Sridevi’s impressive career spans over five decades, and it’s probably right to say she is a perfectionist, considering the ‘Mom’ (2017) actress says she doesn’t believe in retakes.
Reported on NDTV, the ‘English Vinglish’ (2015) star shares in a recent interview with the PTI, why she always delivered her part in one take. “I don’t remember doing more than one take for a film. I think the first take is best as you are spontaneous and after that it becomes a mechanical thing. I don’t believe in second take at all.”
The ‘Judaai’ (1997) actress continued to add that having quality roles was an important element. “I feel lucky and I have to thank my writers, directors and producers for giving me great part’s to play on screen.”
As a mum to Kushi and Jhanvi Kapoor, being at home keeps her busy and is something she enjoys. “There is good quality of work around. I don’t want to do films just because I have to do it. I am already busy at home, I enjoy being at home. I have two daughters. If there is something out of the box and good then only I do it.”
Talking about her most recent film ‘Mom’ (2017), the actress reveals it was full of emotions. “The character hit me strongly. It is full of emotions, it is all about emotions and feeling them. I withdraw myself as an actor from everything on the sets. I did not plan to be aloof or not talk to anybody, its story did not allow me to do it.”
