Actress Suchitra Pillai has made her mark with her movie roles for a long time. To remind him, she played Priya, Saif Ali Khan’s girlfriend, in ‘Dil Chahta Hai’, and now that the film has turned 20, Suchitra has a lot to share about it. She played an important role in it and for her, this movie is very special.
As Suchitra Pillai shares: “It is an absolutely fabulous feeling because this is a movie that is very close to my heart. It’s the first I’ve ever played a major role in and even 20 years later, you know this is still the movie that people remember me for. So, it is definitely a wonderful feeling to remember year after year about ‘Dil Chahta Hai’. I will never complain about that. “
‘Dil Chahta Hai’ will arrive on August 10 at & Pictures to celebrate the iconic 20 years of this film.
Pillai remembers playing the character of Priya, a very domineering and demanding girlfriend and how despite being the complete opposite of her image on screen, she can completely relate to her.
“I am totally opposite in relationships to her. I’m definitely not the type of girlfriend guys are scared of. But when I get angry and start screaming and yelling, then there is absolutely no hope for the other person and I think this way we both look alike, ”he jokes.
The 50-year-old actress remembers how director Farhan Akhtar offered her the role and his trust in Suchitra for bringing this character to the screen.
Suchitra Pillai adds: “The role that is offered to me is another story, Farhan is a friend and when he wrote DCH, he called me and said: ‘Suchi, tu ek role kar rahi’, (you are playing a role) and I was like , ‘huh’. He said, ‘no, there is a role for you.’ And I said, ‘wow, audition’ and he said, ‘no audition, I’ve decided that you will,’ which is a wonderful thing for any actor. Even a small role, written and directed by Farhan Akhtar, can really keep you on people’s minds, 20 years later. It’s just as exciting if Farhan offered me another one hundred percent role like this, I was quick to do it. “
By sharing about the most memorable moment during his filming days, he refers to his trip to Goa and all the fun he had on the beach.
Pillai says: “I was able to be a part of all the fun and games by going to Goa. It was for a single jogging scene on the beach in Goa. And just for that scene, I have to go for a week. And it was like a party, with everyone there and at that time, my best friend and her boyfriend and so on, we had a great time, so it was work, pleasure and fun, which happened, so it was definitely enjoyable in the memory. , a good memory during the filming for sure. “
