Sanjay leela Bhansali values good actors: Richa Chadda

Mumbai, Aug 17 : Bollywood actress Richa Chadda, who has worked in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Ram Leela", says the filmmaker values good actors.

The 28-year-old admits that she harboured dreams of working with the established director, and she feels fortunate to have been able to work with him so early in her career.

"It is fantastic. He is someone who is known for the kind of efforts he puts into each frame and I have always wanted to work with him. It is a childhood dream any actors will have. I am lucky that this dream came true so early in life," Richa told IANS.

"He values good actors, he is always up for an idea which excites him...he will go for it with his eyes closed as opposed to many people who will be rigid," she added.

In "Ram Leela", which also features Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, the actress plays the role of a woman, who is vulnerable yet strong.

"I am playing a slightly vulnerable yet strong woman. It is a role of a traditional woman. Everyone knows the story of 'Romeo and Juliet', so there will be fights. I am playing the role of peacemaker in the film," she said.

The actress, who was also seen in films like "Gangs of Wasseypur" and "Fukrey", says that Anurag Kashyap's directorial became the turning point in her career.

"'Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!' gave me respect and people liked my work. But it didn't translate into more work for me. I came in the radar of people, but that doesn't mean that I got more work. 'Gangs of Wasseypur' put me in some kind of zone where I myself was surprised that it can go so far," she said.
