Sayyeshaa Saigal, female debutant from Shivaay said here on Wednesday that working in the film was a learning experience for her. In an exclusive interview, she shared her experience.
For the first time, I saw a film camera on the set. I didn’t have any reference when I went to the set of Akhil (her first Telegu film) … I learnt there about the angles and lighting. However, of course, ‘Shivaay’ set up and the unit was much bigger … it was a very big learning experience for me, As I continue to work, I think I will be able to learn with every film
Asking about the experience she had working with a star like Ajay Devgn, Sayyeshaa replied,
The best part about Ajay Devgn sir is his calmness. In spite of being a superstar, he is such a humble person. If you ever have a tea with him, you won’t even realise he is such a big star.
She further added,
As an actor he is spontaneous. He didn’t have to do rehearsals before the scenes which I learnt from him. He always used to tell me throw dialogues as if you would do at home. Speak naturally and don’t overact
For the feedback of the film and the clash with Karan Johar’s “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”, the actress said,
The comments which I received so far are good. Both the films are good so both will get a good run at box office.
Sayyeshaa, grandniece of veteran actors Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu, said she took tips from them about how to prepare before going on the set.
They told me that how they used to prepare the dialogues before going to the set. They used to make notes putting right conjunctions between the lines. Saira ji suggested me to learn Odissi dance
Sayyeshaa has further finalized one script which she will be announcing soon.
