Minissha Lamba wooed everyone with her superwoman antics in HONEYMOON TRAVELS PVT LTD and her very commendable tango dance became the talking point of the film. The petite YAHAAN actress is now looking forward to 2008 as four of her films are lined up for release. Minissha gets candid in a freewheeling chat.

Lately we havenít seen too much of you onscreen.
I was just shooting all this while which is why you havenít seen much of me. One of my films DUS KAHANIYAAN has just released. I have four releases lined up next year. Samar Khanís SHOURYA where I get to play an investigative journalist, Sanjay Gadhviís KINDNAP where Iím playing a 19-year old girl, Ananth Mahadevanís ANAMIKA which has me as a simple girl who gets married in a rich household and Siddarth Anandís Untitled film which is a romantic comedy.

Tell us about DUS KAHANIYAAN?
My story is called POORANMASHI which is adapted from Kartar Singh Duggal's short story of the same name. Itís about a mother-daughter relationship and how one full moon night changes their life completely. I play a rustic village belle where pride, honour and virtue are top most qualities people abide by. Itís directed by Meghna Gulzar and I had a blast doing it. It was a fulfilling experience.

Is life looking up for you? Are you happy with the way things are shaping up?
I am extremely happy with the way my career is shaping up. I have chosen the films I have believed in and those I always wanted to be a part of. And if this means doing fewer films, so be it. I am proud of all the films Iíve done and God has been very kind and gracious. It has been a beautiful journey so far. I came from a non filmi background with no Godfather here in the industry. YAHAAN was my debut film and Iíve learnt a lot since then. But regardless of your lineage and stature, you have to go through the grind as no one has it easy here. I am eagerly awaiting 2008 and things are definitely looking up for me.

In hindsight, what do you think of ANTHONY KAUN HAI and ROCKY? ANTHONY KAUN HAI was a fantastic film but unfortunately because of its untimely release, it got sandwiched between two other films. That probably impacted its fate but Iím still glad I did it. ROCKY was an interesting experiment. It was going back to how films used to be made. I have absolutely no regrets doing both the films. I think both the films helped me evolve as an actor.

How do you zero in on a film?
I should enjoy reading the script and it has to be a story I believe in. My co-stars, banner and other issues are secondary. The script has to be invigorating enough to sustain my attention.

Is there a dream role on your wish list?

I want to do a full action film and a hardcore comedy film.

One actor youíd like to romance onscreen?
We have so many amazing actors. Itís extremely difficult to single out one. Iíd love to romance them all.

Lately there were reports about you getting cozy with Aftab Shivdasani at a Mumbai nightclub. Also, a lot was made out of your off-screen chemistry with HONEYMOON TRAVELSÖ co-star Abhay Deol.
I choose to be nonchalant. The fact is simple. If entertainment journalism thrives on gossip and hearsay, we donít have a way out. As an actor and a public figure, you are bound to be written and gossiped about. And if you canít handle it, you shouldnít be here.

What else is happening on the professional front?
I think itís just the right moment for me. Time is ripe for my filmi career. I am looking forward to a variety of roles.
