Actor Rajniesh Duggal, who has
been paired opposite actress Karisma Kapoor in Dangerous
Ishq, says he is a huge fan of the actress and has grown up
watching her films.
The 37-year-old actress is making her Bollywood comeback
with Vikram Bhatt's upcoming film and Duggal, who is 60 films
her junior says he is nostalgic about starring with her.
"I still remember being in school when she had already
started working in films. I have grown up on her films like
Prem Qaidi, Jigar, Deedar, Anari, Khuddaar, Gopi
Kishan and Raja Babu. When I was cramming through school
books, she was already making it big in the industry. Now
today when she is returning after a hiatus with Dangerous
Ishq, I am thrilled to be her leading man," Duggal told PTI.
The model-turned-actor Rajniesh, who shot to limelight
with 1920 three years back said that the actress never made
him feel like a newcomer and helped him rehearse his
"She is a pleasant personality who strikes a good balance
between being a professional and a comfortable co-actor. She
never came with any baggage or something. We rehearsed and
spent time in understanding our scenes. I have seen that for
Karisma, all that matters is how to perform in front of the
camera," he said.
Right from the day it was announced Dangerous Ishq has
been pitched as Karisma's comeback film but Duggal says his
role in the film is equally important.
"It is obvious that Dangerous Ishq is a Karisma centric
film but I too have a very important role in the film. After
all it is that of a main male lead in the film. Once I took
the narration, I knew that this role would get me a lot of
things. I can trust Vikram sir if he feels I am the right fit
for this role," he said.
Dangerous Ishq is a romantic thriller in 3D and Duggal
says one can expect a lot of thrills and suspense.
"There is a lot of drama and certain stunning
revelations. There is a lot of suspense here with good
elements of thrill. Since the film has been shot in 3D, the
thrill element takes a different preposition altogether,"
The film also stars Divya Dutta, Jimmy Shergill and will
hit the theatres on May 11.
