My experience with illness came in handy - Shaana
In a week from now, Shaana would be witness to her Big Friday. She would be seen sharing stage with none other than Big B in BHOOTHNATH and would have much more screen presence than what audience saw of her as Laila in NAMASTEY LONDON. As Katrina Kaif's friend, she was noticed for sure and the result was BHOOTHNATH where she plays Amitabh Bachchan's daughter in law and Priyanshu Chatterjee's wife.
"At the moment, time is just flying by. I am going through the motions and letting it all sink in that in a few days from now, I would be witness to my big release", says Shaana who has been fascinated by the world of Bollywood flicks ever since she can remember.
However, acting in front of camera isn't the only thing which fascinates this half Gujarati-half Swiss girl. Apparently she is a writer as well and ensures that she finds times to pen her thoughts. "That's true, I have a passion of writing stuff as well", reveals Shaana, "And I won't really bluff that it is hidden or anything since writing is something that I have been pursuing for quite some time. I have been writing poems whereas movie scripting is something which I am involving myself as well."
Any particular subject that she is exploring?
"Some time back I was ill for a long time", Shaana says in a soft tone, "While lying down on a bed, there were quite a few thoughts which used to strike my mind. I used to wonder about a lot of things as life took a different meaning in those days. This is when I started taking life more seriously and reflected a lot in its true meaning. These are the thoughts which form the germ of this script I am writing as my experience with illness came in handy."
How is the script shaping up? Considering the fact that it deals with illness, would it be a grim/dark picture in the making?
Laughs Shaana, "Arrey, not at all. My narrative would be more in a comical manner rather than turning too intense. This matter is close to my heart and I don't want an overtly serious tale to be told."
