Ruhi Singh : I was not happy with glamorous roles


Ruhi Singh spill the beans over what’s been going on and how is she feeling after her Bang Baang debut. Ruhi says – “I am pretty excited. Actually I have been watching Bang Baang since the night it was released online. A bit nervous as well because the show has been really talked about and fans are going crazy on social media. It’s a really good feeling. Also, seeing myself in a cop avatar was pretty cool because I have loved action always and I always wanted to play an action hero. So this web series gave me a platform to showcase my talent and martial arts skills that I have been trained in. So yeah, it feels good.”

When asked if she would call herself the next action star. Ruhi Singh replies – “I just hope people like my action. And I would totally love to do more action oriented films and web series. And if people are calling me the next action star, then I would be so happy and totally embrace that.”

Talking about what roles is she getting since then. Ruhi Singh says – “When I made my Bollywood debut with Calendar Girls, I was only getting glamourous roles. And I wasn’t very happy with it. There was not much of a difference for me be it in the script or the plot. I wanted to do powerful roles which will make an impact. And that’s why I am here. So I decided that whatever I do next, it has to be a kickass character or I will rather not do it.”

Sharing her experience of working with Ekta Kapoor, Ruhi Singh says – “It was fantastic. And I think it is high time we have more female superheroes. I think it will start a new era with Bang Baang because of the kind of work that I have done. And Ekta Kapoor is such a powerful woman, she is an idol to lots of girls who look up to her. Since we were shooting during the Covid-19 times, we used to speak in the beginning on the Zoom calls. And she was there to guide us. She’s a fantastic person and I really look up to her.”
