Mumbai, Jan 8 () Rewati Limaye, who made her Bollywood debut with Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘India Lockdown’, will next be seen in ‘Kuttey’, playing the role of Arjun Kapoor’s wife in the action thriller. She spoke about her role and praised Arjun.
“Working with Arjun Kapoor was fantastic. Actually, I was a little nervous when I went on the set the first day because he is a very big star and this was just my second project. Arjun Kapoor is one of the most down-to-earth actors I’ve seen. The first time he came on set, he actually introduced himself to us. It was very kind of him. Also, he doesn’t have any attitude and is a gentleman,” she said.
“He is not like one of those actors who would come on the set, complete their work and go. He would usually stay with everyone and was concerned about the scene and outfits that he and his partner were wearing. He thinks of everything from a 360-degree perspective. I really appreciate him for that,” she added.
Sharing details about her character and her experience, she said: “My character is of a simple lady who takes care of the house and the family. Her husband (Arjun Kapoor) is a cop and he has a busy lifestyle but like any wife, she has expectations from her husband and keeps nagging him about not spending enough time with her.”
She added: “My part of the film has been shot in and around Mumbai. We shot it in studios, auditoriums, roads, big apartments and most of it was in car. That was a very unique experience for me because shooting in a moving car also comes with its challenges. However, it gave me a chance to interact with Arjun more. Though all my scenes are only with Arjun, I also wanted to share the screen with Tabu ma’am, Naseeruddin (Shah) sir, and Konkona Sen. However, I am grateful for whatever I got.”
Rewati complimented director Aasaman Bharadwaj too for making it a smooth journey for her. She said: “Initially, I was a bit nervous to even start a conversation with him but he is so approachable and he lets you be who you are. He would always give you the space to try new things. He made the whole set so comfortable for everyone which made a lot of difference.”
“In fact, I remember when there was a dialogue and I told it my way, he appreciated me and told me that this was better. When it was my last day of the shoot I went to change and when I came out I saw everyone stayed back for me and they praised me. It meant a lot because giving so much importance to every character is a big thing,” she concluded.
