Krystle D’souza on making her movie debut with ‘Chehre’: “I knew I wanted to make the plunge and was ready for it”


Actress Krystle D’souza who made her movie debut with the Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi starrer Chehre, opened up about her transition from TV to films. The change was not easy as Krystle had to face a lot of rejections before getting her first big break.

Many TV stars who make this journey face similar treatment and many times even have to deal with unfair demands from the filmmakers. When asked if she too had to face any such demand Krystle replied in negative. “Thankfully, I have been blessed with such good people that I never faced anything as such.”

D’souza believes in going to auditions and giving her best. “Whatever auditions I get, I go for them. Some click and some don’t but I only believe in auditions. I believe in showing what I can give as my talent; you like it, you take it, you don’t like it for your own reasons, that’s also fair enough. Now, I understand from a director and producer’s point of view and if I don’t fit the role, no matter how good I act, it’s not going to work out. I feel you have to have an unbiased opinion and thankfully nothing bad has happened to me and I have met only great people in my life,” she quotes.

Talking about staying away from television for so long Krystle says, “I knew I wanted to make the plunge and I was ready for it. So, I reduced working on TV, not because I look down at TV, but just because once you sign a TV show, you don’t know when will it end. You won’t get the time to do a film or anything else in the midst of that. So, I would have had to wait for another two-three years to do films but in my heart, I knew I was ready to take the plunge. Thus, I haven’t done TV in the last three-four years.”

Although Krystle was seen on an OTT show, Fittrat about which she says “I did an OTT show after that as I felt it would be a stepping stone for me. Also, I knew that an OTT show would have a 40-day schedule, so if I sign anything else meanwhile, I could take it up. I did refrain from doing TV but only because I knew that if I did that, I wouldn’t be able to do this for a while, something that I had dreamt for myself.”

Chehre was the second film to release theatrically after the second wave of COVID-19 in India and has been received well by the critics and audiences alike.
