Ever since the KHAMOSHIYAN trailer released, B-town has been going gaga over it! ‘24' fame actress Sapna Pabbi has been grabbing eyeballs for her ‘negative' portrayal in the upcoming film. She plays the character of Meera, a mysterious woman, who runs a guest house of her husband and has lots of secrets to unravel.
KHAMOSHIYAN being her debut step in Bollywood, we wonder what made her take up a character with grey shades. Sapna explicates, “Firstly, I believe you really can't slot it as negative. There are so many different emotions and shades that you can't categorize. Secondly, whenever & whatever roles are given to you, as actors you want to do it best and bring out the best. I wasn't skeptical about it for a bit. I pretty much knew about the grey shades in my character, bold scenes and I was ready to do it.”
But ask about her comfort level in doing intimate scenes on-screen and she shares, “Obviously I was nervous like any girl would be because intimacy is something which you don't present in front of so many people. It's a private thing. But, thankfully I had wonderful team and amazing co-stars like Gurmeet and Ali. Also, my director Karan Darra was so supportive and understanding. I had a blast shooting for this film.”
The way Sapna's character is depicted in KHAMOSHIYAN, it quite harks us back to Bipasha's character in JISM, where she played a negative role, right at the beginning of her career . Bring this to Sapna's notice and she says, “Bipasha's success is commendable. JISM was a great film but there is enough depthness and layers to my character. It's a complex character and it's more than being just erotic. Though it was challenging to do, it wasn't difficult. I hope I create my own space.”

Women have an edge over their male counterparts in the movies made under Bhatt camp. However, Sapna has her own stand on it. “I think all the actresses (Jacqueline, Bipasha, Esha, etc) who started from this banner (Vishesh Films) have done exceedingly well in their career. The heroines here are not just for erotica. Yes a lot of people say that Bhatts' heroines are sexy and bold, but they like a specific genre and because they do well in that particular genre they have a great place in the industry. They make films which they believe in. So what's wrong about it?” saying this Sapna adds to it, “I think guys like Randeep, Emraan have done equally good in this camp. I haven't outshined in KHAMOSHIYAN.”
As her character in the film is very secretive, probe Sapna if she also shares a similar trait and she quips, “No I am very blunt and can't be secretive. I believe in honesty and speak my mind all the time.”
Also starring Gurmeet Chaudhry, Ali Fazal, KHAMOSHIYAN, directed by Karan Darra, is all set to hit the screens on January 30, 2014.
