After upping her glam stakes exponentially for her recent efforts like ‘Jil’ and ‘Shivam’, actress Raashi Khanna is set to surprise us in a non-glamorous avatar in Sai Dharam Tej-starrer ‘Supreme’. The actress is playing a tough cop in the actioner. Insisting that donning khaki was like a breath of fresh air, she says, “I’m glad Anil Ravipudi (director) had faith in me to pull off the character and it’s indeed a welcome change for me. The role is de-glam but having said that, I just want to explore myself as an actor and play as many different roles as I can.”

After upping her glam stakes exponentially for her recent efforts like ‘Jil’ and ‘Shivam’, actress Raashi Khanna is set to surprise us in a non-glamorous avatar in Sai Dharam Tej-starrer ‘Supreme’. The actress is playing a tough cop in the actioner.

Insisting that donning khaki was like a breath of fresh air, she says, “I’m glad Anil Ravipudi (director) had faith in me to pull off the character and it’s indeed a welcome change for me. The role is de-glam but having said that, I just want to explore myself as an actor and play as many different roles as I can.”

The actress seems to have hit the gym to prep-up for the part. “I have shed a few kilos but this is not only for the role but it was a conscious decision from my end too, to look fit. My role is action-packed and I’m like the guy in the film. I saw a few Hollywood films to understand the nitty-gritty of a female-cop.
I love playing a cop and I had to indulge in action too, which was a first of a kind for me. I enjoyed beating up baddies,” quips Raashi, adding, “I’m thrilled with the response I got for my look. Some even commented on my social networking page that it’s my most elegant look till date.”
The model-turned-actress reveals that ‘Supreme’ will also see her trying her hands at comedy for the first time. “I have several comic scenes where my timing holds the key. So I learnt the art of comic timing and rehearsed a bit for the portions. I think I want to be called as a comedian after the film releases because there are several scenes which will make people to come to a conclusion that I was more of a comedian than a cop (in the film),” smiles Raashi.
