Even in her wildest dreams, Krystle D’Souza says she couldn’t have imagined that she would make her Bollywood debut with Indian film legend Amitabh Bachchan. For the unspoken, the actress who made her fanbase through a television show will be making her Bollywood debut with Chehre.
In a recent conversation, the actress says that meeting the legend and starting a conversation with him might have been a wordless moment for her, but a thoughtful gesture from Big B changed everything. This is what he said.
While speaking to IANS, Krystle D’Souza said: “I can’t even begin to tell you how nervous I was and it was the first time my mother joined me on the first day of filming. Of course, my mother also dreamed of meeting Mr. Bachchan, as we are a family of Bachchan fans. But when I first saw him, that aura that he has, it made me so nervous and for a moment I didn’t know how to start the conversation. My eyes were wide and I saw him … that man with the baritone voice. “
Krystle D’Souza continued: “He walked up to me and said, ‘Hi Krystle, I’m Amitabh Bachchan, it’s nice to meet you!’ And then the lord smiled. I think it was for me to realize that he is such a humble and tolerant individual and that he is trying to relieve me. Since then, I felt really comfortable with everyone. “
The Chehre actress added: “We have a great mix of actors from two generations in the same movie. On the one hand, I had the opportunity to work with our all-time favorite, Emraan Hashmi, and on the other hand, I also worked with veterans like Annu Kapoor and Raghuvir Yadav, among others. Honestly speaking, it couldn’t have been a better debut for me. “
Krystle D’Souza plays Emraan’s love interest in the film ‘Chehre’, a mystery thriller directed by Rumi Jaffery. The actress began her career with television shows and became a household name for ‘Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai’, ‘Ekk Nayi Pehchaan’ and ‘Belan Wali Bahu’.
The premiere of the film ‘Chehre’ was delayed due to the pandemic and finally, it will be released in theaters on August 27.
When asked if the release delay worried her, Krystle D’Souza said: “At first, of course, it broke my heart a bit because I was super excited about my movie. Like I said, it’s a dream come true with everything perfect, be it the cast, the story, my role in the movie. But when the pandemic happened and we all realized how people are losing their lives, it was certainly not the right time for a movie to be released.
“So eventually, I just had gratitude that at least when normalcy surfaces, I have a movie to release, I have a reason to celebrate life and the fact that I and all my loved ones are healthy and happy. The release date of a movie was too little of a problem to sulk when people lost their lives to a deadly virus. “
Produced by Anand Pandit, ‘Chehre’ also Amitabh Bachchan, Emraan Hashmi, Krystle D’Souza, Rhea Chakraborty, Siddhanth Kapoor, Dhritiman Chatterjee, Raghuvir Yadav and Annu Kapoor.
