Saiyami Kher, the actress who is going to make her Debut with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s film ‘Mirzya’ calls it her as the dream launch.
Saiyami who has previously given many auditions and failed to clear has got her chance in the movie. According to Saiyami, she is a big ban of Gulzar’s work and working with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is like a blessing.
To Saiyami, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s every film will remain a cult film.
For an outsider, struggling for a break in Bollywood is much tougher and going with the flow becomes too mainstream but if a prestigious production house approaches you, there arises no question of giving it a second thought, adds Saiyami.
“I went through normal auditioning process, stood in the queue, met the casting director and was told it is for a big film. It was after two weeks when I got a call from Rakeysh Sir and that’s how it all started.” Told Saiyami, admitting that she had no clue what she was auditioning for.
However she admits that having worked with Mehra, she has set a new benchmark for herself in terms of directors she will work with and also has the list of directors too, she would like too work with.
“Rakeysh sir spoils you for choice as an actor. He pampers you so much and my equation with him is going to be a lifelong relationship. Now that the shooting is over, I am getting so nostalgic,” says Kher.
Dilip Shankar and Adil Hussain trained her for her role in the movie for about three months in Delhi where she went through rigorous training.
We used to start at 6.30 in the morning, do horse riding for two hours, then attend acting workshops for hours and again he same. It was one of its kinds learning experience to be away from my surroundings,” said Saiyami.
