While her older daughter, Shruti Haasan, is among the more sought after stars from the younger lot in Bollywood, Sarika is a veteran actress who has many laurels to her credit.
She was recently in Mumbai to interact with the young students of National College at the Manhattan Short India Master Class Series and was asked by one of the students if she would consider being locked up in the Bigg Boss house.
Pat came her reply – “I’ll do it if they lock Naseeruddin Shah, Nana Patekar, Irrfan Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Anurag Kashyap, Seema Biswas and Tabu as well. Yes, then I would go in. That is so exciting!”
Sarika also waxed eloquent on the fact that most Bollywood item numbers are far more sexually tame these days than they were in the good old days.
Said Sarika to the students, “Go to YouTube and search for songs like Hungama Ho Gaya with Bindu or a Padma Khanna song. The camera is only on two places. And the camera had this very vulgar movement. They would zoom in and out and in and out, just at those two places. I would rather see Deepika looking so sensual and so sexy than seeing that camera movement. Things are much better now!”
That coming from a senior actress is a pat on the back for the Bollywood film makers today.
