Marking her debut as a Bollywood actress with Madhur Bhandarkar's CALENDAR GIRLS, bong beauty Kyra Dutt has got much more than she expected! Calling this her perfect dream debut, this debutante is very excited about her upcoming film and is delighted to be a part of Bhandarkar's movie where all that happened on the sets was jalwa. In an exclusive interview with glamsham.com, Kyra spoke about her experience, her favorite actor, her unforgettable moment from the film and much more. Read on to know what more the gorgeous actress has to say…
Is CALENDAR GIRLS the kind of debut you were looking out for? Anything close to a ‘dream debut'?
You know what, it is actually better than what I had imagined for myself because quite honestly, first of all it is a Madhur Bhandarkar film and secondly, as an actress and girl, I'm very lucky to be doing a film which is woman oriented and women centric. We're not like playing props to any actors and just getting songs. It's a performance oriented role and the story also revolves around the five girls. So yes, definitely it's a dream debut for me.
“Yes, CALENDAR GIRLS is a dream debut for me”
What was your reaction when you were offered a Madhur Bhandarkar film?
I went and met Madhur ji in his office and he was like your looks definitely fit the bill so he wanted me to audition for the role. I had given 3 different auditions and I remember they had already selected the four girls and they were still looking for the character of Sharon Pinto; I remember Madhur ji saying we need a very good actress for this role, so I kept my fingers crossed and give my best in the audition and I got a call from them saying I have been selected. I was very happy & excited because I really wanted to do this film.
Can you tell us something about your character in CALENDAR GIRLS?
I can tell you a little about Sharon Pinto as I am not allowed to disclose much about the content. Sharon is this fearless, young, free-spirited kind of a girl, who is looking for an adventure in life and that is when she comes to do this calendar shoot and she comes face-to-face with all the devils of the industry. She is somebody who is very high in her morals and she has set a certain way in which she wants to follow her life, but then things get a little tough for her because she realizes that there is very little place for her morals in this industry. She has been then given a choice on what she wants to do in life and then there is a transition in her character. I can't reveal the exact incident about it. But you'll see a drastic change in her character in the first half and second half of the film. I think I've been very lucky to be able to give two sides to one character in one film.
Also the USP of CALENDAR GIRLS is the music. I think people will enjoy the film because it is a Madhur Bhandarkar film and also another plus point of the film is the music.
“Mr. Bhandarkar understands the woman psyche very well”
Madhur Bhandarkar's films are known to bring the harsh reality be it HEROINE, FASHION, PAGE 3, TRAFFIC SIGNAL. Will this also bring forth the reality of CALENDAR GIRLS?
The one thing that I've noticed working with Mr. Bhandarkar, on a personal level, is that he is somebody who really has the ability to tap into human emotions very well. He understands the woman psyche very well. If you see all his main leads, they were all well-known actresses of our industry and the character what he'd been able to give us, be it a HEROINE or FASHION; he has shown the woman emotion and the real emotions of characters very well. Even in this film, he has picked up real life incidents and emotions. I could relate to Sharon's character to a large extent because she's so believable. I think a lot of girls coming into this industry, who want to be actors or models will be able to relate to Sharon's character too. I won't say there is a direct reference to a person, but it's a direct reference to somebody you can relate to.
