The actor reveals that when people meet her, they realise how different she is off-screen. “They think I have a great sense of humour, but they’ve only seen me in serious, women-centric roles,” she says. One has to wonder: has she missed out on masala films in Bollywood because of her image? “I am sure I have because they have never even come to me,” she says.
But how sure is she of stepping into an uncharted territory? Chatterjee says, “I love taking up strong roles and characters which allow me to take risks. Sometimes they are fantastic and sometimes I fail, but that’s how you learn and grow, otherwise it becomes monotonous.”
