Diana Penty

Mumbai, Sep 12: Actress Diana Penty says she is least bothered about the screen time or the length of the character but the impact of it in the film.

She is playing strong character in the upcoming film “Lucknow Central”.

She also says, “No, if the role is powerful, screen timing doesn’t bother me… that becomes secondary then. I always think about the impact of the character in the film, after liking the story. For instance, in ‘Lucknow Central’, I am playing a strong headed woman in the men’s world.”

About her character, she said: “My character Gayetri Kashyp works for an NGO who helps prisoners to reintegrate into society and coming back to normal life once they come out of jail. The character is interesting because she is the woman working inside the prison; which is a male dominated work space. So she is confident, strong headed and stubborn at times.”

Diana said: “Whether a ‘Cocktail’, ‘Happy Bhaag Jayegi’, ‘Lucknow Central’ or ‘Parmanu: The Story Of Pokhran’, these are the stories come once in a lifetime. Why should I miss out on them? I can wait because I believe in quality work.”

Born and brought up in Mumbai, Diana was a ‘shy child’ and though she had no plan to become an actress.

“I think this thought of models can’t act is such a cliche! Many of our top heroines like Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma were models before entering Bollywood. And they are wonderful actresses. I really failed to understand why people living with the misconception of we cannot act,” Diana retorted.

Directed by Ranjit Tiwari, “Lucknow Central” also features Farhan Akhtar, Gippy Grewal, Rajesh Sharma, Inaamulhaq, Ravi Kissen, Deepak Dobriyal among others.

The film releases on September 15.
