NEW DELHI: After acting in several Telugu films over a decade, actor Charmme Kaur will finally make her Bollywood debut in Amitabh Bachchan's much talked about Bbuddhah…Hoga Terra Baap set for release in theatres across the country this Friday.
Sharing her experience of working with the legendary actor in the film that marks his return to an angry young man's role, Charmme describes Amitabh Bachchan as an extraordinary artist and a fantastic human being.
“For quite some time Amitji has not been seen in films as an angry man. When I saw Big B give one of his shots dressed flamboyantly in a colourful coat, yellow scarf and shoes and a jazzy belt I was taken back to his films of the 1980s and '90s in which he used to beat up goons black and blue even while being dressed impeccably.”
In the film that has both action and romance, Charmme is playing Raveena Tandon's daughter. “Amrita basically is a happy-go-lucky character. She is so outspoken that when Amitji asks her how he is looking, she unhesitatingly says he is looking sexy. In another scene she says every girl would like her boyfriend to be like him. Amrita and Viju (Amitabh Bachchan) are in a friendly relationship. Actually Amrita is confused whether Viju is her daddy or not. For the rest, you would have to watch the movie!”
Like other actors, Charmme was quite jittery before giving her first shot with the Big B.
“But all my nervousness vanished after meeting the soft-spoken actor. Though he is such a big star, Amitji has no airs. In fact, he gives space to other actors and respects them for their craft. Even while facing an actor of his calibre and experience, it is important to showcase your talent and be confident and show self-belief. I have given one of my best performances and tried to look my best.”
Luckily for her, Charmme was known to director Puri Jagannadh who was aware of her acting calibre and knew how to use her potential as an actor.
“Some actors get the most perfect launch during their career but later do not appear in any movie. If you have the talent you will always be recognised by the audience who will make or break you,” says she.
