TellyBuzz spoke to Aamna regarding her acting experience with the Ek Villain
star cast, her future plans and yes of course not to forget; her beauty secret!
Read on to what this pretty actress has to say -
How did Ek Villain happen to you?
I think casting me for the character of Ek Villain was in accordance with the creative aspect of the director Mohit Suri, and once I heard the character narration everything just fell in place the right way.
After a long sabbatical you were seen on screen. How was the entire experience?
The entire experience was very satisfying, as it's not often that one gets to portray such a challenging role and the positive appreciation by the critics and my audience post the release of the movie has been the icing on the cake.
Talking about the cast and crew of Ek Villain how was your rapport with them?
Balaji Telefilms has always been home ground for me as my journey as an actor began with them, and I was very comfortable working with the entire team. I had an amazing experience working with Mohit Suri. As a director he is a dream to work with.
Audiences' for the first time have seen you in a character like Sulochana. What do you have to say regarding the same?
Frankly, when I first heard the character of Sulochana I was like, why me..? As it was in complete contrast to my on screen image. But when you want to evolve as an actor you really want to play characters that take the audiences' by surprise and that really make you feel content as an actor. The first day on the sets was really edgy for me as I had never spoken the kind of language that Sulochana spoke; but Mohit really helped me to work on the character and make it look as real and consistent as possible. Honestly playing the part of Sulochana has been the most overwhelming experience of my life as the kind of response it has garnered is something that has touched my heart.
Do you plan to come back to small screen or will prefer doing movies?
I feel with a lot of movie stars now doing television and vice versa, it's becoming more of one big media unit rather than two different entities and I would love to be a part of anything that really excites me as an actor.
What are your future plans regarding work?
I would definitely like to do more interesting roles as an actor and apart from that I am even diversifying myself and planning to setup my own production house soon.
What makes you look so beautiful even now on screen?
Well I try to be regular with my workouts and lead a healthy lifestyle and drink lots of water. Having fruits is a must and everyone should make it a part of their daily routine. Apart from your external self, I think what is most important is to keep your inner self happy as it really reflects on oneself ...so stay happy and be positive always.
Are you aware of what is happening in the television industry these days?
Yes absolutely! I am aware of what is happening, as it's really important to be abreast of everything that is happening around you as it really is an ever evolving industry.
There are many shows with social messages. Would you like to bag a role like this?
Well honestly after the release of Ek Villain, I got messages from women stating that they are going to stop nagging their husbands ... (laughs). Jokes apart, I feel that if I can play any role that can touch even a single life, I feel my job as an actor is accomplished.
Well Aamna, you truly are an inspiration to many when it comes to acting and projecting yourself as an actor on small as well as on the silver screen. TellyBuzz wishes you all the good luck and success for the future endeavors.
