Opportunities have expanded due to new-age entertainment: Fatehi

IANS  |  Mumbai 

Model-actress Fatehi, who plays the female protagonist in the thriller "My Birthday Song", says booming entertainment platforms have given actors more opportunities to explore their talent.

After making special appearances in songs of films like "Rocky Handsome" and "Baahubali: The Beginning", is excited about her upcoming film releasing on January 19.

She told IANS: "Performing in front of the camera is a different thing and shooting a whole film is another. So far I just did whatever came my way, instead of waiting for a film to come. I think that is the best part of new age entertainment.

"One does not have to get frustrated with getting an opportunity, whether it is film, short film, or TV shows... As an entertainer, opportunities have expanded."

In the initial days of the shoot for "My Birthday Song", was a little worried. But as her co-actors and started encouraging her, she gained confidence.

"Since I was inexperienced in films, I thought it would be very intimidating to work with experienced people like and But I must say they are very encouraging. They clapped when I gave a good shot," she said.

An Indian born and raised in Canada, is not very good with Hindi. Is it a hurdle for her?

"The only factor that keeps me going is constantly working on my skills. I have been learning the language for quite some time now, and mujhe kaafi acchi tarah se Hindi aati hai (I know Hindi quite well now).

"Of course, you cannot compare my Hindi with a Hindi-speaking person, but I am confident enough to hold a conversation in mixed Hindi-English," she added.
