Bollywood beauty Amruta Khanvilkar said that she really enjoyed working with superstar Alia Bhatt in their latest offering "Raazi". The actress disclosed all this in the latest interview with the media people. Amruta added up that the truth that she is down to earth reveals her upbringing.
She stated that aside from the film's tale, this well-known personality Meghna Gulzar was one of the main causes of her taking up the project.
She added that she had never donned the character of a Pakistani Muslim in the past and donning a real-life role was very exciting.
"Every day was an enriching learning experience - be it speaking language (Urdu dialect) or being around Meghna ma'am or shooting scenes with Alia. The entire experience was enthralling," she also said.
The tale of the flick is based on Harinder Sikka's popular book "Calling Sehmat", "Raazi" circles around a young Kashmiri girl who ties the nuptial knot to a Pakistani Army officer. She gets married to him to get inside details regarding the neighbouring nation to defend her own.
When media people asked her question that how she felt working with Alia, she answered, "I believe she is an extremely secure actor and an extremely receiving and giving actor. Her performance in 'Raazi' speaks volumes of her talent. This girl who in just 25 years of age has achieved so much in such less time and has seen stardom like no one else her age - but despite all this, she is so grounded, which truly reflects her upbringing."
The actress, who has also worked in popular projects like "Golmaal", "Nach Baliye 7", season two of "24", also called Alia "a gracious and cheerful human being."
"There are totally no airs about this girl. She makes all her co-stars feel extremely comfortable - I too shared a good bond with her throughout the shoot," stated Amruta.
She added up that doing a flick with Meghna was her dream as she remained the main reasons behind working in this film.
She was exactly my 'bucket-list' director as working with her means catching up new things on a daily basis.
"There was so much of a detailed work going on in every department, that as an actor, it made our jobs very easy. One thing I absolutely love about her is that she is the most composed and calm director I have ever worked with."
After the film, Amruta took a few days off from her work.
