Actor Sharmila Tagore says Hollywood actors like Katherine Hepburn worked for more years as compared to female actors in India. She thinks audience prefers the opinion makers to be male, reports Hindustan Times.
While actors Rishi Kapoor, Asha Parekh and Hema Malini have shared some lesser known and controversial facts of their lives in their biographies, actor Sharmila Tagore says she isn’t too “fond of herself” to write a book. “I will do it when the time comes. I keep myself occupied with lots of things. So, I don’t know. Either it’ll be done posthumously or if I ever get down to it, I’ll write it.” Not denying the possibility of writing it in future, she says, “I could [write a book]. I write my own speeches. But it takes a lot of time, it’s a discipline to sit down and write. I think about it and forget it. I don’t put it down. Every time I think [about the book], I lose the momentum and the time is gone. One should do it now, as one forgets a lot of things,” she said at an event organised by PHD Chambers in the Capital. The Kashmir Ki Kali (1964) actor, who divides her time between Delhi and Mumbai says “there’s lots to do” every time she’s in the Capital.
Tagore, who resides in Vasant Vihar, says she loves the vibe of the city that’s brought forth through its prominent scene of art and culture. “I like reading and watching films. Delhi, being the Capital, almost all the shows come here. It’s privy to a lot of cultural activities, lectures, art exhibitions, music and plays. But I don’t like to be too busy, I go to Pataudi (Palace), I like my garden [there],” she says.
