Adah is fine with ugly looks, supernatural thrillers
Mumbai: Actress Adah Sharma, who shot to fame with her debut in Vikram Bhatt`s `1920` would now be seen in `Phhir`, yet another suspense thriller from the same camp, but has no qualms looking ugly and attempting supernatural movies in the initial stages of her career.
Adah made her debut in the 2008 horror film, which revolved around a married couple living in a haunted house in the year 1920. The film starred newbies Rajneesh Duggal and Adah Sharma as the married couple. Now, she would be essaying a clairvoyant in Bhatt`s upcoming film.
"I was sure that I wanted to start with a movie that would focus on me and that I get a fantastic role. Sometimes, there are people in the industry for ten years and they don`t get to show any scope for performance...and I think without having a filmi backing I got to do that in my first film so whether it was supernatural or thriller or comedy did not matter to me," Adah told.
On the risk of restricting herself to this genre and getting typecast, Adah said, "I did not think much about all this. I don`t think these days people block their minds and say that this girl did horror film and cannot look beautiful."
"A lot of people said that I will never get to play a pretty girl or happy character. But today I am endorsing lot of big brands like `Nokia` with Sharman Joshi then `Limca` and `Parachute` who have signed me for two years and also `Olay`," she said.
The 22-year-old actress says her debut film, `1920` had changed the perception of the industry people.
"I remember for `1920`, Vikram Sir had asked if I was fine looking ugly and I said ok. I even told him I am ready to look old. Industry people got to know that I am fine experimenting with looks...black spots or whatever I am ready to do it," Adah said.
