Parul Yadav, who became a popular name in Kannada film industry with Komal Kumar's Govindaya Namaha, believes in luck. Though she doesn't have a filmi background, she has earned a decent name in filmdom and is game for repeating the same magic in other film industries.
"If you're a daughter of a producer or a director, you don't have to worry about making a career in films. But when you're nobody, in that case only thing that can most likely fetch you a career in films is luck. The film industry is about 60 percent luck and 40 percent hard work," Parul told IANS.
"I'm sure there are far better looking and better performing actresses, but we don't see each and every one of them on the screen. It's the lucky few who make it to films and even manage to stick around," she added.
Parul's Tamil debut, romantic-drama Dreams was not successful but her subsequent release Govindaya Namaha went on to be one of biggest hits in the Kannada film industry. She is currently awaiting the release of Kannada revenge-drama Bachchan, which will release on April 12. Continue reading the news on the slideshow...
She claims, "I know it was a hard decision to make, but my producer was very particular that I dedicate myself completely to the project. I had to sacrifice about four films, but I don't regret it because I needed the time for the project to pull off the challenging role,"
The actress has played a possessive character called Anjali with shades of grey in Bachchan. Indeed, she will be seen as the childhood sweetheart of Kiccha. She adds, "I don't like anybody looking at him. I'm very rebellious. I also get to portray three different looks for the same character."
The film also features Tulip Joshi, Bhavana, Ravi Shankar, Ashish Vidyarthi and Pradeep Rawat.
Bachchan is directed by Shashank, while Uday Mehta has produced it. It has music by V Harikrishna. The film, coming out April 11, is currently in post-production phase.
