“I was sceptical before coming here, but people here turned out to be very decent,” says actor Riya Sen who was in the city for the launch of a new collection of dress material. “My mother especially sent a bodyguard along with me, but it has been a good experience,” she said.
For a second time in the city after nine years, she said it was a good experience. The last time I was here for a show. She would love to do Punjabi movies, and had got two or three offers from Punjabi film producers, she said.
“Punjabi films are fun and people here are full of life. I will like to do Punjabi films, if I get the right script,” said the actor. “The Punjabi film industry is doing very well these days, and I will like to be part of it,” she said. Language doesn’t matter much when it comes to acting, as actors speak the language of the cinema, she added.
She is doing three movies, two Bengali and a Bollywood film, “My Idol”, the shooting for which is about to start. Riya said when she’s not doing any movies, she’s travelling. “I am also do gym and yoga for fitness. I also like to cook,” she says.
The actress said she is not interested in reality shows and wouldn’t appear for any such show. She is interested only in doing movies. She can think about doing a television series later, she says.
