If Sanchita Shetty has dolled up for her role in Tamil crime-comedy Soodhu Kavvum, she has shunned make-up in her upcoming Tamil horror-thriller Pizza 2: Villa.
"Since I played an imaginary character in Soodhu Kavvum, I got to wear a lot of colourful costumes and make up. However, it's the exact opposite in Pizza 2: Villa, in which I play a very responsible character and I'm mostly seen in salwar-kameez with no make-up," Sanchita told IANS.
Sanchita essayed Shalu, a manifestation of the hero's imagination in Soodhu Kavvum. In Deepan Chakravarthy-directed Pizza 2: Villa, she is paired with Ashok Selvan.
"It's a completely different role in Pizza 2: Villa. My performance in the film is very refined vis-a-vis my last film, where I could do anything I want because I was an imaginary character. It was challenging to change because people still call me Shalu whenever they see me outside," she added.
The transformation from a vivacious character to a reserved one was difficult, said Sanchita. "Firstly, there is a lot of expectation from the film because it carries the Pizza franchise. Secondly, with a role so different from my last one, I had to work very hard to pull it off in the film," she said.
