Renuka Shahane is never seen on the massive display screen, however when she does, she makes certain her roles takes the centre stage. The 56-year-old, who just lately portrayed the function of Vicky Kaushal’s mom in Govinda Naam Mera tells us that she is certainly “very picky” in the case of acting on the silver display screen, as she is right here to make a distinction.
“The fact is that whatever roles are offered to me, I do want them to make a difference in the script. It’s not the length that actually decides (if I’ll do the film), but the fact that whether the film can be made or not without that character. It has to be consequential to either the plot or the character that arcs on the emotions. In that sense, yes, I’m choosy,” she confesses.
Shedding mild on different components that depend, Shahane provides that it additionally is determined by the folks she likes to collaborate with. “You spend so much time and invest so much on a particular subject and if it doesn’t see the light of day then you feel shattered. So, whoever you are working with has to see the project through,” says the actor, including that she doesn’t pay a lot heed to issues like which manufacturing home or banner is backing the movie.
However, one factor that the Tribhanga director continues to be not in a position to wrap her head round is the audition course of, and as an alternative, she prefers frequent interactions with the administrators that finally assist in bagging and understanding the function.
“For me, as an actor, it’s very important to build a character. And that evolves through discussions with directors and then you get to a certain point, which doesn’t really happen during an audition. They (auditions) are very raw and too many things are not told about the character. Directors are not even there to direct you. I just feel it is a cold way of doing things,” says Shahane.
Citing an instance of working with director Shashank Khaitan on her newest net movie, the actor asserts, “Shashank did take my reading, and it wasn’t an audition as such. But, he wanted me to read out the script with my input. The moment he tells me what he wants, it’s easier for me to build the character, emote and give what is expected of me.”
Shahane will subsequent be seen in Chakda ‘Xpress with Anushka Sharma. Talking further on the process of auditions, she reveals that she met film’s director Prosit Roy a few instances earlier than even going to the purpose of look take a look at.
“I had conversations and we were talking about the character, and it really helps. So, when you go on the set, it is easier to get into the skin of the character. Whereas, in auditions, you get half-baked knowledge which is not satisfying. That’s the reason why I have not cracked them yet,” she concludes.
