The 52-year-old actor says that
though most actors feel Nana is tough to work with, there are
very few in the film industry as helpful as him.
"Nana is extremely helpful. The climax of 'Tum Milo...'
was not easy to shoot, but it was Nana who almost co-directed
the scene with Kabir to see me through it. I completely dedicate
that scene to him.
"Nana has always been superb at his work, very focussed
and dedicated. I guess it is his theatre background that makes
him so, but I really admire him for his work," she said.
Another actor that Dimple feels happy working with is the evergreen
Rishi Kapoor, with whom she made her debut in 1973 film "Bobby".
At that time, she was just 16. Later, they were paired together
in films like "Saagar", "Pyaar Mein Twist"
and more recently "Luck By Chance".
"I've worked with Rishi on a couple of films. He has been
consistently good, he always had brilliant energy. But now,
my god, he is an atom bomb. I am so glad he is doing so much
work these days," said Dimple.
She will now be seen with Rishi in "Patiala House",
which also stars her son-in-law Akshay Kumar.
"'Patiala House' completely belongs to Rishi. I don't
have enough words to describe what a performance he has given
in that film. He is absolutely wonderful," Dimple said.
The actress says she doesn't do much in her free time and adds
that she isn't looking for any specific roles either.
"There is no role that I look forward to. I have done
enough and I am not dissatisfied with the body of work that
I have done. 'Sadma' (1983) was one film I was supposed to do,
but unfortunately Sridevi did it. That remains one role I wanted
to do but after seeing Sridevi, that desire died. She was too
good," she said.
So what is the reason behind her absence from the big screen
for long periods?
"I don't get too much work to begin with and whatever
I get is mostly not good enough," Dimple replied.
