"I always wanted to do a masala film"
By Joginder Tuteja
Bollywood actress Shazahn Padamsee, who will soon be seen in multi-starrer comedy film "Housefull 2", says she always wanted to work in an "out and out masala film".
The 24-year-old started her career in Bollywood with 2009 release "Rocket Singh" and later went on to do "Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji" opposite Ajay Devgn.
"I always wanted to do these kind of films. This is an out and out masala film that has all elements of a quintessential Bollywood film. There is so much fun and crazy humour here. Moreover with songs, dances and feel good moments, it makes for a perfect family entertainment," Padamsee told PTI.
"Housefull 2" is directed by Sajid Khan and is a sequel to the 2010 release of the same name. The movie hits screens on April 5.
The film will see veterans Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Chakraborty sharing the screen space with actors Akshay Kumar, Asin Thottumkal, John Abraham, Zarine Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Riteish Deshmukh and Shreyas Talpade.
Padamsee is all praises for her director and said, "Sajid Khan is an encyclopedia on Bollywood as well as Hollywood. He would share with us various anecdotes of films made in the past and present. When you have a director who is so well versed in the industry and has such great knowledge, you are further confident about your own film."
The actress also said unlike the myth that B-town actresses cannot be friends, she and her female co-stars got along well while shooting for the film.
"I don't come from filmy background and really, I don't even have a bitchy side to me. Now obviously that is disappointing for many out there who are hunting for constant scoops and scandals.
"Four of us got along wonderfully from day one. We girls would make one group and chat as if we knew each other for the longest possible time. Till date we are in touch with each other. We have become friends," she said. PTI
