After doing many music albums and videos as a singer and an actor, Saru Maini was looking for the right break in Bollywood. But destiny had something better in store for her . A trip to California and a meeting with the Director Namrata Singh Gujral landed Saru, the role of Bhavna in the Indian American film, 5 Weddings.
“It's like a dream come true as the role was tailor made for me. I got to sing two songs in the film and also got to perform on them," says Saru, who adds,"Shooting was great fun and it felt like a stage show. I did not even have to act as I was playing my natural self."
Working With the likes of Nargis Fakhri and Rajkumar Rao was an added incentive says Saru, which helped her best performance. "It was also a great experience to work with the DOP Christobakalov.” she says.
