Kainaz said she was offered similar roles after “Ragini MMS” but she turned down to keep herself from being typecast.
“The film facilitated me graduate to being a lead actress after playing supporting roles,” said Kainaz, who has played bit parts in “Paathshala” and “Wake Up Sid”.
“Ragini MMS” had a few intimate scenes as well.
“After I did ‘Ragini’, I was labeled a bold actress and was proposed similar roles. But I declined them as I didn’t want to be typecast as a bold actress. I was expecting to do something different from Ragini. The interesting part of being an actress lies in acting something new everyday,” said Kainaz.
It was the inclination to do something new that made Kainaz accept the role of a female chauffeur in her recently-released film “Challo Driver”.
Vickrant Mahajan debutante producer and director of the film, presents Kainaz as a strong-willed, well educated girl who is confused about her profession.
Kainaz further added “My character is very impulsive and always looking for excitement. Her friend strikes a bet with her that if she wants something different, she should try and become a driver.
“She takes up the job of a man’s chauffeur without knowing he is a strict and a difficult employer. What occurs between the two, how people respond to a female chauffeur especially in a city like Delhi, that is the story,” she said.
The movie, which also stars Prem Chopra and Manoj Pahwa, was shot exclusively in Delhi and Kaniaz says it was a freaky experience as people on the roads would be stunned to see a female driver at the wheel.
“It was strange because people would peer into the car, while we were shooting on the road, to see a female dressed as a chauffeur at the driving seat. It was funny. But while driving around the city I found out Delhi roads are much better than Mumbai,” she said.
