If Puja essayed a college fresher in her debut movie, in “GO Goa Gone” she is cast as a college graduate trying to save herself from zombies. But unlike her first film, her role in this movie is more inclined towards action.
“I am one of the boys. I am playing this girl who finishes her college and goes with her friends. This girl is more action girl. It’s not at all like ‘F.A.L.T.U’,” Puja told IANS.
Co-directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. and produced by Illuminati films, Puja’s co-stars in the film are Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das and Saif Ali Khan.
However, despite being the most senior, Saif did not make anyone else feel inexperienced or junior, says Puja.
“Saif sir is like the senior-most amongst us but he is like a kid. He would come to the set all smiling and sit with us. So, he never made us feel that he is senior,” she said.
“I am the youngest one on the set. Kunal Khemu, Vir Das and all of them are older and senior to me. All of them have been around and we had a great time,” she added.
The actress is also excited about her first romantic role opposite Neil Nitin Mukesh in director Susi Ganeshan’s upcoming romantic thriller “Shortcut Romeo”.
Puja, 26, is keeping her fingers crossed and said that she is “hopeful” about it.
“In the first half, I get to play an extremely glamorous girl and in the second half I get to play a simple girl who comes from a poor family. I get to play two roles. It’s the same character and she gets to play two parts,” Puja said adding that Neil helped her in improvising her role.
“If people would like me for my acting, I would give credit to Neil because he really helped me,” she said.
“Shortcut Romeo” will also see actress Ameesha Patel in a negative role.
