Sayani Gupta is an actress who has proved her mettle as an actress in the short span of time she has been in the film industry. In every role regardless of its premise, she has gone into to earn rave reviews including the most recent in JOLLY LLB 2, where she donned a unique look for the role.
Internationally too the actress has already won an award for her performance in the short film LEECHES. Interestingly Sayani’s next with with Naseeruddin Shah is an Indo-British production.
While she is slowly establishing herself in international space, her next in Bollywood is JAGGA JASOOS.
Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer JAGGA JASOOS is one of the most awaited movies of this year and guess what Sayani will be seen donning a special role in this film.
So far we have mostly seen actors playing older character but Sayani will be playing a teenager in the film. As per our reliable source, Sayani will play a 14-year-old girl in the film who is Ranbir Kapoor's friend. Interestingly she is one of the very few actors who can pull off a pregnant woman's part (in JOLLY LLB 2) and also play a 14-year-old girl (JAGGA JASOOS) quite effortlessly.
Sayani has had to work on her mannerisms and body language to suit that of a teenager.
Confirming the same Sayani said, “It's the best casting of my life. I love dada (Anurag Basu) to have had the imagination to see me as a little girl who is all of 14 years. He is quite a genius and this character will always be very close to my heart. People who have seen me in the look can't believe that I am not a teen. Haha... I remember I had cut my hair and went for the audition and dada was quite surprised because actors don't do these things before they have gotten the part. And once I went on set on the first day of shoot, and we were deciding the look for the character, I insisted that I should cut my hair in this little bob. Ajay, Ranbir's hair stylist was all excited to chop my locks, but Dada wasn't convinced at first but I had the look so vivid in my mind, that after a while with Ranbir's help, I finally managed to convince Dada. He was super happy with the look. And then I just got stuck in this short hair look for over two years now and now I love it.”
