“I find the business of cinema very boring - the trade of cinema, the facts and figures, the money - that’s not what appeals to me about cinema and frankly, I don’t even know about it,” said Konkona.

“What I like is playing different characters, meeting and interacting with creative personalities and not the profits,” she added.

Asked how she manages her own accounts, Konkona said: “I have a CA(chartered accountant) who handles my account. But that’s like a general account. I don’t have a very huge, Bollywood-type account.”

The National Award-winning actress, known for doing offbeat roles in films like Mr & Mrs Iyer and Page 3, will be seen next in a fully-commercial movie Wake Up Sid with Ranbir Kapoor. She is also doing Mirch, where she will play a double role for the first time.
