Patcy N in Mumbai
You saw this Australian actress play Aarti Menon in Aisha. Now, she will be seen shaking her booty in Shake It Saiyaan in David Dhawan's Rascals.
Lisa Haydon plays one of the lead roles in the film, that has the likes of Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn, Kangna Ranaut and Arjun Rampal.
Lisa talks to Patcy N about what it's like being in a comic movie, in Bollywood, acting with some of the bigger names in the industry.
How did Aisha change your life and career?
Aisha was a very good place to start. I was keen to be part of the project because it was a fashionable movie and I was comfortable working with lots of people that I knew from before. It didn't change my life in a huge way, but it was a good start; if I had not done Aisha I would probably not be doing Rascals.
'I am very lucky to share screen space with Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn'
In one of our interviews you said your friends pressed you to do a comic film since you have great comic timing. Was that the reason you signed up for a comic film?
I took up Rascals because I like David (Dhawan, director) sir and I liked the script when he came to me with it. It just happened to be a comedy, which is the genre I like very much so that was very exciting for me.
What specially interested you in Rascals?
I am very lucky to share screen space and learn from legendary actors like Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn. That was definitely a plus point. But the reason I took the film was because I wanted to work in a comedy film and I wanted to work with David sir. Besides, I thought my character was very funny.
'I am not here to steal anyone's limelight'
'Sanjay Dutt is the kind of person who makes everyone around him comfortable'
'This is my first item number'
Working with Bosco-Cesar on choreography was also amazing. Actually it was fun just doing rehearsals because I got to dance so much. I am glad that the song is getting a good response.
