Aarti Chabria has never worked with Manoj Bajpai before. No wonder, she couldn't help but feel ecstatic when she finally managed to share the same frame as Manoj during the making of her upcoming release DUS TOLA.
"The world knows that Manoj is a very fine actor. I have always loved his work right from the days of SATYA, ZUBEIDA to most RAAJNEETI. In fact I even loved his relatively lesser known films like ACID FACTORY and JAIL. He has always stood out in whichever film that he does."
Incidentally, Manoh Bajpai came in DUS TOLA much later than Aarti who was the first to be signed for the film.
"When I signed the film, I wasn't aware about who would be my co-star. All I knew was that that the script was great and the director was raring to go. Of course I was keeping my fingers crossed and wanted a superb actor who could help take the script to the next level."
Did that really happen with Manoj entering the scene?
"Here I was waiting with bated breath and when the news broke that he had been signed for the film, I was like 'wow'", exclaims Aarti, "See, the best part about working with Manoj is that it is more about reaction than action with him. When you have someone who gives a good performance in front of you, the simplest thing is to react. It made things easier for both of us to share that on-screen chemistry."
Well Aarti, now we would be waiting to check out this chemistry once the film releases this Friday.
