From Rajma Chawal to Prasthaanam – Amyra Dastur is emerging as Bollywood’s new mistress of disguise – Amyra Dastur, who made her Bollywood debut with ‘Issaq’, has always been someone who loves to experiment with her looks. The actress who sported a sexy side shave for the upcoming Rishi Kapoor starrer, ‘Rajma Chawal’, will now be seen in a new avatar for the much awaited ‘Hindi remake of Deva Katta’s Telugu blockbuster, ‘Prasthaanam‘.
Amyra, who is playing an NRI in the film, sat with Deva Katta, who is directing the Hindi remake and Maanyata Dutt, the producer of the film, to discuss her character’s look for the film. Deva wanted to make her character likeable and yet add a modern edge to the character. It was Maanyata who came up with the idea of giving her deep purple streaks to intensify the quirkiness and fun element of Amyra’s character.
“I love experimenting with my look. I truly believe that it’s our job as actors to bring a character to life and if that means changing your look, then so be it.” Her co stars in the film, Sanjay Dutt, Jackie Shroff, Ali Fazal and Manisha Koirala also loved the look and said it was ‘different and cool’.
Rajma Chawal is all set to hit the screens on 31st August 2018, while Prasthaanam is still being filmed in Lucknow and is most likely to release in the first quarter of 2019. Dastur also recently signed Alt Balaji’s webseries ‘Mental Hai Kya’ (where she will be seen sharing the screen with Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao) and ‘The Trip 2’ (where she has replaced Lisa Haydon).
