12 years after EK CHHOTISI LOVE STORY, Aditya Seal is now returning to the big screen. From being a 14 year old boy who was discovering about birds and bees in the film, Aditya would now be playing a college-goer in this Tanushri Chattrji Bassu directed feel good affair.
The youngster admits though that there was no major struggle for him when it came to bagging PURANI JEANS. Though one would expect that a little help would perhaps have come from his EK CHHOTISI… co-star Manisha Koirala, Aditya denies any such insinuation.
"I didn't want to approach Manisha as I thought that one has to fight it out on his own," says Aditya, "Also, 10-12 years after doing a movie, it would have been very stupid of me to reconnect suddenly; especially so since I had not spoken to her for last so many years."
Still, till date, he gets teased about the 2002 film where he had played a voyeur who catches Manisha making love to her boyfriend (Ranvir Shorey) and later gets a lesson on love from her.
Says in a shy tone, "Yes, people come and say that 'Hey, you lucky guy, you must have had fun in the film'. I have to tell them though that it is different when you shoot a scene and then what comes across on screen. If my friends persist too much about sharing details then I just shoo them away stating – 'If you only want to listen to one thing then yeah, I had my fun'."
He had good fun on PURANI JEANS too where he has Tanuj Virwani and Izabelle Leite for company.
"Yes, I bagged the film a year back. I always believe that if you are focused on something and are better than decent then soon you will get your space or time. There is not dearth of jobs in industry. I am lucky enough to bag PURANI JEANS today," he says.
Now one hopes that the results are worthwhile too once this Manju Lulla film releases all over today.
