MUMBAI: Actress Delnaaz Irani, who has been busy doing theatre for some time, recently did a cameo in the TV show Chhoti Sardarni.
Apart from this cameo, the actress hasn’t been seen on the small screen for a long time and she seems to have no plans to say ‘yes’ to every comedy show offered to her. In fact, the actress now wants to explore other genres.
Talking about it, she said, “Usually, people associate me with sweet, chubby, cute-looking girl roles but I want to break that image of being a bubbly and sweet actress. In fact, I’m tired of being labelled as a sweet actress. If I do comedy, it does not make me a lesser actor. I am an actress and can do a lot more than what people think of me. So, when I was offered this role, I grabbed it despite the fact that it was just a cameo. I wanted to show that I can be a part of something other than comedy. I can ace negative roles with ease too.”.
Delu, as she is fondly called by her friends, began her career with the show Commander on Doordarshan and went on to do several comic characters on television as well as in Bollywood.

Currently, she is focusing mainly on theatre. “I don’t want to rush into something just for the sake of doing TV. I am taking my time and looking for something that satiates the hunger of an actor.”, she added.
Talking about the current generation of actors, Delnaaz feels that they focus more on social media than enhancing their craft. “Social media plays a vital role in today’s world, as actors need to be active there to promote their projects. But what I don’t like about it is that even fools are making a name for themselves just on the basis of followers. They have no talent or body of work, but have millions of followers on social media.”, she signed off.
