Aruna Shields has grabbed many eyeballs with her nude scenes in the upcoming movie Mr. Singh Mrs. Mehta. But she would not want the focus to shift from the film and its main theme of extramarital affairs to her steamy scenes. Her own take on extramarital affairs is quite impressive.
“I don’t agree with (extramarital) affairs as they cause pain and secrets in relationships...but people will always have them and for a variety of usually selfish and complicated reasons: neglect, insecurity, boredom, midlife crisis, weakness, excitement, stupidity, loneliness, revenge,” Aruna reveals in an interview. In the movie Aruna plays Neera, a girl from small town who is an agony aunt columnist.
She advices others on their relationship and discovers that her husband is cheating on her. Thereafter, she too has an affair with another man. “Neera has her affair out of loneliness, despair and confusion. Also her conscience is relieved because she knows her husband is also cheating on her!” Aruna justifies her character’s infidelity in the film. Aruna made her Bollywood debut as an action babe in the Vivek Oberoi-starrer Prince. “From a high action film like Prince to a film based purely on relationships, you can say that it has been quiet a jump.
I’ve been blessed to have done a variety of different roles so early on in my career,” says the British hottie who has also done theatre and acted in the stone-age flick ‘AO: The Last Neanderthal’. Starring Prashant Narayanan opposite Aruna, Mr Singh Mrs Mehta is set to release on June 25.
