"I'd love to portray any kind of woman but never a bimbette! I'd never portray a character with no grey matter," said Chopra when asked about the kind of roles she'd like to play. Well, won't really know what her heroes may have to say to that but then what exactly are the characters that excite her most?
"History amuses me in ways more than one," says newbie Sherlyn Chopra. "It's all about the battles lost and the victories won. Between Jhaansi Ki Rani, Jodha and Radha, I'd anyday prefer to portray Radha. Everything about her is so fascinating and sensual that the mind yearns to know more. I'm sure Radha must have been quite amused with herself," she adds.
Now that's quite a lethal mix of intellect and sensuality. While she seems to have chalked a path for herself for the kind of roles she wishes to play, how about her dream man?
"It isn't Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise or David Beckham. My fantasy is 'the one and only Al Pacino'", she says. Is that so? "That's right. The very thought of him gets me orgasmic! And only a guy like him can tame a girl like me. But I have something more to add," she says. And what's that?
"Each time I look at Mallika Sherawat's pictures, I begin to wonder if I'm still straight." Really? "That's right", she says with a mischievous grin, "I don't know why I feel this way but I do feel that it's just a phase and this too shall pass."
Hoping that this is just a phase, she moves on to another topic - the films she are doing. So what's happening on that front? She must surely be hunting for some good opportunities, isn't she? One has in fact heard about how a coy-looking Sherlyn Chopra walked in for a film audition recently and no one suspected what was on the cards. So what happened there?
"The director asked me to enact a scene in the next couple of minutes when I rushed to the ladies powder room. Moments later, when I walked back wearing rugged jeans, a short unbuttoned shirt and a pair of stylish black shades, the director asked me for my name since he failed to recognize me. On realizing that he was conned by my transition, he referred to the me as 'the perfect con'", she says excitedly.
Incidentally, one also hears that the role she was auditioning for was of a con girl and there are no prizes for guessing that she has a fat chance of bagging it now.
Here is wishing the newbie a great future ahead and truckloads of bouqets and compliments!
