Never want to be treated as a prop in a film: Shweta Tripathi

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

Her maiden feature film 'Masaan' made critics take note of her performance and actress Shweta Tripathi says she wants to stay away from "mindless" cinema where she is reduced to being looked upon as an object.

Shweta garnered rave reviews for the 2015 Neeraj Ghaywan film where she played the upper-caste lover of Vicky Kaushal's Dalit character. The actress finds the cinema of Zoya Akhtar "commercial, yet not insulting your intelligence", but does not understand mindless films.

"I don't watch the kind of cinema where people say 'leave your brain at home' and watch. What is even that? I would never want to be treated as a prop, to be looked on as an object just because of my gender. That I am very sure about," said Shweta.

"If I am doing something which is making a difference in the story then I'll do it. But not because I am wearing certain clothes and doing nothing," she added.

Though the National-Award-winning film 'Masaan' became her first big release, Shweta had previously worked in the short film 'Sujata', part of 'Shorts'- an anthology of five short films.

It was directed by Shlok Sharma, with whom she is now back with the latest 'Haraamkhor'. The film chronicles a relationship between a 14-year-old girl, played by Shweta and her tuition teacher, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, in a small town.

You have the love and support of your beloved and family to see you through.
