Guilty-fame Akansha hopes to work in films like Thappad
The actor also says she wants to work with filmmakers like Anubhav Sinha, Shakun Batra, and Luv Ranjan
Actor Akansha Ranjan Kapoor says she is utilising her lockdown days to catch up on some great films. Akansha, who garnered acclaim for her debut role in the recent digital film Guilty, wishes to be part of a film like Thappad.
"I am utilising this time that I am sitting home productively. I am one of those people who used to watch a lot of TV series rather than films, but now I have made a list of important films that I am watching to understand performance better. It is useful for me as an actor. I have watched The Platform, The Report, and Lady Bird," Akansha said.
Asked if there is any Bollywood film she has watched that made her feel like she would want to be a part of it, and Akansha replied, "Every time I watch a film, I feel like I want to do this one! I wish I could get a chance to play a character like this! Recently, when I watched Thappad, I was like 'I so want to play the part at Taapsee did'. I wish to be a part of that kind of films."
"When I watched Section 375 I was moved. I so wish to be part of a story like Udta Punjab. I want to work with Anubhav Sinha, Shakun Batra, and Luv Ranjan. All of them are so distinct in their style of storytelling, and I think working with them would help me grow as an actor," Akansha signed off.
