Don is the biggest Diwali attraction this year…
I am very excited about ‘Don’. ‘Don’ for me is a very exciting film for me. I hope people like it. A lot of hard work has gone in the making of the film. I hope people enjoy it.
Farhan says that you did a lot homework like learning to ride a bike and learn martial arts…
It’s a character I’ve never played before. And I really wanted it to be convincing. She plays a fighter so she should she look like a fighter. I’ve trained. I went to the gym…I wanted my body to look very fit. I wanted to ride a motorcycle. I wanted her to be a tough chick because that will make the character different from what I’ve played so far. Especially when ‘Krrish’ has just released recently where I played a simple girl next door so I wanted this to be very different. I hope it has come across that.
Your look seems to be similar to Charlie’s Angels…Your thoughts on that…
I don’t think so…I think we’ve just made what a fighter will look like. I wanted her to be very tough. It was very difficult to make Roma smile and that’s what my aim was.
Great cars, cool trains…Don has a fantastic look…Antithesis of Bollywood films…
It’s a very slick film….It’s a very cool looking beautiful film. And I am very very proud of being a part of it.
First time working with Shahrukh Khan….Would you like to share the experience….
It was fantastic. I’ve always been a huge Shahrukh fan. And for me working with him was an absolute dream. He is somebody I’ve always looked forward to being around working with. And I am really glad that I did do ‘Don’ with him.
Did you watch the earlier ‘Don’ to incorporate a few nuances of Zeenat Aman’s Roma….
I didn’t watch the film after I was supposed to do ‘Don’ because I didn’t want my character to be anything like Zeenat ji’s character. If I compared my character with her’s then I would have always fallen short. I decided I would want to do it my way.
Music of the film is rocking…especially ‘Aaj Ki Raat’ where you are featured.
I really like ‘Aaj Ki Raat’. It’s a fantastic song. I also like ‘Khaike’ a lot. That’s my favourite song. Even the ‘Don’ track is a really cool song. I really like the theme track of ‘Don’ as well. It’s very haunting and just stays in your mind.
Jaaneman releasing the same day…A lot of hype surrounding that film too…
Both the films on their own are very strong films and I am very close to the Jaaneman team. And I wish them a lot of luck. I shall go and watch ‘Jaaneman’ first day. I am really looking forward to that film as well.
‘Don’ is having a massive release overseas
It’s the kind of film, for people overseas…It will be like ‘Wow Hindi films can be made like this’. It’s a very slick film. And I hope people feel that we’ve lived upto their expectations.
