‘I WAS DIS­AP­POINTED WHEN MR. X DIDN’T DO WELL’

The de­ba­cle of Mr. X (2015) at the box-of­fice left ac­tor Am­rya Das­tur (be­low) wor­ried about her fu­ture. But, she says that the ex­pe­ri­ence taught her to keep ex­pec­ta­tions aside and now she firmly be­lieves that hard work will speak for her.

“I al­ways wanted to work with Em­raan Hashmi. So imag­ine my hap­pi­ness when Mr. X was of­fered to me. I gave my 100 per­cent but when the film didn’t do well, I was dis­ap­pointed. But I’ve learnt my les­son now and have de­cided to work hard and not think about the re­sult. I want my au­di­ence to love my films and even if only one per­son does it, then I’ll feel that my work has paid off,” smiles Am­rya, who was last seen in the Jackie Chan star­rer Kung Fu Yoga.

The ac­tor says that her Kung Fu Yoga stint has brought her fame and is get­ting her good of­fers. “I am tak­ing time to de­cide on what­ever is be­ing of­fered to me. I don’t want to be just a pretty face on screen,” she says, adding, “As an ac­tor, I am look­ing for meaty roles. In all my films till date, I ac­tu­ally had proper parts to play, both in Bol­ly­wood and films down south,” says the 22-year-old ac­tor.

At the mo­ment, Am­rya is work­ing in a Tamil film and if things fall in place, then, she will also sign a Tel­ugu film. “Yes I’m ex­cited about work­ing with San­thanam in the Tamil film (Odi Odi Uzhaikkanum). As far as the Tel­ugu film is con­cerned, I can’t re­veal much about the project,” says Am­rya.
