Sayani talks about playing Ranbir Kapoor’s friend in Jagga Jasoos
Sayani Gupta has earned rave reviews for her performance in Jolly LLB 2 recently. She is now all set to start promotions for her next long in making film Jagga Jasoos starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif in the leads.
Not much is known of her role currently. We hear that she plays a pivotal role and making her role interesting is the fact that she will play a 14-year-old girl in the film who is Ranbir Kapoor's friend. Sayani has had to work on her mannerism and body language to suit that of a teenager.
When asked Sayani said,”It's the best character of my life. I love dada (director Anurag Basu) to have had the imagination to see me as a little girl who is all of 14 years. I loved his audition process as well, it was so simple. He is quite a genius and this character will always be very close to my heart. People who have seen me in the look can't believe that I am not a teenager.”
Talking about her transformation she says, “I remember I had cut my hair and went for the audition and dada was quite surprised because actors don't do these things before they have gotten the part. And once I went on set on the first day of shoot, and we were deciding the look for the character, I insisted that I should cut my hair to this little bob. Ajay, Ranbir's hair stylist was all excited to chop my locks, but Dada wasn't convinced at first but I had the look so vivid in my mind, that after a while with Ranbir's help, I finally managed to convince dada. He was super happy with the look. And then I just got stuck in this short hair look for over two years now. And I love it."
The film is co-produced by Ranbir Kapoor.
