Dad encouraged me to go bold in 'B A Pass': Shilpa
Mumbai: Shilpa Shukla, who has shot several bold scenes for 'B.A. Pass', says she was skeptical before signing the movie but her father encouraged her to go for it.
"I was skeptical before going ahead with 'B.A. Pass' as it was an extremely bold role. As an actor, I didn't know how it's going to be and at the back of my mind, I wanted to do this film. So, I asked my father about it, and he said, 'You will have to go bold and take the risk'," Shilpa told us.
"This was his last advice that I remember. This film is dedicated to my father. He is not aware of the film industry, but he said you cannot excel without taking risks," she added.
Shilpa lost her father N.K. Shukla in March 2012.
In 'B.A. Pass', Shilpa plays a rich, married older woman who plays a sex guru to a young boy and teaches him the art of lovemaking. It is her boldest role so far.
The actress, who featured in 'Chak De! India', says her mother has watched the film and that she loved it.
"My father couldn't see the film, but my mother saw it and she loved it. As a mother she was concerned and she advised me to deal with things intelligently. It's a path-breaking film," said Shilpa.
Based on Mohan Sikka's short story 'The Railway Aunty', the movie has been screened at international film festivals.
Directed by Ajay Bahl, 'B.A. Pass', releasing June 21, also features actor Shadab Kamal.
