Mrunal Thakur: Bollywood directors regret not seeing my real potential

Mrunal Thakur made an impact on the big screen despite having a small role in movies like Toofan and Super 30. Cinephiles predicted that she would eventually receive a Bollywood offering deserving of her talent. The venture that gave Thakur his big break, nevertheless, was a Telugu film.

According to Thakur, who recently had chats with filmmakers in the wake of the positive reviews Sita Ramam, which stars Dulquer Salmaan, received, "They told me they were fond of my work and apologised for the fact that Hindi cinema didn't provide me a sufficient platform to demonstrate my talent."

She continues by saying that Bollywood directors regret not realising her full potential and that they now understand that she is "capable of creating legendary characters as well."

Since the release in August, she claims, film offers have been coming in. But I want to play characters who are just as well-known as Sita.I remind myself to focus on each day as it comes. My decisions will be influenced by how I feel about a part, not by how well it is received.

Mrunal Thakur on Doing Sita Ramam

She considers herself fortunate to have landed a traditional love story in a period when moviemakers have focused on genres like action, humour, and drama. "Classic love stories aren't often produced in our day and age. Since when have we seen a film about two people who are wildly in love? Shah Rukh Khan sir's flicks come to mind alone. I'm glad Sita Ramam provides a breath of fresh air in an era when visual effects-heavy movies predominate in theatres," said Mrunal.
