Sanjay Dutt, Manisha Koirala, Jackie Shroff, Chunky Panday, Ali Fazal, and Amyra Dastur starrer Prassthanam will hit the screens on 20th September 2019. We recently met Amyra and spoke to her about the film and her experience of working with senior actors.
When we asked her how nervous or excited she is for the film, the actress said, “I don’t know, now I feel like whatever has to happen will happen. If it’s good the audience will like it and if it’s not good they are not going to like it. But, it’s actually hitting me now a little bit. Fingers crossed, that’s it you can keep hoping.”
When asked her if she has scenes with Sanjay Dutt, Manisha Koirala, and other actors and how nervous she was to work with them, Amyra said, “I think there’s more excitement when you get star struck. Manisha ma’am is so stunning in real life, I used to stand next to her and I was just staring at her.”
“With Sanjay sir and Jackie sir, you can see that their friendship is mind-blowing. They have this proper bromance going on and they keep cracking jokes. They are the actors who before a really serious scene or a dramatic scene they will be cracking the funniest joke and suddenly they are pointing guns and killing each other. Me and Ali (Fazal) were just crying of laughter and we were like we can’t take right now it’s too funny. It’s an experience and a dream come true seeing your bachpan ka hero in front of you,” she added.
Directed by Deva Katta, Prassthanam is a remake of a Telugu film of the same name. The original film was a hit at the box office and was also helmed by Deva Katta. Now let’s wait and watch what response the Hindi remake will get.
