Priya Banerjee was last seen in Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s ‘Jazbaa’ where she played an assault victim. In a crucial role, she did well in her debut affair that was directed by Sanjay Gupta. While ‘Jazbaa’ was a rather dark affair, the Canadian-Indian actress would next be seen in a much livelier film, ‘Dil Jo Na Keh Saka’. A romantic musical where she is paired with Himanshu Kohli (of ‘Yaariyaan’ fame), the film is set for release in a month from now.
Says Priya, “When I heard the film’s script, I had smile on my face all the time since it is really cute. The film is about best friends who discover love over a period of time. This is a very real film too as it has moments that you can relate to; many of these would surely have happened to you in your younger days.”
The film’s music is said to be its core strength.
“Yes, and thought it may seem like a bold proclamation but the fact is that if you loved ‘Aashiqui 2’, you would love ‘Dil Jo Na Keh Saka’ as well. It has the kind of music that touches your heart.”
Other than the fact that Priya would be seen in a genre that suits her age, she is also happy that as a leading lady she would be seen in a different light altogether by the audience. Though she was busy working on multiple films and web series during the last couple of years, there was never a time period where she felt like she was waiting for too long for her next big screen affair to strike.
“If you start thinking about it all the time then you may feel it is a waiting period. However that was never the case with me since luckily I got a lot of films and series in the interim period. I wrapped up films like ‘2016-The End’ and also ‘3 Dev’ with Karan Singh Grover, which is up for release. Then there is ‘Dheeth Patange’ which has an amazing script. I also enjoyed working on my couple of web series – ‘Rain’ and ‘Social’. So yeah, life has been busy and beautiful all this while,” says Priya with a smile.
Meanwhile, the promo of ‘Dil Jo Na Keh Saka’ is all set to release. The film releases on 17 November.
