'I have no illusion about my popularity'

Wednesday, October 05, 2016

Actress Soha Ali Khan says she has no illusion about her popularity and that there is a section of audience, which is more interested in content than a film's lead stars

Soha will be next seen in '31st October'. Also featuring Vir Das, the film is about how a family fights against the odds to survive the carnage inflicted on Sikhs after the assassination of late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

When asked about the film riding on her and Vir's shoulders, Soha told, “I have never seen (it) as a factor of worry. It's a responsibility certainly.

Sometimes people see the film on the basis of the popularity of the actor. I have no illusion about my popularity.”

“I think there are people who are also interested in content than hero or heroine. I feel the promo of the film tells the story. People will go to see the film
on the basis of the promo and not because of my face,” she said.

The drama-thriller, produced by Harry Sachdeva and directed by Shivaji Lotan Patil, is set for October 7 release.

“It's a difficult film to make and get it released. We have done good job with the trailer as it's gripping and is suspense. The 1984 riots is the backdrop of the story, but even if you are not born in that period it's ok as the story of (film) is about a family and their struggle to survive. Like Mani Ratnam's 'Bombay' had a backdrop, but it's about how a family survives.”

The 38-year-old actress said in this realistic film she has not done any make-up and tried to look real.

The film has released outside India and got good response. The 'Rang De Basanti' actress felt frustrated as it took time to release the film here.
