Sharmin Segal admits portraying Alamzeb through director's way: Says "I played Alamzeb the way SLB interpreted"

Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar has oozed and whacked the Indian period drama fanatics, especially the ones who long for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's breathtaking grandeur finesse. The whopping drama series has roped off some of the most ethereal characters portrayed by the Indian actresses, and been able to impress audiences like absolutely none. The huge ensemble of female star cast included actresses from the starry front of Indian cinema like Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sanjida Sheikh, Richa Chadha, and Sharmin Segal. 

Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, almost everything about the series has been loved by global audiences but there is a certain section of people, who have raised doubts and concerns about Sharmin Segal's role of Alamzeb in the series which has been termed as 'underperformed'. As per the unpopular opinion of the masses, she was holding the same expression throughout the 8 episode drama Espionage. The social media has outraged her performance so much, that the actress seems to be affected, resulting in her shutting off the comments section of Instagram. 

Sharmin Segal talks about portraying Alamzeb

Now after a month of Heeramandi's grand release, Sharmin Segal finally broke her silence on portraying Alamzeb and channeling herself through the social media impacts. Recently, while talking to a well-known media forum she said that she is very open to constructive criticism and people's opinions are however being much helpful, as they generally do to an actor. The Malaal actor has in fact revealed that she portrayed Alamzeb’s character just the way Sanjay Leela Bhansali wanted her to play. "She is quiet, she is nuanced, she is innocent, she is vulnerable to that degree, and I think it stands out a little differently because she is not a tawaif. So that I think is an important part of the character and how me as an actor and Sanjay Sir as the director interpreted the character." she added. 

Continuing further, she accepted the amount of hard work she had put in while portraying the role. She said, "I did put in a lot of hard work and at the end of the day I gave it my all. But I gave it my all eventually to give it to my audience and they do have the right to voice their opinions, and, in the world, we live in today it’s very easy and accessible to voice your opinion."

And as a creative person, it’s very important to acknowledge that. They have a right to their opinion – positive or negative. That’s one thing that gives me perspective and allows me to be okay."
