My experience has been fantastic; everyone has always been talking about, how Yashraj pampers their actors and they are so good to work with! And after experiencing it firsthand, I must say there are people claimed who are extremely hospitable, know what they are doing, and treat everyone with great respect and great equality.
How was your experience with the entire cast of ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’, especially Ranbir Kapoor?
Everyone was fantastic! I didn’t have any common scenes with Bipasha or Dipika, so we didn’t shoot together, but we did promote the film together. And when 3 girls getting together, they talk about all things like from clothes, gossips to boys; everything so it was great fun.
Recently when we had an article on hairstyles of bollywood actresses, many fans said they loved your hair in “Bachna Ae Haseeno”? What do you want to say to your fans?
Thank you so much! Siddhartha and I were experimenting on that look, we didn’t know whether we should do it or not. Siddharth was very confident and he told me “go ahead, it’s a really nice look, we’ll try it because we want you to look completely different in the post chapter”. It’s really nice to see that people have appreciated and liked it.
Tell us something about your role in the upcoming
In kidnap again I play the role of 17 year old girl, who is very hep and modern. She is someone who is excluded from her father and therefore is on a constant fight with her mother because she does not allow her to meet her father. So finally when she ends up getting kidnapped, how her mother is forced to talk to her father in order to get her daughter rescued.
In both the movies ‘Kidnap’ and ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ you are playing a role of a teenager. How will you differentiate yourself as ‘Mahi’ and ‘Sonia’?
Well completely, these characters are like sweet and salt. Mahi is very romantic, believes in fairy tales, sweet and soft. And Sonia is someone very practical, today and ultra-modern. She has no interest in love, neither she is a nut case who is wanting love from man. This is basic difference.
How is working with Imraan Khan and Sanjay Dutt in ‘Kidnap’?
Imraan khan was someone I got along with like a house on fire. We were like two mad hatters who just kept on jabbering all the time about everything. He is a very knowledgeable person, someone who knows everything. So it’s great fun chatting and quizzing him, I use to call him a ‘walking, talking Encyclopedia’, because you can ask him anything and if he doesn’t have the answer, he will get it within 7 minutes flat and he let you know all that you need to know.
