New Delhi, July 13 Actress Amrita Puri, the only female actor in “Kai Po Che!”, says that director Abhishek Kapoor is the USP of the film.
“Kai Po…”, the big screen adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s book “The 3 Mistakes of My Life”, also features TV actors Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh and Rajkumar Yadav.
“I was a little nervous earlier but Abhishek is such a nice person. In the beginning of the film, he had a one on one chat with me, where he wanted me to get completely comfortable. That chat actually set the path for the rest of the film.”
“During our chat he talked to me as a person and not as the director of the film or as a professional. He made me understand the fact that he has chosen me because I am the best person for his role. If your director believes in you, it gives an actor a lot of security. He is the star of ‘Kai Po…’,” Amrita told IANS.
Not many newcomers get a chance to do something new film after film. But the 28-year-old got to play a small town girl in her debut film “Aisha” followed by a housewife in “Blood Money”, and in “Kai Po…” she will be seen as a vivacious girl. Amrita considers herself very lucky.
“My character in ‘Kai Po Che’ is very different from that in ‘Aisha’ and ‘Blood Money’. Vidya is very naughty and a fun loving person. She is very mischievous. She is not the traditional types. She is very strong and a go getter,” she said.
“The three characters that I have played are completely different from each other. I think I am a lucky one.”
Recalling the shooting schedule Amrita says she loved being pampered by the male co-actors on the sets.
“Working with three actors was a fabulous experience. I was thoroughly pampered. They have been very sweet to me and I just loved it,” she said.
