Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT - Rishabh Suri

Amyra Das­tur might not have had the ideal start to her Bol­ly­wood ca­reer, with her de­but film, Is­saq (2013) not work­ing at the box of­fice, but the ac­tor is glad that her ca­reer is back on track. Af­ter work­ing in Kung Fu Yoga op­po­site Jackie Chan and Sonu Sood, and in Mr X (2015) with Em­raan Hashmi, the 24-year-old will soon be seen shar­ing the screen with Rishi Kapoor in Leena Ya­dav’s Ra­jma Chawal and with Saif

Hav­ing been a part of the Tamil ro­man­tic-thriller Ane­gan (2015), and learned the ropes of act­ing from the in­dus­try down south, she shares how her ex­pe­ri­ence there has been, so far.

“Learn­ing the lan­guage (Tamil) is tough. Also, the cul­ture there is dif­fer­ent, and the body lan­guage, too, changes. The roles of­fered to me in the south have re­served body lan­guage,” she says, be­fore adding, “Films there have given me a chance to show my tal­ent In Bol­ly­wood which were of­fered. In the south­ern films I have done, the parts of­fered were juicier. I gen­uinely care about the char­ac­ter my role has. I don’t want to do the glam­orous thing; I am not com­fort­able do­ing that.”

Mean­while, the muchan­tic­i­pated Kaalakaandi, hav­ing run into trou­ble with the Cen­sor Board over some cuts, is yet to get a re­lease date. “I am wait­ing for Kaalakaandi to re­lease. I have two more Tel­ugu films set to re­lease next year ” says Amyra
