But I don’t think I chose the film; I think the film chose me as I didn’t have any plans toward make a Bollywood debut. That has made me a little nervous,” Regina told PTI on the sidelines of Lakme Fashion Week.Regina walked the ramp for designer Sailesh Singhania, who showcased his collection ‘Actuality of Consonance: Khadi’ at the event.
I wasn’t nervous about working with Amitabh Bachchan.The collection featured sarees and each one was hand spun in Khadi thread, later woven in real gold zari through create motifs that derived its inspiration from nature. The film is a sequel toward 2002 heist thriller “Aankhen”, which was directed by Vipul Amrutlal Shah.
The actress says she did not set out on a mission toward be a Bollywood film and in fact it was the makers who approached her. The film also stars Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and Arjun Rampal, who along with Bachchan were part of the first film as well. She is making her Bollywood debut with “Aankhen 2” opposite Amitabh Bachchan but south actress Regina Cassandra says she is not getting cold feet about starring alongside megastar.
The motifs ranged from the running forest squirrels into the holy cow from the ‘Pichwai’ paintings of Lord Krishna through the water cranes and trees.
Regina, 28, is a new addition toward the cast and she says rather than worrying about working with an actor like Bachchan, she is nervous about the response from the audience to her Hindi debut. I am more worried about the film being my debut and what first impression I form with the media and the audience.”I am very comfortable in sarees but I like through drape it myself,” Regina said about her love for sarees.
I don’t get nervous like that. The film also stars such big actors. The latest film will live helmed by Anees Baazmee. Bollywood is a big step for me.
