“I am in love with the camera and films,“ says Hansika Motwani, who acted as a child artiste in Koi Mil Gaya. Today, post Aap Ka Suroor, she is busy as a heroine both in Bollywood and Tollywood.
I think I look my age. People who know me well know that I am very much a 17-year-old and I act like one too! I am in standard XI, have just finished my exams, I go out with my friends for movies… I don’t think I am different.
On becoming a heroine from a child artiste
The production team of Koi Mil Gaya did get in touch with me to tell me how big I had become! Manoj Bajpai who is my co-star in Money Hai to Honey Hai was also shocked to see me play his heroine! I have played the role of his daughter in Jago! He had no words when he saw me! He was speechless!
On Celina Jaitly rumours
Celina is a sweet person to work with but frankly I have always worked in a film to work and not to make friends. I leave as soon as my work is done. I don’t known how these rumours about me checking Celina’s costumes started. Nothing of that sort has happened. I enjoyed working with Chi Chi sir (Govinda) and the entire crew of the film. They all were my seniors but I don’t really think about learning from my seniors. I just try and enjoy working with them.
On the film Money Hai to Honey Hai
I play an actress in the film, just the way I am in real life. As the film’s title suggests, all of us are in a quest of earning money… rather doing anything for money.
On her forthcoming films
I am doing two Telugu films and have signed few Hindi films. I will speak about it when my producers ask me to.
