FilmyTown has an impromptu interview with Digangana Suryavanshi.
How was the experience of working with Govinda like?
It’s always a pleasure to work with supremely talented, and senior actors like Govinda ji. He’s a breeze to work with, and his upbeat energy is contagious.
What is the character you are playing in the The Battle of Bhima Koregaon?
My character in the film is that of a woman who breaks stereotypes back when women were considered to be inferior to men. The character is interesting with a lot of layers. The film has a strong social message about indiscrimination, and its always amazing to be part of films that deliver a strong social message.
How was it like working with Arjun Rampal, Krushna Abhishek, Sunny Leone, Milind Gunaji, and the rest of the cast?
The entire cast of The Battle of Bhima Koregaon is amazing to work with, and of course really talented. They all understand their characters on a deep level, and that creates a wonderful energy on the sets; it’s a pleasure to work with actors who take their work very seriously.
I look up to a lot of inspirational people, public figures and from regular life. I grew up admiring my parents- everything from the way they thought, what they did, to the way they conducted themselves, really moved and inspired me; I am what I am today because of them. I also grew up listening to Kishore da’s music (Kishore Kumar). He’s been an inspiration, not just as a human being, but also his work is legendary.
Are you open to web series or telly work?
Looking at working with good content, creative people. Daily soap requires everyday commitment which goes on for very long and I wouldn’t be able to manage films and web series then. So, I’m not looking at daily soaps right now although I love television.
The good natured Digangana Suryavanshi bids us adieu with a glowing smile.
