Actress Divya Dutt enjoyed playing the antagonist in her upcoming film “Irada” but says she felt out of her comfort zone.”I was not at all comfortable doing a negative role. But I had a lot of fun playing the character. I have not played the role of antagonist often, so this time I had a chance to dig my teeth deep into the character,” she The story of the film has been co-written by debutante director Aparnaa Singh and Anushka Rajan.
“The real fun about playing such roles is that they are very layered. So, I get to play a lot on the text and subtext of the character. I hope I have justified myself as an actor in this role,” said Divya. The actress also praised co-star Arshad Warsi.”He is one of the most nuanced actors we have today and I had a blast shooting with him.”
The film also stars veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi, Sagarika Ghatke and Sharad Kelkar in key roles.
The film releases this Friday.
