Shraddha Kapoor is a romantic at heart
Shraddha Kapoor, daughter of actor Shakti Kapoor believes in love and romance.
The actress who finally has a reason to smile, after her film Aashiqui 2 with the Bhatts got her noticed says: "I am very romantic as a person. I believe that love should be something mad and full of 'pagalpan'...It should be mad or it should not be there. I love romantic films. I hope I have a fairy tale romance."
Kapoor's first two films - Teen Patti and Luv Ka The End, sank without a trace, but Aashiqui 2 which arrived without much fanfare, and scored at the box office seems to have done the trick for the young actress.
"I always wanted to be a part of romantic films. There are lots of romantic films, which are my favourite like Pyasa, Devdas, Titanic and The Notebook. These are the ones which really stand out in my mind. Now there is Aashiqui 2 as well. I have a thing for mad passionate love stories," she said.
The initial failure did upset Shraddha, and she was quite "heart broken". "But then I understood that it is a part and parcel of the business. Successes and failures come and go and you have to brush it off," she added.
Currently shooting for Karan Johar's production venture Gori Tere Pyaar Mein (co starring Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor), the 24-year-old wants to be part of films which help her to connect with her fans.
"Even though Teen Patti didn't do well, people said nice things about me. I want to be a part of films where the story connects to the audience. I want to do good stories and work with good directors," she said.
What about projects with ensemble cast?
"It is not about the screen time that your role has, but what sort of an impact you can make. There are a lot of actors who may not have a lot of screen time, but their performances have been appreciated. So, if I get to be a part of stories which interest me, I would take it up," she said.
This young lass certainly has her head screwed on.
