Nazia Hussain will soon be seen paired opposite Shakti Samanta’s grandson Aditya in ‘Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai’.
Nargis Dutt’s grand niece Nazia made her debut with a film titled ‘Say Yes To Love’. Undoubtedly, being Sanjay Dutt’s niece she should get everything on a platter. “No, not at all. In fact, I want to make my career on my own talent. I do not want to take any help from anybody. What I feel is if I am focused and determined and concentrate on work, I will definitely make it. When you make a position for yourself on your own it feels great. This is my second film and I am pinning a definite hope…,” says Nazia.
Nazia adds, “I enjoyed working with Ashim Samanta who treated me like his own daughter. He would take Aditya and me out for ice cream while shooting in Poland. In fact, I dominated Aditya. His father is the producer but Aditya did not put on any pompous air about it. It was fun shooting with him. After every take he would ask me if his take was okay. He is open to suggestions.”
Talking about the movie, she says, “I had to audition twice. In the first audition, I just spoke a few lines but in the next I was asked to enact a full scene. I play the character of a Rajput girl. This romantic tale is very interesting. Initially, it took some time for Aditya and me to open up. Aditya is a quiet guy, while I am a garrulous girl. For me pleasure and work both go together. I can never concentrate if the atmosphere is very serious. A little later, even Aditya was all game for fun.”
So the reel couple have turned into real lovers as well? Blushingly, she answers, “No, we are just good friends and we enjoyed shooting together. Our chemistry on screen is undoubtedly visible. Aditya is mischievous in his own ways. The film will speak for our hard work.”
Nazia is open to doing sexy scenes. “Yes! I am not in favour of showcasing my physical attributes unnecessarily. I don’t mind donning a sexy avatar as long as it will not look vulgar. I am open to scenes if they are the demand of the script. I just do not want to shed clothes unnecessarily in order to show my personality. As an actor, one needs to represent the character one plays in a particular film. So, even for smooching scenes I would not like to do a ‘faltu’ smooch shot,” she explains.
About her future films, she says, “I am in no hurry. I am waiting for ‘YJMH’ to release and concentrating on its promotions. I have come here to stay. Though I am being offered a few films, I am just reading scripts and nothing has been finalized.”
Last but not the least, Nazia wants to make it on to the Bollywood map. “Yes! At present, I am keen on making my career graph stronger. Marriage or love can happen at a later stage. Being single means better concentration,” she concludes.
