I love being an outsider: Konkana Sen Sharma

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Actor-director Konkona Sen Sharma loves being an outsider in both Hindi and Bengali film industries.

The actress said the position of an outsider gave her a different perspective about things. "In both Kolkata and Mumbai film industries, I am an outsider and I love this position. It gives me a great perspective," Konkona told after the special screening of her directorial debut 'A Death In The Gunj'.

"I am not in the middle of things. I am not in the thick of things and I don't want to be. I am not interested in the industry trends," she added.

Asked if she had ever felt constrained as an actor to execute her vision and hence decided to take plunge into direction, Konkona said, "I would say there had been some film where I felt constrained. In other films, I felt this was really an opportunity to get to work in a great film. So I have all kinds (of films) and I don't feel restricted in my own acting career."

Konkana said, “I felt very strongly about this film (A Death In The Gunj). That's why this particular story came about," she said.

Konkana said she always believed in detaching herself from other aspects of filmmaking when onboard as an actor. "By and large one has to detach oneself from all the processes when one is acting. They have to respect the director's vision," she said.

Talking about her directorial venture, Konkana said it is difficult to make such films as the support is less from the industry and the audience. "If they do not come out and support different kind of films, how can we provide alternative content. It has to be supported by everyone, not just the director," she concluded.
