I don't select my films as per their 'bold' quotient: Paoli Dam
The dusky girl is a known name in Tollywood with as she’s acted in films like Shob Charitro Kalponik and Kaalbela. CS caught up with her for a chat on films.
Tollywood vs Bollywood
There’s not much difference in terms of story-telling, however the budget and infrastructure in Mumbai is better. Recently, I had a great time working with the likes of Kay Kay Menon and Tisca Chopra. I don’t select my films as per their ‘bold’ quotient. I am an actor, so I play roles, which seem interesting and challenging. My friends, family and close ones appreciated my act in Hate Story.
I was fortunate to act in Rituparno Ghosh’s Shob Charitro Kalponik. It happened quite early in my career. I remember him doing my makeup, helping me drape the sari. He had a different kind of energy altogether. Rituda knew how to make a woman look good.
Films and me
Whenever I get free time, I watch Ritwik Ghatak’s films. I like to read as well. I love Rabindranath Tagore’s Bengali novels. Catching up with friends is also fun.
