On a festive trail

Amrita Rao wears a traditional hue for her forthcoming `Vivah', finds SYEDA FARIDA



PRETTY POSE Amrita Rao in `Vivah'

The kitschy tomboy of Main Hoon Na takes on a traditional hue for Sooraj Barjatiya's Vivah. Drenched in traditional haute hues-salwar kameez and saris by Anna Singh for the small town girl role, Amrita Rao is again all set to scorch the box office this time around. "Working for the Rajshree Productions is a childhood dream come true. I grew up watching Maine Pyar Kiya and Hum Apke Hain Kaun. Rajshree banner was special as they present the heroine in the most desirable manner," says Amrita. Here she plays a small town girl from Madhupur and the premise is arranged marriage that blooms into love after the rich boy (Shahid Kapur) and the rishta from the well-heeled family lands up.

In a celluloid world filled with love triangles and campus love, Vivah sure spools a hatke story. "The concept does prevail on a large scale but nobody has made a love story based on the premise," she says. Amrita adds about co-star Kapur, "This is my fourth film with Shahid. He is Prem, different from the one of MPK but the qualities are the same. Any girl would fall in love with the character for all the bholapan."

Apart from the screenplay watch out for the music, says the actress. Ravindra Jain comes back with some melodic notes. "The music is different from what you hear in current flicks. Vivah's music stands out for the melody and lyrics," says Amrita.

Yet another reason for excitement is the fact that this will be the first film of the artiste to be dubbed in Telugu. "The dubbed film will be called Parinayam. I am glad for the fact that I will be reaching out to the larger film-going audience out here. I am often confused of being Telugu speaking because of my surname. I have a Kannada-Konkani parentage," she explains.

Currently looking forward to E. Niwas' film that hits the floor in November, Amrita Rao is as elated as regards working for South Indian films. "I am open to doing the films if the script is nice," she says.

And the basic question. Her vivaha? "No I am not seeing anyone. It doesn't matter if it is an arranged or love marriage as long as I get enough time to know the person and the person has striking qualities to spend time with," says the actress.
