Mallika Dua Says She Doesn’t Make Friends Easily

"Because, as actors we don't go to office everyday where we have the opportunity to form bonds with people over time. So, it's our project and our proximity during that project that gives us those friendships. "

Comedienne Mallika Dua says she doesn’t make too many friends, and is very particular when she forms a bond with someone.

“I don’t make too many friends and I am very particular about the friends that I make. But, some of the best friendships that I have in life are ones that I made through theatre or work,” Mallika said in a statement to IANS.

Mallika will soon be seen in bindass’ “The Trip 2”, which also stars Shweta Tripathi and Sapna Pabbi. The first season brought us a plot that revolved around four childhood friends who go on a road trip in Thailand to celebrate a bachelorette party. The journey, however, turns into an emotional roller-coaster for the girls.

Talking about bonding with her co-stars, she said: “I am eternally grateful for both ‘Trip’ season 1 and 2 because the kind of sisterhood and bonding that I have with Shweta, Sapna and Lisa (Haydon) and now Amyra Dastur is something that you don’t really get to experience.

“Because, as actors we don’t go to office everyday where we have the opportunity to form bonds with people over time. So, it’s our project and our proximity during that project that gives us those friendships. It’s been already few days since we wrapped but I miss them already especially Shweta.”

Shweta said: “Friend — just the word brings a smile to my face. They make our lives complete. The ‘Trip’ story started with a story of friends but none of us ever thought that we’ll become that close in our ‘real’ lives as well. We all are on each other’s instant dial now.”

The show will go live on all bindass platforms in September. (IANS)

Comedy is quite difficult to do: Nushrat.

Actress Nushrat Bharucha of “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” fame has some more comedy films coming up but says they’re not easy to do.

“Comedy actually is quite difficult to do. The timing, the tone, the delivery and the precise expressions are all very crucial, especially for actresses because we are not given the author-backed punches,” Nushrat  Bharucha told IANS.

“But I’m very comfortable with the comedy films that I have done because they have a certain premise and subtext. I have been playing catalyst sort of roles in the comedy films that I’ve been doing. I love what I do, I love what is being given to me, I am comfortable with it and I love the way it has been received,” added the “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety” actress.

Looking back at her Bollywood career, which started over a decade ago, she said: “If you come to think of it, it’s been a comical journey for me.”

“But both ‘Turram Khan’ and ‘Dream Girl’ are very different from the rom-com (romantic-comedy) films I’ve done in the past. Their treatments are different and even within the comedy genre, these films explore different sub-generes. ‘Turram Khan’ is a social comedy and ‘Dream Girl’ is a unique yet a hardcore commercial entertainer.”

There are a lot of genres that she really wants to do.

“I feel it’ll take time for everything to fall into place – whether it’s scripts, roles, characters or writing. So, I guess with time, I will do other genres,” she said. (IANS)
