KHATTA MEETHA has released and Trisha feels that for Akshay Kumar, it would have been far more challenging as a producer since the entire set up was totally new for him.
"KHATTA MEETHA boasted of predominantly the team that has worked with Priyadarshan for years. In fact if there was an outsider on the sets, it was Akshay himself", smiles Trisha, "Since I had worked with most of the crew members in my films down South, it was a familiar territory for me. On the other hand Akshay had to work extra hard since he had to build relationships while doubling up as a producer."
When it comes to movies coming out of Bollywood, actors are said to be a lot more pampered when compared to their counterparts from South. Did she see any difference in approach while working in KHATTA MEETHA since it was Akshay Kumar's production?
"As I said, the film basically had a set up from South, so for me it was not much different", Trisha says, "Perhaps when I end up working in a totally new film that has a core Bollywood crew, I would experience some more pampering hands on."
She does admit though that she has gone past the stage when she used to get pampered.
"Guess what, my first film down South was launched by Priyadarshan years back so my days of being pampered by him have been long over", sighs Trisha, "Those were the days when I was fresh out of the world of modelling world and was getting used to films. I was spoilt and I really enjoyed that phase. Today is different though where I have moved beyond that time period. But yes, it would be fun to see how pampering happens in Bollywood world once I begin work on my next Hindi film."
