It was pretty much a 'luck by chance' moment for Armaan Jain when he bagged an offer to play the main lead in LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL. Though he was gearing up for some acting and dance classes to get ready for his stint as an actor, there was no looking back for the Kapoor scion when the script of LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL was read out to him.
'I knew it instantly that I had to do this film since it fulfilled all my basic criteria, which is a good script, good character and a good director. These were my key priority and focus areas and fortunately, Arif Ali brought it all together with LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL,' says Armaan.
For someone who had been associated with Dharma Productions, Armaan does acknowledge that there were some other scripts too that had come his way before LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL came calling.
'However, I was not mentally prepared to do any film. I was very young and had not even met any director. I was just not ready to respond to any script and when I got to know about LEKAR HUM DEEWANA DIL, I wasn't sure how I would respond to it,' he says.
As was destined, he went on to sign the film a couple of years ago and hasn't looked back ever since then.
He says, 'My learning has been on the job via training and a lot of workshops. Arif sir wanted to make sure that we were all well prepared. For me, acting has been a discovery and I am learning throughout since no knowledge is enough. However, I do want to go through my acting and dancing classes whenever I get time; that's something which hasn't left my mind yet.'
While he does that, one looks forward to this Saif Ali Khan, Dinesh Vijan and Sunil Lulla production hitting the screens on 4th July. The film also marks the Bollywood debut of newcomer Deeksha Seth.
