I took up a lot of projects that never materialised: Swati Kapoor

Swati Kapoor
The confident looking Swati Kapoor has been aiming to get into films of late. Yes the actress, who made her television debut with Kaali and went on act in Colors’ Hamari Saas Leela, opted out of TV soon after that. After going through the struggling phase a little, the actress managed to bag a Punjabi and a Bollywood flick. While the Punjabi film is titled Mr & Mrs 420, the Hindi flick is titled Fuddu. In a conversation with Tellychakkar.com, Swati talks about how her source of extra pocket money actually turned into her profession and then passion. Read on…. How has your journey from television to films been? “Quiet interesting, my first show Kaali too had known faces like Ashutosh Rana. Thus it was a very big thing for me to start with. Later I went on to take a break from TV as I wanted to try my luck in films. And I was lucky enough to bag this movie called Fuddu,” avers Swati. “Though Fuddu is an adult comedy, but it does not get vulgar in any situation. Thus one can watch it with his or her family. I did not opt for a love story because I know that a love story works only when there is a known name involved or a big banner,” reveals the actress. Interestingly, acting was never on cards for this pretty lady. “I had never thought that I’ll be an actor; it just happened by fluke. I remember auditioning for Kaali to earn some extra pocket money as I was still in college. My actual plan was to do my MBA, but then things changed post Kaali as I started liking acting,” Swati observes. You’ve also bagged a Punjabi film? “You are right. The film, in which I am paired opposite Yuvraj Hans, will release in March next year,” she quips. The actress learnt a lot in her journey from TV to films, as she goes on to narrate, “There was a lot to learn before I moved out from TV. I took up a lot of projects that never materialised; in fact, we shot for some but they never went on air. All of that taught me that the projects we bag and also the ones we reject count a lot,” she observes. Swati is also finding it hard to adjust with the film format where the story revolves around a male artiste. “In TV, a pattern has been set where shows are based around the female protagonist. Thus when in films, the story is around the male artiste, I find it difficult to adjust,” Swati informs. On her plans of getting back to TV, she states, “Since TV consumes a lot of time, I wouldn’t really get the opportunity of working in films if I get back to TV at this juncture. Thus I will be focusing on films for some time and if that does not work I shall get back to TV.” We wish you all the luck Swati!!!
