Those who thought that Celina Jaitley could never win an award for ‘Best Actress’ were proven wrong when the curvy babe showed that there’s more to her than her eye-grabbing anatomy. In November this year, she clinched the best female actor award for her performance in the English film ‘Love Has No Language’ at the 33rd Cairo International Film Festival.
“This year has been so good. Winning this award has been an icing on the cake. These awards work as a motivation factor and help you perform better. As the role was a bit different from the conventional roles I do, it worked,” Celina is quoted as saying by a news agency.
After being typecast as a sex kitten in Hindi films, Celina has been trying to change her image by doing films and roles that challenge her as an actress.
“I have always seen that whenever I have attempted something different, I have been appreciated,” she added.
Incidentally, the actress has become a tad choosy and has been signing fewer films than before.
“If Aamir Khan does one movie at a time, he is applauded but if Celina Jaitley chooses to do a few movies, she is criticised. Why such disparity?” Celina questioned.
Among other things, Celina is doing films in different languages. She’s already been part of Telugu and Kannada films. Now, she wants to do a Bengali movie, preferably by Rituparno Ghosh.
Celina is all praise for Bengali directors.
“The way they weave stories is fascinating. They simply touch the human chord. I would love to work with Ritu-da. This would be one of my targets for the next year,” she revealed.
