Be it Aap Ka Surroor - The Moviee or Karzzzz debutants just get lucky when cast opposite Himesh Reshammiya. Aap Ka Surroor had Hansika Motwani and Karzzzz has Shweta Kumar. And now his upcoming film, Hhey Gujju has new-bee, Shruti Agrawal as a lead opposite him
Catch the sizzling Shruti Agrawal, the supermodel who is all set to mark her foray in films as she talks about her debut film.
My film is titled Hhey Gujju and I am playing the lead opposite Himesh Reshammiya. It is a romantic comedy and is being directed by Satish Kaushik and produced by Studio 18. My role is that of an NRI girl who comes to India and falls in love with Himesh.
It was sheer luck that I bagged the film. The producers were looking out for someone to play the lead and after seeing my pictures, they called up my agent.
I was informed that I had to meet them urgently. It was already seven in the evening but I still went for the meeting.
The producers just spoke to me for 15 minutes and said that they would revert in a week’s time but before I reached home, I got a call from my agent who said I was selected.
I have done an acting course from Anupam Kher’s An Actor Prepares Academy. It was a three-month course and trust me it helped me in leaps and bounds. Before the course, I have not done anything in acting so I had to start from scratch.
But yes being a model from the past two and a half years did help. I am a professional model and have done shows with a lot of leading designers and have been featured in the Kingfisher swimsuit calendar twice.
My first shot was a dance sequence and I was so nervous. That was the first time that I actually walked into a film set. But my director was pretty sweet and patient enough to understand my situation. The shot went on smoothly without any problems.
Well I have been lucky enough to have met the right people in life. I had heard a lot about the industry but because I am from the modelling world I know how the industry functions. Anyways all that matters is how you want to project yourself. As long as you know the kind of people to work with, the industry is a great place.
If you are serious about your work and have the required potential, you will never go unnoticed. You have to believe in yourself.
Also I would like to say that it is very important to keep doing things even after you are done with the acting course. When you do the acting course, you have to concentrate and pay attention to all the classes conducted in the acting school.
I am too young to choose who I get to work with. There are so many directors who are brilliant at their work; Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Yash Raj, and Karan Johar are directors everyone dreams of working with. I am a die-hard fan of Shah Rukh Khan and would love to work with him someday.
Right now, I just want to concentrate on my debut movie. This is my first film and I am taking it really slow. I am only concentrating on proving myself as an actress so that I get good roles in the future.
