Kavita Tripathi: 'Shatranj' is a realistic film and I am glad I got an interesting role in it

Bollywood actress Kavita Tripathi, who was critically acclaimed for her role in ‘The Hundred Bucks’ will be seen in a thriller ‘Shatranj’. The actress will be working opposite actors like Hiten Tejwani, Hemant Padey, Ashutosh Kaushik , Pankaj Berry and Shahwar Ali. The film is touted to be an edge-of-the-seat thriller.

She said, “Today, there is a role for every talented actor, irrespective of his/her age. I am glad that filmmakers are thinking of interesting concepts. The new-gen filmmakers focus on content, quality and cast actors who suit the part. To a great extent, that’s also because the audience has evolved, owing to the exposure to desi and international platforms.”

She also adds, “Shatranj’ is an interesting film with a new concept and I am looking forward to working with the talented filmmaker Dushyant Pratap Singh. I have worked with him earlier in ‘The Hundred Bucks’ and there too I had a meaty role. In this film, the concept is based on how today’s system uses people and exploits them.”

Kavita is inspired by actresses like Vidya Balan, Tabu and Tapsee Pannu, who take up author-backed roles. She said, “I feel that it is high time women take up challenging roles than just play glamour dolls in it. I am happy that early on in my career I am getting to do interesting roles.”
