Pretty girl Minissha Lamba is currently working in light hearted flicks like HUM TUM AUR SHABANA and BHEJA FRY 2. While both these flicks are expected to be new age affairs, she doesn't mind being a part of conventional Bollywood movies. After having tasted success with commercial films like BACHNA AE HASEENO and HONEYMOON TRAVELS PVT LTD., she is open to picking up films that may be conventional but fun.
"I want to do films which reach out to maximum audience base. What's the point in doing good films that do get appreciated critically but don't quite reach the intended audience," questions Minissha. And if the reference point of her disappointment is WELL DONE ABBA which was recently even considered for being India's nomination for Oscars, she is not even making an attempt to hide it.
"It was very disappointing actually when the film didn't do well," says Minissha who had allowed a few projects to forego in order to concentrate on the satire by Shyam Benegal, "Whichever movie that you are a part of, you want it to do well. It could be the best or the tackiest movie of the year but you still want it do well because it is your baby."
In fact this is a stand that she has adopted not just for the films that she is passionate about from start to finish but also those where she may have realised sooner than later that it is not going in the intended direction.
"You never know what ends up clicking with the audience. In case one of your poorer films ends up working, you only feel disappointed that you didn't give your 100% to it. That's not something that I want," reasons Minissha.
Keep up the spirit girl and give your 100%. We are sure you would continue to show the spunk in HUM TUM AUR SHABANA as well as BHEJA FRY 2.
