Mumbai: Actress Surveen Chawla, who plays an item girl in director Anurag Kashyap's upcoming film Ugly, hopes that the movie finds a strong audience through a positive word of mouth.
Ugly, will release on December 26, a week after actor Aamir Khan's film PK, which has set the cash registers ringing at the box office. While Surveen admits both films cater to different sets of audience, she is hopeful Ugly will grow.
"I am a huge fan of Rajkumar Hirani (PK director) and both the films are extremely different. The audience of Ugly is not same as that of PK. Ugly is film is for the niche audience. There is a different set of people who want to watch Anurag's films," Surveen said.
She is confident that if a film is good, it will do well. "I am certain that Ugly will grow through word of mouth," she added.
Ugly also features actors Rahul Bhatt, Ronit Roy, Girish Kulkarni, Siddhanth Kapoor and Tejaswini Kolhapure in key roles.
Talking about her role in the film, Surveen, who started her career from the small screen, said: "My role is little grey and my character is that of a crazy girl. She is not a straight-faced woman. Every character is little bitchy and dark in this film. I am playing a C-grade item girl, who is very selfish and greedy. Hopefully, people will like it."
