Actress Vishakha Singh, who plays a ghost in a forthcoming Tamil horror-thriller, describes it as the most exciting role of her career. She says it was emotionally as well physically taxing to essay the character.
“I don’t think this is my most challenging role. I had done a very emotionally challenging role of a freedom fighter in 2010 Hindi film ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’. I think the role in this new film has to be the most exciting till date,” Vishakha said.
Asked what makes the role of a ghost so exciting, she said: “For once, I did not have to look pretty. I didn’t have to worry about my hairstyle or my clothes or the make-up. I didn’t have to be all cute and try to be bubbly.
“I just had to explore another side of my personality. I have never scared anybody, I have never yelled at anybody, screamed at anybody. So, I decided to accept the challenge. It was fabulous to not play the damsel in distress.”
The film, which is directed by Mani Sharma, also stars Bharath Reddy and Meenakshi Dixit in the lead
