New teenage sensation Hansika Motwani is certainly heading places and will soon be seen in Money Hai to Honey Hai with many stars including Govinda and Celina Jaitley. What’s it been like working with him? “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. Working with Govinda is an experience in itself. When people ask me as to how I feel romancing a much older person like him on screen, I really feel funny. Acting, after all, is about playing a character and I can even play an 80-year-old woman with ease on screen. Moreover, when you are working with an actor like Govinda, you end up giving your 110 per cent.”
What role does Hansika play in the movie? “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.”
Hansika is set to turn a few heads in the movie. Previously seen as a plump young girl in a number of TV serials, Hansika has suddenly grown up and will be seen emerging from the sea in a bikini in the classic Hollywood style.
Hansika made her Bollywood debut in Aap Ka Suroor — The Real Love Story which was well received all across India and has also appeared in a Kannada film Bindaas.
Has Hansika always seen herself as a Bollywood star? “I’ve always wanted to be an actor! I was a child actor and since then I knew that I’ll be a part of the film industry sooner or later!” she says.
