extremely excited i mean uh words can’t explain my excitement at this point you know i do uh i do have a scene with amitabha and it was amazing it was such a good feeling feel like adhered tv overexposed uh then it becomes different hi crystal welcome to eastern eye hi how are you i’m good how are you i’m good how excited you are for your bollywood debut with cherry uh extremely excited i mean uh words can’t explain my excitement at this point you know four days to go for cherry it’s uh my debut film with uh mr bachanji and imran and i cannot have even dreamt of a better cast and a better film than this for my debut right so you know listen i’m sure in past also you must have been offered some bollywood films but what was there in cherry that you know made you say yes you know that i have to make a debut with this movie uh in the past also i have been offered body or films that’s correct but uh the script never appealed to me sometimes my character that the script would be great but i would have nothing much to do so um i mean then the character wouldn’t appeal to me so there were many many things that you know uh kept stopping me from doing various films and uh you know i used to think that what if i don’t get another film or if i don’t get another girl but i couldn’t compromise on what i felt that you know uh i deserved as an actor so i waited and uh look where we are at right so how was your experience of working with imran amazing he is so calm he is so cool he’s so knowledgeable he’s somebody you know who always knows uh something about everything so it was amazing having conversation with him and working with him was a breeze he did not make me feel uncomfortable even for a minute he made me feel so at home and you know like a part of this industry and it was my absolute pleasure to have my first coaster in my first film as uh amitabh bachanji and of course imran because i don’t think you know my ease would be uh possible if not for how amazing he is right you know in the trailer we don’t get to see you sharing any screen space with amidah butch and so so in the movie do we have we do we do you get that opportunity yes i do uh i do uh i do have a scene with amitabha and it was amazing it was such a good feeling uh yes unfortunately it’s not in any of the trailers uh because you know we’re just trying to establish snippets of everyone’s character but um yes i do have work with the amitabh in the film and my mom had come to set when i was shooting with him and she uh couldn’t stop blushing so you know how was this that you know you’re standing next to him in a scene how was that kind of feeling that you had like i’m sure there would be like a lot of nervousness to perform in front of him so you know what i was i was so prepped for this day that uh i i would was like you know what tomorrow i’m shooting with amitabha actually i’m gonna sleep well i’m gonna know all of my line so i realized all my lines i knew everything by heart you know i was like fumbly performed i tried to sleep the previous night zero sleep no sleep at all because obviously you’re just anxious from inside i woke up early went to set um and when i was shooting with him so first thing that uh he came up to me and he introduced himself he said hi amanda i know but uh that but that’s the gentleman he is he came up he introduced himself and in the and i knew my lines for sure i knew i was not going to fumble what i didn’t know is i’m going to say i am very nervous i said i’m very purpose i said oh lovely to meet you so i’m very purpose and he said what i said exactly what i mean i am so nervous but then we got down to rehearsing our lines and it was a breeze we shot our scene and i i couldn’t even believe it that night when i went back home that oh my god i just shot with the legend of bollywood i mean i can’t even call him a star superstar all of those words don’t even apply to somebody like a legend like amitabh bachchan so um i mean i was very proud of myself right yeah so because you know when because you come from a television background or there is an image that people have like you know the good boho good sister kind of thing do you think to get into bollywood it’s difficult to break that image and get a movie um i mean yes and no uh like when you have open-minded directors producers who have a vision who are creative who know that an actor can act does not matter what medium they’re acting on then it’s not difficult at all but then we come to uh directors and producers that feel like adi bahu betty tv overexposed uh then it becomes difficult because they don’t realize that tv actors come with a lot of experience uh with a lot of hard work and with a lot of masses following so uh i mean that’s your job half done you don’t have to train somebody to act you don’t have to train somebody or you don’t have to put in so much money to uh promote somebody uh you don’t have to spend on marketing because we come with that so um it depends on it has very little to do with the actor and a lot to do with uh the people casting and the uh one of the people casting i feel you know the people that approve the casting right so what’s happening next after cherry where do we see you uh after cherry uh hopefully in another film uh if not uh then i i am doing another otd show uh in february 2022 so i start filming for that in feb so a lot of more acting a lot of more uh you know just being on a set finally after this pandemic and um a lot of instagram right so crystal you know in between there were these reports that you know cherry might not get up here tequila is it will come on an ott platform uh of course it’d be now of course it’s coming in theaters again but being your debut film when you used to read such reports was it kind of disappointing um but of course yes i had hopes it was my first film i wanted as anybody dreams you want your first film to be in a theater you know on a big screen with that big surround sound so uh yes of course a little disappointment but uh essanita was not like array or qra i’m just glad kiara and uh i had faith in my uh product producer anan pandaji and amitabh who were very uh strong about supporting the theaters with this film and they said you know this film we will wait for the theaters to open because the theaters have supported films for a really long time and it is now time to pay back so uh you know i feel like this is a this is an amazing gesture by another g and amitabh we all know that obviously we are not going to get those box office numbers that uh you know normally this film would have gotten but uh what’s most important is that theaters are open again life is getting back to normal and uh theaters have supported and entertained us over years it’s our time to uh give them back right so christopher before i wrap up i’m sure your fans would like to know this any plans of making a comeback on television uh why not to be honest uh how many film actors are on television currently you know everyone comes to television to post to do so many things i would love to be a part of television i am who i am today because of television and i will never let that go uh it has trained me a lot it has helped me a lot be the actor i am be the performer i am so of course i would love to do television if it’s a character that i need to play then i would love for it to be a really strong character or really a strong script and uh more than anything else it can’t go on for years and years i’m not i don’t think i have it in me anymore i feel a more finite show is something i would be looking at right so christians was really nice chatting with you and i’m really looking forward to watch you in cherry thank you so much are you going to be going to a theater to watch it i hope i don’t think so because i’m in mumbai so right now oh damn okay cool so if by chance they open up soon to watch it till then everybody who’s not in mumbai and not in maharashtra and the theatres have opened please or 27th august oh watch thank you [Music] you
