Anjana Sukhani of ‘Don Seenu’ fame says that she’d rather bide her time and take up offers that come her way She may not have had a meteoric rise in her career graph, but Anjana Sukhani says that she’d rather be like a slow and steady tortoise than make a quick impression and vanish just as soon.
"I agree that my growth as an actor has been rather slow, but I don’t want to kill myself thinking about it. I suppose that the reason is that I was not focusing on one industry at a time. I kept shuttling between Hindi and Southern films," says Anjana. Though the actor attributes her sluggish growth to logistical issues, she maintains that she has done some good work in the industry. "I won’t beg for work. I come from a non-filmy background and considering that, I think I have done a pretty decent job," she adds. But Lady Luck seems to be smiling upon Anjana now as she has three Hindi films in her kitty and a few more offers coming her way. "I have almost completed "Department". I am paired opposite Tollywood star RaNa in the film and I loved working with director Ram Gopal Varma. He is a genius and it was nice to work with an ensemble cast that comprises Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt." But ask her about the rumors that there was tension in the film unit when Anjana replaced Kangna Ranaut in the film and she is quick to defend herself. "I didn’t know that Kangna was in the film and I was clueless about any such controversy. But well, I am happy that I replaced her – Kangna’s loss is my gain," she says. That apart, Anjana is also busy with "Maximum", in which she teams up with the bad boy of B-town, Sonu Sood. "I have an interesting character in the Kabeer Kaushik film and it is shaping up well. I am also set to work on a film with Sanjay Dutt." Is it true that the actor is a part of the Hindi remake of her Telugu hit "Don Seenu?" "As of now, I only know that the remake rights of the film have been bought, but no one has approached me yet for the remake. Even if they do, I doubt if I would take up the offer as the plot is already revealed." Does that mean that she’d never work in a remake? "I’ll have to see about that," is all she says. Finally, does she have any Kannada film on the anvil? "I have worked with Golden Star Ganesh in “Maleyali Jotheyali" and I would love to be part of another project in Sandalwood," says Anjana.
