Rasika dons 11 looks for her next?
Currently in buzz for her role as Safia Manto in Nandita Das' biographical drama with Nawazuddin Siddique based on the life of Sadat Hassan Manto, Rasika will now don not just one unique but 11 different looks for her next. While she comes from theatre background and is well versed with donning more than one character at a time, Rasika has now collaborated with a digital content firm, Culture Machine for a video in which she will be essaying 11 different characters. The video is conceptualised on the life of an actor in a week between Monday and Sunday and the different kind of people an actor meets. Rasika plays each of these characters and has a unique look for each of them. Previously on screen, we have seen actors like Kamal Hassan and Priyanka Chopra do the same on screen and now Rasika adds her name to the list. We can't wait to see what more is coming up from her.
Rasika says, “As actors we work with different people all the time. One of the things I have found most challenging about my job is to quickly adapt to the idiosyncrasies of everyone I work with. This video is a funny take on some of those interactions. God knows I needed to laugh about some of them! Also, I have been waiting to experiment with comedy on screen and it was super fun to do so vibrant team at culture machine. And how often does one get to play eleven different characters in one day! It was a treat for me!”
