Shaana DiyaShaana Diya, the young actor who made her debut in NAMASTEY LONDON and would now be seen in a bigger role in BHOOTHNATH, is all praises for Amitabh Bachchan. In this Vivek Sharma directed film Shaana plays Priyanshu Chatterjee's wife and hence Big B's daughter in law.

'BHOOTHNATH was just my second Bollywood film and I was required to share platform with none less than Amitabh Bachchan. I have quite a few scenes with him and I was apprehensive about how it would be working him', recollects Shaana who has prominently lived in Switzerland followed by London and has now made Mumbai as her base.

'However, to my pleasant surprise he was always so helpful on the sets. There was never a minute when he wasn't being his natural self out there', says Shaana fondly, 'Even though he comes with decades of experience and had relatively newer actors around him, he was always a thorough gentleman and never demonstrated any airs.'

With a mixed lineage of a Gujarati mother and a Swiss Jew father, Shaana is in her early 20s and has been a part of a few independent films in New York before she set her eyes on Bollywood. Though she had a small part in NAMASTEY LONDON, she was noticed as a result of which BHOOTHNATH came calling.

Since BHOOTHNATH is primarily a film about a ghost (played by Amitabh Bachchan) and the relationship he shares with a child (Aman Siddiqui), doesn't she feel that her performance has the risk of going unnoticed?

'I agree that the film has Mr. Bachchan as the central protagonist and the child plays a major role in the film. Regardless of this, I do hope that I will be noticed. In any case, since the film has number of male actors with Mr. Bachchan, Aman, Priyanshu, Rajpal Yadav, Satish Shah and Shah Rukh Khan, my as well as Juhi Chawla's presence as the only female females would bring in a different flavour to BHOOTHNATH', smiles Shaana.
