“I wasn’t told that I’ll be doing a smooching scene in the film. I wasn’t prepared for it.? says Anjana. In fact, she was shocked to know about it. ?I was almost in tears when I came to know about it. I was so uncomfortable and nervous while doing it but Anil is a really great person and he made my work easy.?” [ Anjana Sukhani speaking about her onscreen kiss with Anil Kapoor in Salaam-e-Ishq]
“My parents wondered when I spelt out my desire to take to Bollywood. Dad settled to the idea sooner but it took Mom a while before she could digest the fact”
“Oh, Hum Dum was great fun. The entire shooting experience was more of a picnic. They were extremely co-operative. The entire atmosphere on the sets was very chilled out. We were made to feel so much at home. I didn’t experience the slightest discomfort.” [ About her debut film]
“Films were the last thing on my family’s mind; no family members were remotely connected to films. When I told my parents, my dad was cool with it, but Mom was apprehensive”, –
“I don’t want to wear tiny costumes or play a hot babe scorching the town instead, I would be happy making people laugh.”
“I was amidst huge sets, magical ambience, mega stars and seasoned performers and the only thought that I had at that moment was to be 100% competent in what I do. Though I was not intimidated by stars, I wanted to live up to expectations that I had set for myself since I knew that everyone around was just so competent! Eventually it was all OK and I could find myself relaxing.” [First day experience]
