Bollywood role came without any effort: Jennifer Winget

Post by -*Fenil*- on 2014-10-17, 17:02

Like many of her peers from television, Jennifer
Winget is ready to move to the big screen.
However, unlike Sushant Singh Rajput ,
Ayushmann Khurrana or Manish Paul , she didn't
have to wait long for the transition.
"It happened so suddenly," she said in disbelief
about getting a role in "Phir Se", to be directed by
Kunal Kohli , who's also making his acting debut
with the movie.
"I don't know why Kunal Kohli thought of me for
'Phir Se'. But he did. I got the role without any
effort. I just got a call and in the second meeting
he asked me to do a scene. That was it," she
Jennifer has been doing television for many years
now -- and her latest serial has been
" Saraswatichandra ".
"I've virtually grown up in the television industry.
I love the medium, and to say I'm moving on,
would be wrong. Basically, I love to act. The
medium is not important. It's a feature film now.
It might again be a serial after that," she said.
Jennifer looks back on the experience of doing
" Saraswatichandra " with much pleasure.
"There were two different phases in the life of
' Saraswatichandra '. The first phase was when
Sanjay Leela Bhansali was the producer. He is a
dream director and a master creator. To have him
on board was a dream come true for me. When
the producer changed, we moved on to another
phase. I had no complaints. I enjoyed both the
phases equally," she said.
Now she's all geared up for the movie experience.
"Do you know that I did a couple films as a child?
But 'Phir Se' is my first film as a leading lady.
It's such a cute film with a terrific role for me. I
couldn't have hoped for anything better."
What Jennifer likes the best is that she gets to
play her own age.
"Neither Kunal nor I have to pretend to be
younger or older. So that immediately puts us in
a comfortable zone. We need that kind of
confidence because we are both making our
debut. It's scary and at the same time exciting,"
she said.
"Phir Se" would be shot in London and Jennifer is
looking forward to that.
"I've this karmic connection with London. I was in
London to shoot ' Saraswatichandra ' last year.
Now I'm going to be there to shoot 'Phir Se'. It's
going to be really cold in December in London.
But the unit is so lovely. I am going to be
surrounded by warmth," said the actress, who is
married to Karan Singh Grover .
How do the husband and wife manage to find
time for one another?
"I know the hours on television are unearthly. But
we manage. In a way, it's good that we are both
part of the entertainment industry. We understand
each other's schedules. Now that I'm doing a
film, I'll have to deal with a little less madness in
my working hours," Jennifer said.
