Though Sarah Jane Dias has a Miss India title to her name, she confesses that the world of modelling and being a beauty queen is totally different from the challenge of facing the camera for a film. And even though she may have met many a celebrity in her way up the ladder, Sarah admits that she had cold feet when it came to sharing screen space with established Bollywood stars.
This is the reason why even though during her initial years on television she had closely interacted with the likes of Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Ranbir Kapoor and John Abraham amongst others, when it came to her stint with the big screen, Sarah Jane Dias was truly star struck.
"I couldn't pretend not to be enamoured by the presence of Abhishek and Kangna. They have been around for so long", smiles Sarah, "I was of course very star struck. Abhishek especially is such a down to earth and a giving person. He just made my life a lot easier on the sets as on some days we had to shoot for 14-16 hours. For someone who is just starting off, it was good to have him around."
Fondly looking back at the entire experience of doing her first film (GAME) with Abhishek, Sarah says, "He would laugh and joke about everything which made me very-very comfortable with him. Also, I guess being jovial comes naturally to him as he wasn't even going out of his way to make me feel special."
Well lady, hope the sentiments stay on when you move to your next co-star.
