Sanya Malhotra who will be seen with Nawazudddin Siddiqui in an upcoming film, says she was so nervous to work with him that she watched all of his interviews before the first day of the shoot.
Sanya interacted with media at the launch of ‘The Label Ritu Kumar Store’ in Mumbai on Thursday.
Malhotra’s forthcoming film, ‘Photograph’ is a Ritesh Bhatra directorial. Talking about the film’s new announcement Sanya said, “Today only we announced ‘Photograph’ will be a part of the ‘Sundance Film Festival’ next year. And I am very excited because I was also waiting for a news of that film. ‘Photograph’ is my second film, I shot for it right after Daangal got released so it is very special to me. And I had a lot of fun working with Ritesh Bhatra, Nawazuddin Sir.
He is my favorite actor and I was so nervous to work with him. I watched all his interviews and found out how he preps for his role so that on the first day on set I feel relaxed and like I know him already.”
Sanya’s last release ‘Badhai Ho’ with Ayushman Khurrana also had been a hit since the release weekend.
When asked if she thinks the response has been more positive then her other films she said, “I am really happy with the response of the film. I won’t compare it to another but ya I am really happy that even in the 6th week of the film’s release people are still watching it and loving it.”
Talking about Ritu Kumar and the new collection, Sanya said, “Ritu Kumar is one of my favorite brands, I wore a very nice maxi dress in ‘Badhahi Ho’ and I used the same dress for the film’s poster. The collection in the new store is just perfect for the Christmas and New Year celebrations.”
Photograph starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra is amongst the 112 selected movies that are set to be screened at Sundance film festival.
