After being known as the glamour quotient in her films, Riya Sen will be seen in a non-glamorous avatar in her next project Sivan Aapne Sapna Money Money, a Mukta Arts film to be directed by Sangeeth Sivan. So what made the actress shed her glamorous image? “I found the role very interesting. I did it for my own satisfaction as an actress,” says Riya. “It is a comedy. The role requires an Indian look. I took this role as a challenge.”
Speaking about working with Subhash Ghai and Sangeeth Sivan, Riya says, “I have always wanted to work with Subhash Ghai. But when he finally approached me, it came as a pleasant surprise. Needless to say, I would never refuse such an oppurtunity. As far as Sangeeth is concerned, I have worked with his brother Santosh Sivan for the Malayalam film Ananda Bhadram. Santosh is someone I admire, personally and professionally.”
And although the role demands a simple look, Riya has shot for two glamorous videos for the film. “It was a challenge and helped me oscillate between two diverse looks for the same film,” she says.
