This year, the film
Poster Boys starring Deol Brothers, Sunny and Bobby was released. The film which was directed by Shreyas Talpade also starred actress,
Samiksha Bhatnagar who plays Bobby's wife, Surajmukhi. Despite the
impressive star cast and a good story, the film didn't get a great
response at the box office. But recently a survey by a leading trade
publication reveals that Poster Boys has the 12th highest rating of
the year on television. It has emerged as a surprise hit on
television with impressions of ts first showing beating films like
Raees and Baadshaho.
Speaking on that, the leading lady of the film,
Samiksha says, "I can't express my emotions after learning about this. It gives me immense pleasure and happiness. I consider
this film as God's gift to me. When the auditions were going on, I
was not aware. Then someone called me and asked me to go for the
audition and after that within a few days I got the role of
Surajmukhi. After the release of the film, it has got very good
response from people but somehow that didn't transpire into the
box office collection. I was very disappointed but now when I got to
know that the film has got the rating of 12 on television and is
ahead of Raees and Baadshaho. I am happy that Poster
Boys has got justice from television viewers."
So what has been
your fondest memory of the film? "I would say the entire film.
It was Bobby's comeback film, Shreyas's debut film as a director so
indeed it was a special one. From day one, Bobby and I gelled well and
that was needed for our characters. Shreyas is also a very confident
director. He is very sorted and focused. From day one, he knew what he
wanted from us, and gave me full freedom to excel as Surajmukhi. For
a newcomer like me who was debuting with Poster Boys, it was a huge
help. I was a bit nervous initially, but everything was okay after my
first take. I wish I had scenes with Sunny Sir also."
So has Poster Boys finally opened the doors for her in the world of films? "I would say people have noticed me as Surajmukhi in the film. And yes I have got a heartwarming response from the industry and am getting offers as well. And soon, I will announce my next."
Well, that's great to hear and we wish the actor good luck for all her upcoming projects.
