The actor feels reassured to work with gifted filmmakers, says her five-year-old profession has had many “ups and downs”
It’s been 5 years since Mirzya (2016) launched and actor Saiyami Kher admits that her profession has “been a roller coaster ride with lots of ups and downs”.
“The downs have taught me a lot and made me a stronger person and actor. The highs make it all worth the wait,” says Kher, who “feels fortunate” to have gotten to work with quite a few gifted filmmakers.
Talking about what has modified since her debut, she shares, “The biggest change since my debut has been that earlier I would get bogged down by the lows but I now realise it’s a very important part of this beautiful journey. It feels reassuring when names such as Neeraj Pandey, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Anurag Kashyap, Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K and others show trust in my work. With every project you learn and grow. My attempt has always been to play a new character and try portraying the most honest version of that life. I love being on a film set and I’m trying to improve and grow with every project.”
Kher, who was final seen in one of many episodes of the anthology collection, Unpaused, will subsequent be seen within the Tiwary’s directorial, Faadu co-starring Pavail Gulati. The musical movie is Kher’s digital debut. “Right from her first film, Ashwiny ma’am has made a strong case for the female narrative in Bollywood. The uniqueness of Ashwiny’s films is that it conveys bold messages while staying within the purview of Indian culture. I have always been a fan of her work as in every story she leaves the audience with an afterthought and that is exactly what meaningful cinema should do.” Kher can even be seen R Balki’s upcoming sports activities drama movie, Ghoomer co-starring Abhishek Bachchan.
