Adah Sharma is a happy girl. If she would soon be seen as a 'call centre girl' next door in HUM HAI RAAHI CAR KE, there is another biggie HASEE TOH PHASEE in the making with none other than Sidharth Malhotra. For someone who started off as a tormented soul, well literally so, in 1920 and then continued the series as a psychic in PHHIR, it has been a notable turnaround for her.
"Surprisingly, when I did these films, I was much younger in real life but was asked to play a 22-23 year old. There was a lot of make-up put on me so as to give me a mature look," smiles Adah, "Today when I am doing my newer films; I am told again by people that I look like a 17 year old. Guess I will take that as a compliment."
Fortunately for Adah though, she is now getting to let her hair down.
"Well, technically speaking I have already let my hair down in 1920," laughs Adah, "Don't you remember my scary act there? But yes, it is fun doing some fun films now. Also, the characters that I am enacting now are much more similar to what I am in real life."
In the process, she is happy to break the stereotype, something that she was threatened with once she started getting similar roles.
"Yeah, all the roles that had started coming my way required me to play a psycho. Thankfully, I am moving on to someone chirpy now. In this industry where people wait for years before they start getting different roles, I have decided to grab whatever different genres that come my way. From horror, I have managed to move to comedy and romance. Hopefully there would soon be action coming my way as well," says Adah in an optimistic tone before signing off.
