Shahrukh is a lovely soul: Shweta Varma

The Bhindi Baazaar Inc. actor talks about her upcoming movie and her equation with her superstar brother-in-law

Bhindi Baazaar Inc. maybe her first mainstream film, but Shweta Varma is not one to nervously bite her nails while waiting for its release. “I am vacationing in Singapore with my entire family. The shooting schedule was really hectic and I didn’t get much time to unwind. This is my chance to do so. I will be back before the release,” she says.

Shweta is very confident about the movie. “In Bhindi Baazaar, we have really great actors, who take the movie to a serious level. It’s a real-life underworld thriller and I am sure that genre too has its audience. We have also integrated the lives of people who actually live in Bhindi Bazaar (an area in Mumbai). So I am confident people will like it.” Shweta plays Simran, “a typical girl-next-door who is just out of college, is jovial and fun-loving. I am like that in real life too, except I talk much less than Simran. She talks a lot,” laughs Shweta.

She has always wanted to be an actress, but when Shweta got a job as a flight attendant with an international airline five years ago, she didn’t say no. “I met new people every day, people from all over the world. You learn a lot about people, which helps when you are portraying a character. Not that I’d thought it would. During shoots and flights, there are times when you are dead tired, but you have to pretend to be fresh as a daisy. Both professions do have that in common.”

Three months ago, Shweta’s life took another turn when she wed Gauri Khan’s cousin and thereby inherited Shahrukh Khan as a brother-in-law. “He’s been very nice to me. He is a lovely soul, a lovely human being. We do talk about films, but our relationship is more personal than professional. I don’t want him to feel that he has to help. When he started out, he had no godfather in the industry. He is a self-made man and that’s why he connects better with the audience than those actors who had godfathers. I want to go that way.”
