Ek Villain Returns actor Disha Patani: ‘Important for me that I like the character I play’

Disha Patani is back in theaters with Ek Villain Returns after a long hiatus; her last film was Radhe with Salman Khan. In the film, she flirts with shades of gray. This is her second project with filmmaker Mohit Suri, who previously directed her in Malang alongside Aditya Roy Kapur.

The actor says she enjoys working with Suri because he portrays female characters well. She says: ‘Mr Mohit always focuses more on women than men in his films. He’s a great director. I’m so lucky to have made two movies with him. I don’t think anyone else can present actresses like him.”

Disha has played a variety of roles throughout her seven-year journey in Bollywood, and thinks it’s only because the public is increasingly accepting. She says, “We create the content that people like. Everything depends on the box office collection at the end of the day, and that’s judged by our aam janta. So if there’s an acceptance for different roles played by female actors are played, things will change one hundred percent.

She also thinks that filmmakers have started to take female actors more seriously and she’s gotten such a plethora of roles because of that change. She says, “I’m just doing my job and I’m thankful I’m working. I don’t think about all those things, I just love doing my job and try to do something different every time.”

On creating space for herself as someone who didn’t have a Bollywood background to begin with, she says, ‘As I get older, I get to know myself better. When I started I was just very confused and had other priorities. Now, when I choose parts, I think differently. It’s not just about action, but it’s more about what I like to do. I follow my intuition. You can’t make movies thinking it’s going to be a big hit or not.”

The actor also emphasizes her need to relate to the roles she plays on screen. She says, “I look forward to big movies where I get to work with great creators, but I also look at what I’m doing in the movie, if I can identify with the character. It’s really important to me to be the character that I play like, or bond with, if I can’t empathize with my characters, the audience won’t either.”
