Ratna Pathak Shah remembers movies from the 1970s and 1980s where "poor" Shabana Azmi and Smita Pati

Ratna Pathak Shah said openly about how her comedic parts had "saved her life." She claimed that in the 1970s and 1980s, performers like Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil would weep or be "mad all the time" in their movies.



Actress Ratna Pathak Shah has discussed her comic roles throughout her career and how they really "saved" her life. She claimed in a recent interview that comedy taught her acting is "so much more than crying and yelling loudly." Ratna mentioned the late actress Smita Patil and seasoned performer Shabana Azmi as examples and claimed that she is not an actor who would "tear, appear sad, and furious." They "always wept or were enraged," Ratna continued, in their movies. (Read More | Ratna Pathak Shah inquires as to whether India aspires to resemble Saudi Arabia)

Ratna expressed her appreciation to Anand Mahendroo for providing her with Idhar Udhar (1985–1998). Supriya Pathak, Shammi, Dina Pathak, Nisha Singh, Tom Alter, Guddi Maruti, Lillete Dubey, Amita Nangia, and Kanwarjeet Paintal were also featured in the series. She also discussed how Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai (2004–2006) and Filmi Chakkar (1993–1955) affected her life.


Ratna stated to Pinkvilla in conversation: "The humour saved my life. I learned via comedy that acting is much more than just sobbing and yelling. that humour requires a great deal of talent, effort, and timing, and that training oneself is a continuous process that must be done constantly. Therefore, all three items and all three concepts have been helpful."


She said, "I'm not just an actress who will cry, be sad, or be furious. because at the time, ladies did just that. Take a look at every movie from the 1970s and 1980s, including art films. What did impoverished Shabana (Azmi) and Smita (Patil) do? All the while, they were either crying or angry. The film's creators were looking at things in the stereotyped way. They (women) had no right to be content or to experience any kind of anguish. These are the stories that are published."


Ratna appeared in a number of other serials besides Filmi Chakkar, Idhar Udhar, and Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai, including Tara (1993–1997), Gubbare (1999), Apna Apna Style (2000), and Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai: Take 2.


Ratna made her Bollywood debut in 1983's Mandi, directed by Shyam Benegal and starring Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil, and Naseeruddin Shah. She went on to appear in a number of films, including Lipstick Under My Burkha (2017), Thappad (2018), Kapoor & Sons (2016), Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (2016), Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu (2012), and Mirch Masala (1987).


She most recently appeared in Divyang Thakkar's Jayeshbhai Jordaar with Boman Irani, Shalini Pandey, and Ranveer Singh. Ratna will next be seen with Dia Mirza, Fatima Sana Shaikh, and Sanjana Sanghi in Tarun Dudeja's Dhak Dhak.
