Ila Arun’s Success Mantra: Never Get Desperate For Work
NEW DELHI, (IANS) – Veteran actress and folk-pop singer Ila Arun, who has a career span of 44 years in the industry, has shared her success mantra, and it is Lord Krishna’s shloka “Karm karo, fal ki chinta mat karo”.
Ila was recently seen as Nalini in the crime thriller drama ‘Aarya’ season three.
The series features actress Sushmita Sen in the titular character of Aarya Sareen.
Talking about her work mantra, Ila said, “That’s what gives you energy. Don’t be desperate and don’t take bad projects. In my entire journey to date, I have got one-two wrong movies also, which had messed up producers and directors. When you work with good people like Ram Madhvani, whose entire things and facilities are systematic, then one realizes why did I say yes to those bad projects,” she shared.
Ila, known for her famous track ‘Choli Ke Peeche’, said: “And in my 44 years of career I was never desperate. I was looking for a good director and work. Because if that was not there then I could sing a song or do theatre. I never faced a lack of work.”
The 69-year-old thespian further said: “OTT is really God’s blessing. It requires good actors, they are not bothered about how you look, what age you are. If such roles keep coming to me then I will continue doing work.”
