Vishakha Singh is in no hurry to sign films and fill up her kitty. Game for any genre, the actress would take up projects that would offer her meatier roles.


Active in Telugu and Tamil films, Vishakha also featured in Hindi films like "Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey", "Fukrey" and "Ankur Arora Murder Case".

"Post 'Fukrey', I have refused seven scripts. It's important to do what you completely believe in," Vishakha told IANS in an e-mail interaction.

"I am game for anything - from drama, comedy, to thriller, romance and family entertainer. I want to try my hands at everything. I want to focus on good scripts where I have a pivotal role," she added.

The actress is set to make her Malayalam debut with Rajesh Pillai's "Motorcycle Diaries" and says language is not a barrier anymore.

"The divide between the film industries is diminishing. I am comfortable in multiple languages. Once in a while, if good scripts like 'Motorcycle Diaries' in Malayalam or a romantic comedy 'ValebRaja' in Tamil comes my way, I will take them up," she said.

A self made person, the 26-year-old does not allow the fate of a film to affect her.

"I am not part of the rat race. At the end of the day, I know I did it on my own without a mentor, godfather or recommendations," Vishakha said.

"I have seen the lows of the career very early on and have come to the conclusion that a Friday can change everything. The only thing you can do is work hard, listen to your gut and be patient," she added.
