Tell us something about your role in Chase.
Chase is an action thriller .The movie is the struggle of Sohail who is accused wrongly of a murder and is caught in the trap set by some of the most influential people in the city. I play the character of Surabhee who is a journalist as well as Sohail’s girlfriend. She endangers everything dear to her in the process of helping Sohail to set himself free.
How was your experience working with director Jagmohan Mundhra?
I had an amazing experience working with Jag Ji. He has directed the movie very well and I am condident that the audiences are going to love the movie.
There has been a certain speculation going on that you and Anuuj shot for some hot and steamy love-making scenes…
No this not true. I have shot for scenes which were necessary for the story of the film. We were required to shoot for some love-making scenes but I think almost all the movies that are being made nowadays have such scenes.
What was your experience being cast opposite Anuuj?
Anuuj is a delight to work it. He managed to juggle his roles of being an actor and a producer very successfully. We had lots of fun during the making of the movie in Mumbai andShrinagar where had to shoot for some song sequences.
This is an action-thriller movie and you are playing a love interest of the lead hero. So is your role secondary compared to others who shot for the action sequences?
Absolutely not. I have been assigned a very good role in the movie. My character is sketched as per the storyline and inspite of it being a complete action thriller movie I had to work a lot for it.
Do you think the audience will appreciate the movie?
I am very confident that the audience will appreciate the movie as all of us have worked very hard in making the movie. Jag Ji has done a fantastic job directing the movie. I am sure that the audience won’t be disappointed after seeing the movie.
