You have become selective about your roles of late. How did you decide on doing Force 2?
I am very thankful to director Abhinay Deo and producer Vipul Shah sir for coming to me with a strong portrayal of a woman in their film. The first thing that excited me was the character -- she is a RAW agent and an alpha in herself; working in a man’s world and doing her job better than most men. She knows exactly what she is doing, for me that was the catch. She is strong and a role model for a lot of girls so I wanted to play this character. She works with John for a cause which is to protect the people. I was just sold on that.
Since you are new to the Force franchise, was there any pressure on you?
Force was a good and hit film and because of that our interest started building up as we would be a part of such a wonderful action franchise.
After Akira, this is your second action film in a row. Is this part of a plan?
It is just a coincidence that I have got two action films back to back. I loved both the roles and the two films and their style of action are different from each other. I like watching action films and acting in such films.
My roles in Force 2 is fantastic. It feels good when you have a larger-than-life role which gives a message that you are doing something for your country.
Tell us something about the song Rang laal in which not just John but you too are shown in an aggressive light.
Whenever I hear Rang laal, I get goose-bumps. It’s a very patriotic, emotional, touching song that every Indian will connect to. I hope that it inspires a lot of Indians.
