Tell us about your film “Toss”
Toss is a story of a group of childhood friends. And how an incident changes the relationships, beliefs, love, trust between all of them. It’s a fast-paced thriller film.
What role you are playing in the film?
I play the character of ‘Shasha’. She sings on the cruise of Goa. She is an extrovert, fun-loving, ambitious girl who believes in herself and wants to achieve whatever she has desired for. Prashant Raj is cast opposite me in the film.
How different “Shasha” is from your other roles played in the past?
Actually, first time I am playing a character like Shasha. I have never played a role like this. Mostly comedy or romance has been my forte. But, Shasha is different and unique.
Did you undergo any training or workshop for the role of “Shasha”?
Yes, I learnt the accent and way of speaking and behavior of Goan girls. All the star-cast attended the workshop before the film shooting started.
What according to you is the U.S.P of the film and what will make audience go and watch the film?
The film has all those elements which the audience wants and loves these days. It has thriller, romance, love, everything. According to me, the U.S.P of the film is the presentation.
Apart from you, there are two more female actors in the film. How was your rapport with them?
We belonged to same age group and therefore had loads and loads of fun on the sets of the film. One can witness the rapport when they go and watch the film.
How was the experience to work with Director Ramesh Khatkar?
It was an immense pleasure to work with him. He is a passionate filmmaker. His dedication comes across from his work.
Which are your upcoming films?
“Daddy Cool” and “Toss” are my upcoming films. And both of these films are releasing together.
How are you feeling when both the films are releasing together?
I am keeping my finger crossed. Let’s hope for the best. I am nervous about the response of the audience.
What kind of role would you like to play- comic or serious?
I love playing all kinds of roles. That brings my versatility across. Being an actor I feel comfortable playing all kinds of roles with several shades. Be it ‘Awara Pagaal Dewana’ or ‘Shoot out at Lokhandwala.’
