Busy Bee
Man's World|December 2019
With a busy 2019 and a 2020 full of releases, Kubbra Sait talks about evolving storylines, meatier roles for women and the perfect timing of web content
Samreen Tungekar

Sait has shown different sides of every character she has played, whether it’s the counsellor Anushka with some weird idea of therapy in Rejectx, or Gaitonde’s transgender love interest in Sacred Games, or her appearances with Salman Khan In Ready and Sultan. With 2020 as busy as 2019, the actress sits down with us to talk storylines, character actors and more.

Kubbra, what’s on your mind right now?

I’m also thinking what I’m going to be wearing for the Emmy’s as I’m going for it because Sacred Games has been nominated. The feeling is mad. I remember when Sacred Games had just released, Inside Edge had just been nominated for the Emmy’s, and I had said, ‘Next year, we’ll win this.’ Now it feels like it’s happening.”

How has 2019 been for you?

It’s been a reflective year. You can only dream of something like Sacred Games happening to you, and it was reality for me. That being said, it’s also been one of the busiest years of my life. It almost feels like I used to anchor in my past life. I have finished five web series and I’ve been filming Jawaani Jaaneman with Saif Ali Khan, Dolly Kitty with Konkona Sen Sharma and Bhumi Pednekar and a film with Rajat Kapoor. I’ve done eight projects and 2019 isn’t even over yet…
