Momal’s Sheikh’s upcoming Bollywood debut Happy Bhag Jayegi has everyone on their toes. After the trailer release, fans can hardly wait for what she has in store for them.
In a brief interview with Images, the Pakistani actor spoke about working across the border.
Images: How was your experience of working in Bollywood?
Momal Sheikh: I was very fortunate to sign up with a good team and fine actors. Many concepts were rather new to me since film is very different from television. The platform itself is a very challenging ground and makes you push yourself very hard.
I loved taking up the challenge and I’m excited to have had the opportunity to work with such sophisticated equipment and deliver to a much wider audience.
Images: Did you have any scenes with your dad? Was it daunting to work with him or an exciting opportunity?
Momal: Yes, my father and I shot a couple of scenes together. He is my mentor, my counselor and obviously my critic as well. I knew he would guide me and judge my work honestly. I’m grateful that I had him by my side during my first Bollywood venture.
Images: Can you tell us a little more about your character. We know you’re Abhay Deol’s wife but what more can you reveal?
Momal: I am playing the role of Abhay’s fiance, Zoya. An entrepreneur of a fashion house, Zoya is a strong-willed girl and holds her ground. She is confident and mature as is reflected in the way she eventually handles the odd situation she has to deal with.
I don’t want to give away too much but I will tell you this: you will be surprised by a few twists in the story, especially when Zoya plays a vital part in deciding who Happy will eventually settle for.
Images: We like your look in the trailer. Who are you wearing and who styled you?
Momal: Thank you! My stylist was Ankita, who worked with me throughout the movie and I must take this opportunity to thank her for her patience and professionalism.
Did you do any dancing in the film?
Momal: I have no dancing numbers.
Momal’s definitely upped our anticipation and we’re eager to see what she has to offer when the film hits theatres on August 19th.
