Who isn’t aware of who Archana Puran Singh is? At least no Bollywood buff and comedy admirer can stay mum in response to this question. Archana Puran Singh is one of the finest and very experienced actors of Bollywood Film Industry. Apart from this is also known for her charming presence in Kapil Sharma’s popular comedy celebrity interview chat show The Kapil Sharma Show.
People really love Archana for how politely she takes jokes on herself. Not only in the Kapil Sharma Show, but in Bollywood also, she has been associated with comedy roles for a long time. But now, our favourite Ms Briganza feels she needs opportunities to flaunt her talent in better ways.
Recently in an interview with The Indian Express, Archana Puran Singh opened up about the popular role of Ms Briganza and also went on to ask film directors and producers for work.
While talking about her role as Ms Briganza in superhit movie Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Archana said, “That chhaap (image) is so solid. Also, a lot of people feel that what should they offer me after Ms Briganza. It’s been almost 25 years since Kuch Kuch Hota Hai released. And the character is still following me. People also feel that I am best suited only for comedy. As an actor, I feel deprived, cheated and I have been left yearning for good roles.”
She also went on to quote the example of Neena Gupta who bravely asked for work through a post on social media. “They say if you keep getting the same roles, it means you are very lucky, that people want to keep watching you. However, I feel it’s the death of an actor. I remember Neena Gupta had once posted on social media seeking work, I guess I will take this opportunity to ask for work from directors and producers”, said Archana in the interview.
Archana Puran Singh surely is a gem in the field of acting as she has proved her skills in popular movies like Raja Hindustani, Mohabbatein, Krrish and many more. Her fans would surely love to see her act in more versatile roles in more Bollywood movies.
