‘Ishq Kya Kya Nahi Karwa Sakta’ – This adage pretty much came true for teenager Paras Arora when he stepped into B- Town for RAJJO. While the character played by him was being enticed by the beauty of Rajjo (Kangna Ranaut), in real life it was the love for movies that made him hold on to his exams till he completed his film’s shoot.

Laughs 18-year old Paras, ‘Well, you win some, you lose some. It is a dream debut no less to begin with a film which is unconventional yet so exciting and entertaining. When I stepped into the film, I knew that the shooting would clash with my exams in March. I had to make a choice and I made an obvious one.’
He did eventually take his exams last month, results of which are awaited. Meanwhile a month from now results of the other kind would be out, what with RAJJO all set for release.
‘With a superb co-star like Kangana, it turns out to be a really comfortable environment. It may sound cliche that she put me to ease but that’s a fact. For someone who has worked in so many diverse films, it was a great learning to observe how she made the camera her companion,’ he says.

On the other hand first time director Vishwas Patil turned out to be a worthy mentor for him.
‘Vishwasji is someone who is as simple as a human being can get. Moreover he was extremely helpful as a senior on the sets who came with a definite vision of how RAJJO should look like,’ he adds, ‘Especially for my character, he guided me throughout to make it look as natural as it gets instead of being a caricature.’
