Surveen Chawla took the plunge from the small screen to cinema and it seems it didn�۪t take long for her to get typecast. After ��Hate Story 2�۪ (2014), Chawla has said she was only offered a certain kind of role and that�۪s why she didn�۪t sign a film.
Talking to Hindustan Times, Chawla divulged, ���People label you, and they don�۪t see what more you are capable of. Film-makers should see if actors fit their characters. Post Hate Story 2, everyone felt that since I have done a sensual role, they can give me similar ones. But, when people offer me a ��bold�۪ role, it flabbergasts me. Why don�۪t the makers look beyond, and see what the actor is capable of doing? After Hate Story 2, I was bombarded with ��bold and sexy�۪ roles. It got tiring, and that�۪s why I didn�۪t sign any Hindi movies. I don�۪t want to do films for the sake of it. I�۪d rather wait�.
She also spoke a bit about her journey, ���It�۪s sad that there is a huge gap between film and TV actors. You are looked down upon and called a ��TV actor�۪. People suggested that I shouldn�۪t mention such and such show [to filmmakers], but I didn�۪t want to hide my work�.
