A fun-filled grand entry in Grand Masti: Kainaat

Keeping a low profile after an item song in Akshay Kumar starrer Khatta Meetha, Kainaat Arora is back with her new film Grand Masti which will mark her debut as an actress in Bollywood. The actress gets talking to City Express about the film.

“My role is that of a nerdy girl, kind of like Ugly Betty who later turns into this hot babe who has an extramarital affair,” says Kainaat who stars opposite Vivek Oberoi in the film. Working with him was a great experience according to her. “Vivek has become a great friend now and more than that, he’s a wonderful human being who is very supportive. Not even once did I feel that this is my first film,” says Kainaat.

The fact that Grand Masti is an adult comedy doesn’t faze her even though this is her first film. “Initially I had the jitters of a newcomer but then director Indra Kumar who has made films like Ishq, Dil was making it. So I knew that he wouldn’t make something bad and after seeing the end result, I’m sure the audience will go home laughing,” adds Arora who was waiting for the right script to come along for her debut.

“Post Khatta Meetha, I did get a lot of offers for item numbers but I didn’t want to be typecast. I was very clear from the beginning what kind of films I want to do, the actors I want to work with,” says Arora. Grand Masti happened to come her way as the writer of the film Milaap Trivedi who had earlier offered her a role in a movie he was directing told her they were looking for an actress to star opposite Vivek. “He told me that they were ‘looking for someone for the film and you fit the bill so why don’t you go meet Indu Kumar.’ So I went and gave the audition and the next day, I got the call saying I have the role,” gushes Kainaat who was chosen from among 200 girls who came to audition for the role.

The actress is all praise for the director Indra Kumar. “He is a very nice person and he commands respect in this industry,”adds Kainaat who has high hopes for the movie. “Masti was a hit in 2004 so I am glad to be working for the sequel. It is a great thing to begin my career with,” explains Kainaat. The actress who comes from a business background says she is in no hurry to sign any films. “For me the script has to be great with a big director and a big star. I am not going to do anything and everything just for the heck of it, just to be visible in the industry,”adds Kainaat.

Stepping into Bollywood was never for money, but about doing quality work, says the debutante. “My father is an industrialist so I am not in a big hurry to make money and get rich overnight. I believe in doing quality roles with quality people,” adds the actress. 

Kainaat has ventured into the southern film industry too with item numbers in Ajith starrer Mankatha and a Malyalam film by Sangeeth Sivan, but she has no regrets. “The item number I did in Mankatha was because it was opposite Ajith who is like the Salman Khan of Tamil film industry. It was a great opportunity and a good platform to enter the south industry,” explains Arora.
