Ayesha Kapur, the child actress in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Black’ (2005) is looking to come back on the cinema screen soon. Kapur, who was to star in Shekhar Kapur’s ‘Paani’ before it was shelved, is open to films and wants to experiment with genres and roles.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, Kapur, who is currently studying, said “I don’t want to limit myself to anything, so I am very open to all genres. I think that through films, actors have an opportunity to make a difference in the world — so that would be nice if the film had an important message/meaning. Not to say I’m not open to comedies and light-hearted films.”
She went onto say she would like to work with Shekhar Kapur and Amitabh Bachchan again, and how Bachchan and Bhansali have continued to be supportive of her throughout the years.
The actress also went onto to reminisce on some fond memories of ‘Black’ which celebrates 12 years this week. “I loved the entire experience—I think the most challenging part was actually leaving. I fell so deeply in love with acting that it was difficult to just get back to my daily routine. It was an unbelievable experience and I am so grateful for it. I think the most challenging part of the acting experience was to get the eye movement (the rolling of the eyes) right. It took a lot of training.”
