Mumbai (IANS) Known for her works in ‘Bheed’, ‘Hush Hush’ and ‘Tandav’, among others, actress Kritika Kamra, who is all set to portray female gangster in ‘Bambai Meri Jaan’, talked about her diverse roles, and how she doesn’t likes to repeat herself on the screen.
Her latest endeavour, ‘Bambai Meri Jaan’, is a gripping crime web series, in which she takes on the challenging role of a female gangster for the first time onscreen. Her portrayal is set to add a unique dimension to the world of crime drama.
Talking about her diverse roles, Kritika said: “Each project has its own unique flavour, and I’m thrilled to bring these characters to life. I have consciously taken my time in choosing roles where I don’t repeat myself, because people tend to box you into a certain type of role.”
“I work hard to get opportunities to collaborate with makers who think out of the box. I have auditioned my way through to get shows across varied genres. On OTT, I have done a political drama, comedy, suspense thriller and now this – a crime drama. The next has an element of fantasy/mystery and the one after that is a period piece. It’s been a rewarding journey so far,” she added.
