Soha wants to be wicked and funny on screen

Her sweet and delicate presence in her last release “Ahista Ahista” was built on her image of an unspoilt beauty in pursuit of life’s mysteries, but Soha Ali Khan is keen to change that by doing funny and dark roles.

“‘Ahista Ahista’ was the first film to feature me as ‘the heroine’. So far I’ve been part of ensemble casts like ‘Rang De Basanti’ and ‘Pyaar Mein Twist’. Yeah, I agree films like ‘Antarmahal’, ‘Rang De Basanti’ and ‘Ahista Ahista’ have had me play timid characters, though I’m not the least like that in real life. I’d like to do something funny and maybe something a little dark,” Soha, whose “Khoya Khoya Chand” was released Friday, told IANS.

“I think I’ve been vulnerable often enough on screen. Now I’d like to tap other aspects of my personality. That opportunity to play a darker character than the characters I generally play would occur in Sudhir Mishra’s ‘Khoya Khoya Chand’. I want to do something that would make people laugh. In real life I’ve a lot of self-confidence and I think I’ve a sense of humour.”
