumbai, here it is more of a stress giver than a stress buster. But I do enjoy driving when the roads are empty," said Kainaz, who was also seen in small roles in "Paathshala" and "Wake Up Sid."
What was challenging was to play a Delhi girl convincingly.
"Preparing as a chauffeur was not a problem because I have been driving since I was 18. But I had to prepare, in the sense, this girl is from Delhi and Delhi girls are different from Mumbai girls in many ways. That is what I had to work on," said Kainaz.
Vickrant Mahajan plays the male lead and he has also directed "Challo Driver".
