Sarita Choudhury, who is best known for her role in Meera Nair's 1996 film, KAMA SUTRA is all set to star in a Bollywood film after a long hiatus. She'll be seen in Sona Jain's FOR REAL, in which she's playing a mother of two. The film releases on September 17.

The actress is pretty comfortable about people remembering her as the KAMA SUTRA girl. "I'm cool with the 'KAMA SUTRA girl' tag. I don't mind it. But it's not who I am now. I don't regret doing KAMA SUTRA. When I did it, it was so much fun," she declares.

Speaking about why she chose FOR REAL for her comeback, Sarita says, "The script which Sona sent me was amazing. I knew this was the way to do something Indian that fit who I was. And I thought 'All right, this is my beginning to go back to Bollywood'."

The actress is not worried about the film's release. "We have worked so hard that I'm not nervous anymore. I'm ready. It has done very well at the festivals. Let's see what happens here," she stated.


Having worked in a lot of international films, does Sarita find any differences in the way Bollywood functions? "If you would have asked me 10 years ago, I would have said that there are so many differences. But I'm so intrigued right now with what's going on in parallel cinema here. It's so similar to what's going on in New York; good stories, people trying to do things without a lot of money. It's really good stuff. I'm finding the differences are less. And I like that," affirms Sarita.

So does Sarita want to act in a mainstream commercial Bollywood film? "Secretly I do. But I don't know if I'm fit for that. I want to run around trees, sing, bat my eyes. There's always a part of a girl who wants to do that," she said on a concluding note.

Well, we hope our directors are listening!
