"I play Shruti Kakkar. She is a girl from a middle-class
family in Delhi. She is very ambitious, focussed and hardworking.
Her priorities are set in life. She is a very sorted girl, very
straightforward and very enduring," said the actress, who
refers to the movie as a "desi Date flick".
But playing the role was not easy for her.
"I had to learn to speak like a Delhiite. My diction had
to be correct. I had to adapt a body language which is very
easy going, open and casual just like the people there,"
Delhi girls are known for their temper. Asked if her character
incorporates that too, she immediately replied: "Absolutely.
You can't mess with her or act smart with her. You can't fool
Shruti. She is just way too smart."
The actress, who made a mark with her girl-next-door looks,
was also upbeat about her styling in the new venture.
"We tried to pick street fashion. So it was very basic
girls-who-go-to-college-today dresses. Shruti is someone who
does not care about her clothes. She doesn't focus on styling.
So in the whole film, I've worn T-shirts with jootis, kurtis
with stoles, etc," she said.
Having already worked with A-listers like Shah Rukh, Shahid
and Akshay, who is the next actor on her wishlist?
"I want to work with all the actors. I am very greedy.
They are all so great," she said childishly.
As far as her Bollywood journey is concerned, she is satisfied.
"It has been very fulfilling because I am doing the kind
of work that I want to do. I am not under any pressure to do
anything. I do the films that I want to do. I have the right
to say no or yes, so I am enjoying my space," she said.
Doesn't she miss modelling?
"Now I only act. No modelling. Now I only want to be an
actor," she declared.
