Pavleen Gujral, who is part of the film ‘Sukhee’, says that people are loving the film. The film seeks to deliver a strong message for women in a light-hearted manner and people have loved this part of the film, she says.
“I am getting an amazing response for ‘Sukhee’. The film has created a buzz for being a very family-oriented, light, sweet-hearted film. My viewpoint about the fact that women need a life too. Just because a woman becomes a wife or mother or daughter-in-law, that doesn’t mean that she is tied to it. She has her own wishes and dreams and I think every woman should not forget that you have to love yourself before you love anyone else as that is most important. So, yes, my point is that every woman, even man, everyone in the family, needs to have their own individuality and as a family, everyone needs to be supportive and caring about each other’s feelings,” she says.
Talking about herself, she says, “I am an independent woman. I think that it comes more from the space of wanting something of your own and when you have to make important decisions in life, you should have a last call. You should have enough faith in yourself that you will make the right decision. I think that’s what independence really is, that you have enough courage and faith in yourself that you will make the right decision.”
Ask her the kind of roles she is looking for, she says, “The kind of roles I am looking for now are basically more content-driven like the one in ‘Sukhee’. That was very content driven. So, I think the past history of roles that I have done has been very content-driven, women centric. I don’t know, naturally I have got a lot of content-driven roles. I also feel like doing something like in the action world because I’m tall and believe in fitness. So, something like the Indian version of Lara Croft, something really interesting to play.”
Balancing her personal and profession is important, she says, adding, “I think it’s really not that hard to balance a professional life and your personal life if you are able to be present in that moment like when you are at work, you should concentrate on work, when you are at home, you should concentrate on your home. Like the saying, don’t bring work home, so don’t bring your home to your work and vice versa. I think everything just falls into place. We have 24 hours in a day and as human beings we have a very developed mind, our brain is the fastest. God has given us the capability to do many things in a day. I just try to divide my day, that at this time, I have to do this, or to do this at this time, and everything just falls in place.”
