Mrunal Thakur, who will star alongside Shahid Kapoor in the cricket drama ‘Jersey,’ believes that being typecast in the profession should be the last thing on an actor’s mind.
For her, script selection is based on how relatable or engaging a role is, the character’s skills, and, most importantly, the story being told.
Mrunal said: “For an actor to be cast in films with a great script and a great team backing it is of utmost importance. I don’t fear being typecast because I know as an actor what and how I can differentiate the roles I’m essaying.”
She explained: “I personally think that to play a similar character can actually pose a good challenge for me, because then it’s my calibre as an actor to bring something fresh to the screen.”
