I don't think I have the luxury of being choosy as I need to work and earn a living. But still I do all this nonsense, asking the producer how many days it will take to shoot, where we will shoot etc., and a haan-naa keeps happening. But if the person is persuasive the film will happen, otherwise chances are slim.
I had been through a difficult patch since the last six years. I lost my right hand—my sister Simple (Kapadia), then I lost my brother and I lost Kakaji (Rajesh Khanna). All of them were very, very important part of my life. And I feel abandoned, truly abandoned. What keeps me going is when I see my mother.
If one were to describe Dimple Kapadia in one word it would be 'captivating'. And that's how she looks when you are ushered in for a chat with her on her upcoming release What The Fish. It's not easy to get an interview with the beautiful actress as she generally shuns any kind of Q and A. But when she does relent, Kapadia is refreshingly forthright. She rarely shies away from any question. A life that has been much chronicled — right from the time she had the audience under her spell with her debut in Bobby, a whirlwind marriage to superstar Rajesh Khanna, her comeback into films after a decade with Saagar and several award-winning films in her almost three-decade old career. If she played the typical Hindi film heroine in commercial films like Jaanbaaz and Allah Rakha, she also ushered in the new kind of woman on screen with Saagar, Rudali, Kaash, Being Cyrus etc.
Her upcoming film, What The Fish will see the intense actress trying her hand at comedy, where she plays as the 60 plus Sudha Mishra replete with specs, neck collar and a grim expression. She's quite tickled to be part of a comedy and can't wait to see the audience reaction to her film. In a freewheeling chat, the actress in her characteristic candidness opens up about her new film, her grandson, her daughter, son-in-law and more.
