During the last eighteen months, it’s become clear that Minissha Lamba will be part of the new wave of actresses pushing through into the Bollywood A-List. With good performances in solid movies such as Corporate, Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd and Dus Kahaniyaan behind her, she will soon also be seen opposite Ranbir Kapoor.
Minissha has worked before with Bipasha Basu in Corporate and will now be opposite her again in Bachna Ae Haseeno. What is she like? “She’s the warmest and the most lovely person that one can come across,” says Minissha, “She is very friendly, down to earth and very endearing. She has one of the most beautiful smiles I’ve seen in a very long time. It’s wonderful to watch her smile.”
And what about the current golden boy, Ranbir? “I discovered that Ranbir is a riot,” she says, “He is so easy to get along with and a gentleman to the core. Working with him was fun, fabulous, and supportive. It makes your working day even more pleasurable when you’re working with the people with whom you share the same wave length.”
Meanwhile, what did Ranbir think of Minissha? “Minissha is one of those people who exudes goodness … she is an eternal optimist. She is an avid listener and followed Siddharth’s direction to the T. She helped me a lot.”
Bachna Ae Haseeno looks set to be another big summer hit.
