Q&A with Anushka Sharma in relation to Matru ki Bijlee ka Mandola

Interview with Anushka Sharma on Matru ki Bijlee ka Mandola

Tell us about your character in the film
A: I play a strong headed, outspoken girl in the film. My character Bijlee is a rich, spoilt brat and is allowed to run wild in her village, which is practically owned by her millionaire father – Harry Mandola played by Pankaj Kapur. She is educated in the world’s best college and has traveled the world.”

Q: How do you think the film has turned out?
A: I think our film is very entertaining as it is like a dark comedy. I think it is Vishal sir’s most commercial project if I can say so. And also, the movie’s cast is exciting – there is Imran Khan, Pankaj Kapur, Shabana Azmi. He is one director who is known to bring out the best from actors.

Q: How was it working with Vishal Bhardwaj?
A: Vishal brings out the best in his actors. I really enjoyed working with him (Vishal). He is known for giving his heroines fully rounded characters with enough grey shades to make them real and interesting. But I can easily say the character of Bijlee is easily amongst his most complex heroines.

Q: Tell us about the title track of MKBKM
A: The song has been choreographed by Dinesh, who is from the South and is a National Award winner…I was just so excited to work with him.”

Q: How is it working with Imran Khan?
A: This is the first time that Imran and I are working together in a film. This is a fresh pairing. I never thought we would have such a different look in the film. I think Imran looks hot in this film!

Q: How did you play the role correctly?
A: We used to conduct readings with Sir's (Vishal Bharadwaj) assistance. He has a way of getting the actors under the skin of their character so the scenes turn out convincing.
