RANN is a film dominated by men and Gul is one of the few female cast members in the film. One asks her if she could have demanded a little more prominence in the promotional plans of RANN? Though one is not searching for any glamour quotient in this drama around media and politics, one has all the right reasons to believe that her presence in RANN wouldn't be a mere prop.

Also, leaving aside the crowd that is dominating RANN, the fact is that there is sheer worth, might, seniority, charisma, screen presence, following and last but not the least - power of another actor who is at the centre of affairs. The man in picture is a living legend like Amitabh Bachchan, who is getting some of the most challenging roles to enact on this side of his career (remember PAA?). Doesn't this relegate practically anyone and everyone as a 'supporting actor', especially so when the man is directed by Ram Gopal Varma who is responsible for making two landmark films with him - SARKAR and SARKAR RAJ (AAG notwithstanding)?

"You are talking about a few shots of mine in the promos. On the contrary I would say that even if an actor gets just one or two scenes in a film which promises to be well made, one should just do it", says Gul who, despite no major box office success behind her, is at least considered to be a reliable actor. "The idea is not to be worried about the length of the role or for that matter how much mileage you can make before the release of the film. Yes, RANN is a film about men but having said that, someone like Ramu won't cast me in a role which won't be remembered after the show commences."
