I think normally all of us aspire to go to Hollywood but our Indian producer Sajid Nadiawala can proudly say that he got Hollywood to India. It is a great honor to have Sylvester Stallone in ‘Kambakkht Ishq’ and it has been a great experience. He is the ultimate action hero in Hollywood and coming together with Akshay who is the best in Bollywood, it makes it a lethal combination. I am looking forward to looking at the two stunt men together on screen.
You are looking smashing in the promos. How differently have you been styled in the film?
I think in ‘Kambakkht Ishq’ not just in terms with me but style and fashion completely has been taken to another level. We have styled the entire movie and will not have a typical Hindi movie kind of flashy stuff. Basically it is very understated, classy, and very chic.
What role do you essay in the movie ‘Kambakkht Ishq’?
Samrita Rai is someone who doesn’t like to love. She is very against love and doesn’t like men. She is feminist in the movie. She is arrogant and a little bit of a brat. What happens with her and how she falls in love and for what reasons forms the story of the film.
You have not mentioned anything about the super model look you are portraying in the film.
Samrita is doing part time modeling but actually wants to be a surgeon by profession. So that is what it is and has nothing much to do with the story. The basic flow of the film goes with the fact that she wants to be a surgeon.
Have you done any stunt scenes in the film? If you had to pick one of them between Akshay and Sylvester, who would it be?
All the stunts are between Akshay and Sylvester. I am not doing any action in the film. It would be hard to choose between the two of them as both of them are extremely talented. They are good with their action and performance. So it is difficult to choose.
‘Kambakkht Ishq’ is the first big film releasing after the strike. How you feeling after this prolonged wait?
Well, I am as starved as the audience and the media. I am dying to go to a theatre, grab pop corn, have a doughnut and watch a film. There is already so much buzz around and people are dying to go to cinemas and watch a good film. There have been so much of loses in the film fraternity that the films must work in today’s times to support all of us.
