It’s a challenge to grab eyeballs in hero-centric films: Tamannaah Bhatia
Mumbai: South actress Tamannaah Bhatia, who will be seen opposite Ajay Devgn in `Himmatwala` and Akshay Kumar in a masala entertainer, finds it challenging to work with a superstar as you have to struggle to make your screen space felt in the movie.
Tamannaah is making her debut in Bollywood with Sajid Khan`s remake of the 1983 action movie `Himmatwala`.
"I think there are only advantages of working with a superstar... There are no disadvantages. The good point is lot of people will come and watch the film at least," Tamannaah said.
"There is an opportunity to show your talent and then people can have their opinion whether they liked the film or you or not," she added.
On typical Bollywood masala films riding on heroes and heroines being used as an accessory, she said, "I feel for an actress commercial films are bigger challenge than a film where there is a title role for them... When you have a limited role in the film to captivate the audience, it’s important."
"The job of the actor is to perform better and to attract audience even in that short span of your screen presence. It becomes more challenging as there are fewer scenes," she said.
Tamannaah feels one must keep in mind the likes and dislikes of audience while choosing a film.
"The combination of me enjoying the film is also important. Like if I am doing a film just for the heck of the role and people are not enjoying it then the purpose is defeated. The purpose should be people must see and enjoy it that is the reason we do films.
"When `Himmatwala` came my way I was sure it will be super entertaining as it had Sajid Khan and Ajay Devgn. They both have been consistent with their films as people have liked their films," Tamannaah said.
"At the end of it, films are a team work. A good film will be churned out when people on board are good and work together," she said.
The film directed by Sajid Khan will release on March 29.
The 23-year-old is all praise for her co-star Ajay.
"He is an honest human being, beyond all the honesty and fan following his honesty reflects on screen. As an audience I relate to him on that level," she said.
