ACTRESS Amruta Khanvilkar, who has featured in a mix of Marathi and Hindi movies, says the success of her latest project Raazi has opened up a lot of opportunities for her. In Raazi, a spy thriller, Amruta plays sister-in-law to the lead character essayed by Alia Bhatt. She has also appeared in the web series Damaged.

“I think Raazi has opened a door for me to explore different mediums. As an actor, I want to work everywhere and language and medium should not be a barrier. We shot the web series actually 15 months ago but before the web show goes online, Raazi released and that has changed a lot of things,” she told IANS.

“I have been working in the industry for quite some time, but I think now all the right things are happening in the right manner. I have gained a certain amount of visibility among the national audience. I am glad.” She feels that while Raazi had a focus on Alia’s role, “everyone’s characters were wellwritten and so all the supporting cast members got equal visibility and importance”. Sharing an insight of her character in Hungama Play’s Damaged, she said:

“I am playing a serial killer and you will get to know that with the 10 minutes of the first episode. The story unfolds how and why she becomes like that... So there is a strong back story that sets the journey of the character. I found this role really challenging to perform. “I am playing a woman who is bold, seductive, who allures men and takes their money... play a mind game and kill. Yes, all things negative, but for a reason,” added Amruta, who is also a good dancer and won a season of reality show Nach Baliye.

Asked if she is more interested in Bollywood films rather than regional cinema, she said: “I do not want to limit myself. If tomorrow I am offered an international film, I will do that. I see no reason to say no to any good role.”
