Modern Girl

 

ira-dubeyIra Dubey: I loved playing a modern, independent girl

On Dear Zindagi

The character I played was fantastic and I was very excited to do this film. My character, Fatima, is a modern, young, working, independent woman. A professional with a wry sense of humour, she is comfy in her own skin and easily balances work and family. To Kaira, she is the voice of reason and a confidant who teases, empathises and supports her in equal measure, leading to a friendship which is not just confined to the profession they are in but a lasting and solid one. It’s a character many will connect with, especially today’s modern girls who juggle personal and professional commitments.

On Gauri Shinde

At the helm of the big ship is our fabulous director, Gauri, a woman after my own heart. She has the grit of a tiger and the relaxed comfort only those under pressure seem to have mastered. She might laugh when she reads this but her positive energy was a signal to each and every one on her set, every day. She was always accessible and extremely encouraging to us actors. I loved English Vinglish and am very proud to be part of this project with her directing it.

On Alia Bhatt

Alia is one of the most gorgeous (always fresh as a daisy and looking like a million bucks, I don’t know how she does it!), committed and powerhouse actresses of this generation – a rare talent. As a person, she is grounded and warm, always focused on her work, prepared and ready to collaborate to make a scene or moment the best it can be. I was amazed every day by her energy, her conviction in her work, her fearlessness as an actor and her easy generosity and comfort with her co-actors.  She has all the qualities of a true-blue superstar.

Future projects

I have finished shooting for an independent film called Shehjar with Sunil Kumar Palwal and will soon be seen in a short film on YouTube with Saqib Saleem. I am also excited that my most recent release M Cream, a road trip story that has won several awards including Best Feature in Rhode Island last year, is available on Netflix.
