Actress Pooja Chopra attended promotional interview of her upcoming film ‘Aiyaary’ on Monday in Mumbai. During media interaction, Pooja sad that she don’t see herself as part of erotic thrillers.
Today in the age of cut throat competition, actors and actress are eager to find one opportunity to work in film industry be it in erotic thrillers genre but Pooja has different take on it, she said, “I want to every kind of role. It’s just the beginning for me but I just don’t see myself as part of erotic thrillers other than that, I want to really do everything. There are such talented actors in our industry right from Varun Dhawan, Tiger Shroff, Ranbir Kapoor to Shah Rukh Khan”
“It was my dream to win Miss India contest so I won Miss India East then Miss India, Miss World and did ‘Commando’ ‘Oouch’ and now ‘Aiyaary’ so it feels nice. I am not going to say it was a smooth journey. I will not say that I have done 2-3 films in a year and to do that wasn’t my dream also. I want to do one film for a year but it has to be good and which will connect with the audience so I have tried to do more of that”
Talking about her role in ‘Aiyaary’, Pooja said, “Captain Maya Semwal is like boy amongst the boy who leading a mission. She doesn’t have girliness in her personality. In fact, she is a leader so she has to be even stronger, alert and agile. She very strong, calculated and highly performance oriented which I haven’t experienced in my life but I worked really hard to play this character. We did our shoot with BSF soldiers so we used to observe their body-language and used to interact with them to know their mindset. I also trained like soldiers for this film”
Sharing her experience working with Manoj Bajpayee, Sidharth Malhotra and Neeraj Pandey in the film, Pooja said, “It was really lovely experience shooting this film. When you work with stalwarts in the industry like Neeraj Pandey or Manoj Bajpayee who has an amazing film career so when you work with them so, as an actor you get to learn so much from them “
“Since I have worked with Manoj sir in ‘Oouch’ so it was comparatively comfortable and Sidharth and me are of same age so we used to talk about Delhi, Bombay, food, exercise and movies”
When asked Pooja why ‘Aiyaary’ is special film in her career, Pooja said, “’Aiyaary’ is very special because it is with director with whom I always wanted to work. It is the character which doesn’t come to actor’s way easily especially for a girl to get such a performance driven role is not easy”
‘Aiyaary’ stars Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee, Pooja Chopra, Rakulpreet Singh, Anupam Kher and Naseeruddin Shah in lead roles.
It is scheduled to release on 16th February, 2018
