JAI VEERU may have come and gone but for Anjana Sukhani, it did help in getting some recognition coming her way. The pretty face met with some good appreciation, especially in her song and dance number, and though the film saw a premature end at theaters, Anjana is glad that finally people were able to see her in a conventional Bollywood setup.
''Come to think of it, I was one of the six actresses in SALAAM E ISHQ and it didn't help me to an extent that I had imagined. GOLMAAL RETURNS too was a conscious call on my part and while the film was a success, I knew from beginning that which of the actresses had the meatier part. In this aspect, I at least had some decent footage in JAI VEERU and I am happy that those who saw the film did compliment that I looked refreshing in my songs with Kunal (Khemu)'', says Anjana who will next be seen in JASHN followed by TUM MILO TOH SAHI and ALLAH KE BANDE.
Tell her that she has a versatile face and she nods in agreement, ''Yes, in fact the cameramen who have worked with me in films and photo shoots have also said the same. The other day Balki sir (of CHEENI KUM fame) was also telling me that I looked different every time he saw me. It's a wonderful feeling in fact.''
Ask her about the kind of look that she prefers and she says that she would want to take the middle of the road approach. However, she agrees that her heart is set out on being seen as a girl next door.
''Frankly, given a choice, I like being a girl next door'', she smiles, ''But then I am in a glamour industry so one needs to have a balanced view of things. I could also turn into a hot chick as per the situation. My job is to look pretty and act decently and I am making sure that I come up trumps on both the counts in my upcoming films.''
