From theatre to TV and films, actress Delnaaz Irani has done it all. Even after being in the industry for over two decades now, she doesn’t mind going by the book and follow the director strictly, however, she confessed that with comedy it’s different. “I am very much a director’s actor, you tell me what to do and I’ll do that. Comedy comes naturally to me so I go beyond the script in comedy otherwise I am a complete director’s actor. In comedy, it’s impromptu, and I do a lot to the character. I feel it’s up to the director as well as in how well can you leave the artist, otherwise certain people are like ‘no just stick to what is told’ and I am happy with that as well,” she said.
Known for her perfect comic timing, Delnaaz has also garnered the audience’s attention with her performance in shows like Choti Sarrdaarni or Adbhut Kahaniyan’s Hijack.
After doing over ten films and close to twenty-five TV shows including reality series as well, she admitted that it doesn’t take her much time to shift from one character to another, in fact, once the camera is off she easily comes back to her real self.
“Even if the smallest of the small role comes my way I usually take it up because I know I’ll be seen and loved in that role. I will be appreciated even if it is a two-minute cameo.
