Ratna Pathak Shah

Mumbai: Actress Ratna Pathak Shah today stated that actors should focus on the script rather than playing a character to make it likeable for the audience.

Ratna had been a famous actress and has made the characters popular as on-screen mother while playing roles of Maya Sarabhai or the rigid Queen Nirmala Devi Rathore.

Ratna talking to media she stated: “Nobody should play a character to make it likeable. You never know which one will be liked by the audience. You better play the character as it has been written and follow the script.

“As an actor, my job is to communicate the character as the director thought of and put it down on paper. That’s how I look at it,” added the actress, who will be seen in comedy series “Sarabhai vs Sarabhai: Take 2”.
