Come back! Where have you gone? Kaifwho came at a time when foreign actresses were just considered frills to the moviessteadily rose to greater heights She went on to become the queen of the marqueeworking with the best heroes in business Salman KhanAkshay KumarRanbir KapoorHrithik RoshanShah Rukh Khan and nowAamir Khan Her story has a fairytale quality to it The actress is presently quite excited about her once-in-a-lifetime role in Dhoom 3 that of a circus performer for which she went about preparing after her last filmJab Tak Hain Jaana year ago Seated on the fourth floor of Yash Raj Studios the actress is eager to talk about the third installment of the racy Dhoom franchise Her role of a gymnast is a first-of-a-kind role attempted by a Hindi film actress I have put myself out there and am waiting for the public verdict, she says Strangelythe promotions for Dhoom 3which is up for release next week appears to be very low key What is your take on this strategy Its an interesting promotion strategy that Aamir (Khan) and Adi (producer Aditya Chopra) are trying I am sure they must have had some marketing plan in mind Both feel that every film is different and the marketing strategy has to comply; they are trying something different with Dhoom 3 Its for the first time that a Hindi film heroine will be seen playing the role of a circus performer/gymnast in a film What was your reaction when the script was narrated to you It is going to be Aamir Khans best role Yesthat was my first reaction OtherwiseI could see that Adi and Victor (Vijay Krishna Acharyathe films director) were very clear about their vision and what they wanted to do And that kind of instantly jelled with me Alsothe film came to me at a time when I was really in that space to do it I could see myself playing the part right away as music and dance are a passion for me and something I enjoy tremendously I was also quite clear how I wanted to go about playing the character from the beginning It was a vision I had in my head and one which matched their vision And I had the right platform and support to do it Could you elaborate on your role in the film I am a performer in a circus which Aamir owns Its a cops-and-robbers thrillerbut there is a story weaved around it also The scale of the circus and everything shown in the film is huge Adi and Victor wanted to pitch the film on a high level and not just kind of get away with it because it was a franchise SoI also wanted to put in that effort and try to make it look a little different My intention was to look like a gymnast and perform and dance like one The song Malang in which you are performing on hoops and straps looks stunning Were you scared performing that high in the air I wasnt scared at allbecause I had prepared myself and trained with the best The only time it seemed scary was when we were shooting for it because we had trained at a lower height The altitude was higher during the shootingwe were almost 50 feet in the air What you have seen of the song is just one per centthe rest is saved for the film All the spinninghoops and straps may look impressivebut I can tell you that it was a lot harder than what it looks It takes a long time to train anything on a loop and I had to hang my body from one with only my feet around it The shots were widewith me more than 40 feet in the air no harnessno ropesnothing Did any kind of research go into your character Besides seeing some circus performancesI also got to see the performances of those who were coming down to train me These trainers came from abroad for the shooting of Malang There was a team of 30-35 people who were performing the songtraining at the same timeexecuting it and looking into the safety and co-ordination of all the other artistes who were on stage A lot of work has gone into Malang Have you see the earlier Dhoom flicks and what did you think of them I have seen both Dhoom and Dhoom 2but I liked the latter better The franchise has gotten better with every filmand I feel that should keep happening with any franchise A sequel should take the film one step higherotherwise you are just making a franchise for just the sake of it How was it working with Aamirwho is also known to be a perfectionist Aamir is an artiste who just wants to do his work Hes genuine Instead of calling him Mr Perfectionist I would say hes more genuine that anything You can see that hes putting his best in everything and doesnt come on the sets unprepared It pushes you to do equally well Is there anything that you imbibed from him as an actor The scenes in Dhoom 3 are such that it came very naturally to me But I must say that there was a lot of competition between us when shooting the Malang songespecially when we were on the hoops and straps in the circus We would see who is spinning faster or who is hanging on longer and stuff like that It was healthy and a fun competition and in that sense it was nicebecause he was putting in his work from his side and Imine What do you recall as the most memorable part of the shoot Every day of the film stands out The entire shooting was like an event and a big challenge For most part of itthere was a lot of physicality involved One had to always maintain a high level of fitness and energy and be very charged about it When the film got delayed by two-three monthswe had to maintain that fitness and energy for quite some time What was the training for a gymnast like in terms of diet and workouts A diet may work for a certain characterbut in this film I play an acrobat which means I had to be strongso I wanted my process to be that way I wanted to eat welltrainbecome strongand not lose weight quicklydiet and become thin The intention was to develop the physique of an acrobat who would be able to do these things My strength and my upper body toning were achieved with functional training Push-ups and pull-ups are essential to be able to hold your body weight on your shouldersthat does not come naturally to girls The training was veryvery different and something I am not likely to do again You can do this kind of a role only onceand I did it to the best of my ability Victor is a writer of the Dhoom seriesincluding the third installment What is his forte as a director Victors forte as a director lies in the fact that he is primarily a writer and as a writer-directorhe is close to the script Hes also very insightful and has a vision about what he takes up The film is made on a huge canvas and I guesshe has to deliver Like we all actors are up for judgement on Fridayhe will also be up for judgement as the director And then the verdict will be passed I have done my best and I know that there was nothing more that I could have done While you and Aamir are new to the Dhoom seriesAbhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra have been present throughout all the series So what was it like on the sets Both knew what they were doingbut for me it was a chance to do something new I found them to be very funny on the sets They entertain themselves a lot and keep each other occupied Theres a lot of non-stop talking between them more than anything else You are in the midst of four films now Kabir Khans PhantomSiddharth Anands Bang BangAnurag Basus Jagga Jasoos and Abhishek Kapoors Fitoor Whats happening on the front I have wrapped up one schedule of Phantom and one schedule of Jagga Jasoos Bang Bangs next shoot is scheduled for January I only hope that Hrithik (Roshan) can start shooting by then If that remains on scheduleits great If notI shall start shooting for either Kabir or Anurags film or maybe even start Gattus Fitoor All my dates are locked between these four films What is your character in Phantom like Its difficult to reveal that But what I can tell you is that the story is written by Hussain Zaidi and that the film is a fictional take on what could have happened after 26/11 You knowa particular response which could have happened after the terrorist attack The film is a tight thriller and right in Kabirs space Theres a very good and realistic vibe to the film Ranbir Kapoor is playing a detective in Jagga Jasoos What are you playing in the film I have not spoken to Basu on how he wants to project the film and meso I would not like to say much But I play a very quirky characterwho helps Ranbir (Kapoor) Basu creates a world and develops the characters for youso half your work gets done Its hard to describe the genre of the filmbut I would say that its a romantic comedy It is really nice working with himbecause he has such a clear vision Phantom and Jagga Jasoos are story based filmswhile Bang Bang has a certain amount of action You have been a part of the film industry for almost a decade Have you set any dos and donts for yourself The minute you set dos and dontsyou start curbing yourself and leave yourself no room to grow You dont leave yourself open for opportunitieswhich may allow you to grow After so many years in the film industryone develops a little more confidence I remain instinctive and try to follow my heart Besidesmy interests may vary at different times Like my interest last year may have been a little differentand the kind of movies I have signed this year are definitely different from last year I do the kind of work I have in my head and make sure that I can create that I had a vision of certain kind of spacecharacters and tones in the movies that I wanted to doand was very fortunate to have gotten those kind of movies And they were the directors I wanted to work with What kind of space is Fitoor in I really dont like to speak about films before they go on the floor as it does not make much sense Having said that the film is an intense love story A lot of aspiring actresses look up to you as a role model Who is your role model I dont think I have a role model I think the best way is to be true to yourself and to listen to yourself as you know your limitationswhat you can achieve and your dreams It should not be pre-decided as everyone has a journey and destiny that is different But remember behind my journey and destinythere has been a lot of hard work What about your plans of turning producer Not right now as I have these films to work on Besidesit takes a lot to put a film together Are you doing Dostana 2 I dont know anything about that one If given a chancewhich actor or actress from the past would you like to have dinner with Raj Kapoor He was a man ahead of his timesand a good artiste more than anything else What do you have to say about the paparazzi intrusion in your personal lifeespecially after your pictures with Ranbir went viral Most times I am okay with it as it does not really matter to me But in case of that picture which releasedit is something that has never happened before in all the years that I have been Bollywood of people intruding upon a private moment like this My being ruffled by it was natural because I didnt have a reference to it Now I will be little more prepared for it At the trailer launch of Jai Hoa member of the media asked Salman Khans reaction on Kareena Kapoor referring to you as her sister-in-law on the Koffee With Karan
