Actor Konkana Sen Sharma shared that she was thrilled when she got the opportunity to star in Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare. She believes the film gave her the ‘rare’ opportunity to play a flawed woman. In an interview to PTI, Konkana shared that she has never essayed a role “quite as bad*** as Dolly”. The movie also features Bhumi Pednekar. The story revolves around two cousins based in Greater Noida who, through their rise, fall, missteps and unlearning, enable each other to find freedom. The actress expressed her thoughts by saying that she felt ‘liberated’.
Konkana Sen Sharma talks about Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare:
She was quoted as, “I felt liberated from having to always play that perfect, strong woman who never makes any wrong decision. It was liberating to play a woman who is so ambiguous and sometimes taking some decisions, which are ambiguous as well.” Sharma further added, “There’s no struggle as such, but it’s an acknowledgement of such a juicy part. Of course, it would be amazing if one had a plethora of such roles to choose from, but unfortunately that’s not the case and I’m not surprised.”
Talking more about the demeanour that ‘Dolly’ carried in the film, Konkana said, “You’re used to that. Rarely you feel there’s something which is telling it as it is. It isn’t making any apologies, doing away with niceties. I loved that attitude, that ‘hey we are all adults, this is how it is. It doesn’t underestimate the viewer at all. I love Alankrita’s world, the way she inhabits and represents women…”
The actress reiterated the fact of liberation. She said, “I feel liberated as a woman, in the way I live my life. However, it’s not always reflected in the world around me. So I feel privileged but also isolated. “That’s why one is so pleased to have come across a space where people like Ekta have supported the film, Alankrita is writing films like these.”
The actress’ career spans for more than 20 years. In more than two decades, she has worked for movies like; Page 3, Life in a Metro, Wake Up! Sid, Omkara, and Luck By Chance.
