Gul Panag, miss independent

MUMBAI: Actor Gul Panag, who loves travel and adventure, says she no longer depends on films to earn her bread and butter. She has been missing from the Hindi film scene for long.

Asked about it, Gul said, “It’s not that I don’t do films. Of course, I am doing them, but it’s just that I no longer depend on films for my bread and butter. I haven’t been dependent on them for a very long time.”

She added that she has been an entrepreneur for the last seven to eight years. “I have realised that the kind of films that I want to do, cannot be done for bread and butter. I am still happy to do films but they are the ones that I should really like.”

Gul, a former beauty queen, started her acting career in 2003 with the film Dhoop, and later went on to films like Dor, Manorama Six Feet Under, Rann, Turning 30 and Fatso!.

When asked whether she was happy with the kind of scripts she was being offered these days, Gul said, “I am busy these days. And every now and then, I keep getting some scripts. I recently did a Punjabi film that I really enjoyed doing. Whenever I find some challenging scripts, I will do it.”

The Ab Tak Chhappan 2 actor has always been vocal about her opinion on vital issues of the society, and specifically about gender equality. She feels that as far as remuneration disparity between men and women is concerned, it’s not just restricted to the film world.

“I think there are people who are speaking up adequately on that. It’s not just about Bollywood. I am also an entrepreneur, so it’s not just in Bollywood. I see this outside Bollywood as well,” the 37-year-old said.
