Kangana Ranaut plays a no-nonsense cop in Dum Maro Dum.
Unlike her past roles, her rolein DMD will be sans glamor and sexuality. And the actress is pretty excited about it.
“The beauty of our profession is in being different characters and if a character requires me to take a break from the usual run-of-the-mill sexy roles, then so be it,” Kangana told in an interview.
Kangana also admitted that she tried her best and put in a lot of efforts in order not to look sexy in the film.
“And to be honest, not having to seduce men was fun.” she added. “In fact, I felt like a hero.”
Kangana isn’t scared about playing a non-glam role.
“I think it’s really interesting to not use your sexuality on-screen, and instead, let it simmer under your character’s mannerisms,” says Ranaut.
