When Sophie Choudhury started buying sweets for the cast and crew on the set of Alibaug, at first everyone just accepted it — but when it continued, one of them struck up the courage to ask why — “I want everyone to have sweet memories and look forward to many more such moments of sharing and giving because that is what life is all about,” she explained.
Well that’s certainly a philosophy we should all take more notice of and the crew members agreed. “We have neither forgotten her gesture nor her words,” one of them said.
In fact, Sophie worked hard on set to bring the cast and crew together and to make it a happy place to work, arranging lunches and so on. When asked later about her spontaneous acts of kindness on the production, she said, “It was nothing really. It was great working with the entire crew and I wanted everyone to have fond memories of it. I am looking forward to Alibaug now. We used to look forward to the shoot everyday and loved spending time together. It was an emotional bonding for us. Recently when we celebrated Parveen Dabaas‘s birthday, we were watching the promos of the film and everyone literally had tears in their eyes including Sanjay Gupta. That was the bonding we had on the sets.”
How is Sophie’s career progressing? “I am very happy with the kind of roles that I am getting. I was just a VJ on channel V and never imagined I would come this far. I was born and brought up in London and had no godfather here. Look where I am today. I am getting substantial roles. I am happy with them.”
Sophie will soon be seen also in Daddy Cool and Freeze. It’s also rumoured that she will be teaming up at some stage with Black Eyed Peas’ Will I. Am for a track. They met in London and hit it off together.
