Mrunal Thakur, who recently appeared in a cameo role in Kartik Aaryan’s ‘Dhamaka,’ says she would love to portray a sportsperson on the big screen.
She says, “In India, we don’t make as many films on female athletes as much as they deserve to be told and made. It is important because, through our films, aspiring athletes get encouragement and a whole new world opens up for them.
“I would personally love to essay a sportsperson on screen. To be ready for it, to train for it, it’s inspiring and also extremely challenging. Because you’re embodying a person so far off from whom you are. And it will be something for me that would give me a wholesome experience to prepare, play and to hopefully understand getting into the skin of a character that is so different from whom I’m as a person”.
Mrunal will next be seen in the family sports drama ‘Jersey,’ with Shahid Kapoor.
