So, does that mean she’ll not do a supporting role at all? “I’ll do a supporting role only if it’s a Sanjay Leela Bhansali or a Yash Raj film because their women look classy and gorgeous,” she gives back. Quite ambitious! Raima is currently promoting her upcoming flick C Kkompany, which also stars Tusshar Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Mithun Chakraborty and Rajpal Yadav. Talking about the film, Raima informs, “The film is a clean comedy which also has an inspirational message. And I play the sister of a don, which is played by Mithun Chakraborty.”

Raima, in her filmi career, has done a lot of serious cinema and has won a lot of accolades for it too. So how is it doing comedy now? “It feels good.

Serious cinema sometimes gets a li’l heavy for an actor, though comedy isn’t easy either. But I’m learning,”

she says, adding, “However, I’m still doing serious cinema, which include Aparna Sen’s film Japanese Wife and another with Rituparno Ghosh.”

But after having been in the industry for quite sometime now, wonder why has the pretty gal not seen much commercial success yet?

“No doubt it has been a struggle for me, but thank God my performance as an actor hasn’t deteriorated.

And I have a feeling that when success will come, it will be steady. I have learnt a lot from the past and feel maturer now,” she says.

So, since Raima has decided to do more commercial films now, is she game for skin show too?

“Nobody associates me with skin show. No one has ever approached me to do an item number even,” she laughs.

Raima is also doing a film with her sister Riya.

“We are very professional when it comes to acting.

We don’t bring our work home. At home we are like any other sisters would be.

We take what comes to us.

That way we are not that ambitious. Riya may look ambitious, but let me tell you she’s not.”
