Tellychakkar recently got in touch with the actress and got to know some interesting insights.
What do you think about before you choose a script? Is there some sort of checklist?
“I do have a checklist. There are a few things on it and even if 3-4 things are ticked off, I’ll be happy to take up the project. The first thing is that nothing inappropriate is being glorified through my character which can offend people. Obviously there can be different opinions from different people. The second thing that matters is the director and the people I’ll be working with. Apart from this, the script matters a lot. Lastly, how much money is being offered also plays a role.”
Does the screen time matter to you?
“I think I am a slightly greedy actor when it comes to screen-time. I have been upfront about it. Of course I would not let go of opportunities that would take me somewhere but yes, it does matter to me a lot of times.”
Do you sometimes get scared when you are breaking the stereotypical roles you have been put in? Do you feel the pressure when you try something new?
“No, I actually get very happy and excited when someone tells me that it is a very different role. I am of course nervous but it’s a happy kind of nervous that I am getting to do something different. I was doing these girl next door type of roles and then when I got the role of a farmer; I got very excited because it was something I had never done before.”
The third season of College Romance is set to release soon and Apoorva Arora is one of the actors who are immensely loved by the audience.
