Shraddha Kapoor: Ups and downs are part of life

Shraddha Kapoor's last few releases, including 'OK Jaanu', 'Half Girlfriend' and 'Haseena Parkar', failed to elicit expected response. But the actress is not worried about failure and says ups and downs are part of life. She says her aim is to make everyone proud with her work. Shraddha began her Bollywood journey with films like "Teen Patti" and "Luv Ka The End", but made it big only with 'Aashiqui 2'. She followed it up with success of 'Ek Villain', 'ABCD 2', 'Haider' and 'Baaghi'.
"I think that my initial films did very very well, so anything that didn't match up to that will be viewed as falling short. I would love to say that the kind of love I still have received despite my movies doing well or not well is priceless," Shraddha said. "I think ups and downs are part of life, and I just hope that I keep on making people proud."
The daughter of actor Shakti Kapoor talked about her career when she came to inaugurate on Tuesday Bioscope Village -- a part of ongoing 48th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) here. Shraddha doesn't regret doing "Haseena Parkar" based on terrorist Dawood Ibrahim's sister Haseena Parkar. "I think you just want to try doing something different. Whether it does well or doesn't do well, it is not in your hand but I wanted to try something else," the actress said, adding that she is consciously picking different roles.
She is also excited for the multi-lingual action film "Saaho", which also stars Prabhas. Shraddha will also essay India's star shuttler Saina Nehwal in a Bollywood biopic. "In "Saaho', I will be talking in Hindi and Telugu. I am very excited. It is challenging, I am having so much fun." Talking about Nehwal biopic, she said: "I am practising a lot. Badminton is amazing. It makes you feel alive. Recently, I hurt my foot so there has been a break but I will resume soon."
