Preetika Chawla's Interview

Mumbai Calling’ fame Preetika Chawla is making her Bollywood debut  with Makrand Deshpande’s ‘Shahrukh Bola Khoobsurat Hai Tu’. She is playing a florist role whose life changes after Shahrukh Khan tells her that she is beautiful. Here is excerpts from her interview in which bubbly girl Preetika talks about her journey so far.

Tell us bit about your background?

After schooling at Welham Girls School, Dehradun, I decided not to go to college and enrolled instead in a BA honors’ correspondence course at Delhi University. I worked for a magazine when I was in first year of my college. In the second year, I joined Blue Mango Films, a production house. Then I came to Mumbai to visit my sister, who was involved in the production of ‘Me, Grandad and an Elephant’ at Prithvi Theater. Once one of the actors didn’t turn up and I stepped in for the performance. Makarand noticed me and offered a lead role in his movie.

Share your experience while working with Makrand Deshpande and Afzaal Khan.
It was very enriching experience. Mac (Makarand Deshpande) is a easy going director and I never felt any pressure working with him. He is a balanced director. Afzaal is a fabulous actor. I learned a lot from him. Whole cast and crew of ‘Shahrukh Bola Khoobsurat Hai Tu’ is very helpful and is like a family to me.

What kind of girl Laali is?
Laali is an innocent girl who sells flower on road to earn money. She is a die-fan of Shahrukh. Laali’s life changes when one fine day a car stops and someone from inside the car tells her ‘Khubsurat Hai Tu’.

Shahrukh Bola Khoobsurat Hai Tu…what did you say to him?

Laali gets surprised to see her Idol, she faints after Shahrukh says khoobsurat hai tu and hence she doesn’t get an opportunity to say anything to Shahrukh(smiles).

In Bollywood it is said that only Shahrukh or Sex sells. Is that the reason your film has Shahrukh name?

What do you like to do besides acting?
I love watching television, play scrabble on internet. I spend at least 6 hours per day in rehearsals. I like to cook. I am bad in networking but whenever I get time I check Facebook.

Tell us a few things that you hate about television industry and why?
I am a new bee in this industry, it’s too early to comment on this. I’ve met wonderful people so far, touch wood.

The worst advice anyone has ever given you?
I never have had any bad advice. Thank god everyone in my life is so helpful.

Where do you see yourself after the release of Shahrukh Bola Khoobsurat Hai Tu?
Hoping to get many offers. Direction too is around the corner. I’ve left everything on fate.
