From the kind of work I come from, I have done serious roles in the past, I have done workshops under Piyush Mishra and have taken training under numerous NSD (National School of Drama) artists, I would like to show my acting skills a lot more.

"So definitely something serious like a 'Masaan' maybe balance it out with a commercial film," Shraddha said.

About doing a sex comedy like "Great Grand Masti" after these genres, she said: "I knew that this is the kind of film that will get me to the masses, which would get me the popularity that I need and opens up several avenues for an actor.

"In the 3-4 films that I have done, I feel that I have done different kind of characters. For me, 'Great Grand Masti' is a commercial film and the best way to reach a larger range of audience."
