Sonia Singh has no qualms playing a vamp on TV
Sonia Singh, aka Richa of Colors’ Parichay, has been playing negative characters from the time she started her television career. However the lady has no qualms of playing a vamp too.
Ask her as to how did it all start, to which she quickly answers, “When I went for my first audition, they offered me a negative role. I think their offer came to me since I have curly hair that made me look like a vamp (laughs). From there, I kept on getting negative roles that I could never decline.”
Didn’t you ever feel the need to do a positive character? “I would love to do a positive character but will do it only when I am offered the main lead. I will never take up a character role,” she answers.
Actors who play negative roles are usually seen in bad light by the common man. Have you ever come across such an incident? “Yes, every time I go to a public place, people look at me like I would eat up their husbands. In fact, when I was doing this show called Hare Kaanch Ki Chudiya, an old lady caught me and asked, ‘use chod kyu nahi deti?’ It’s bad at times, but at least people recognize you as a negative character and then you know that you’ve played your part well.”
Aren’t you bored of playing negative roles? “Not at all, I have played different kinds of negative roles. So there is no point of me getting bored.”
