"Deeksha, who has already signed a two-movie deal with Saif Ali Khan's Illuminati Films, is also willing to take up television assignments. "
New Delhi, June 29 - Actress Deeksha Seth is soon going to make her Bollywood debut with Lekar Hum Deewana Dil and says that despite her co-star being Armaan Jain - the grandson of late actor-filmmaker Raj Kapoor - she feels secure.
Deeksha made her acting debut in the Telugu drama film Vedam in 2010 and went on to feature in quite a few Tamil and Telugu movies like Rajapattai and Wanted.
I don't feel overshadowed at all because it's not like I got to know he is a Kapoor now. If in the movie, I didn't have a good role then definitely I would've been insecure. When you see the movie you'll see there is a fair division between my and Armaan's work, Deeksha told IANS in a telephonic interview from Mumbai.
Armaan is also the cousin of actors Ranbir, Kareena and Karisma. Deeksha feels that it is obvious for people to be curious about a star kid.
I feel it's normal to have curiosity about someone who comes from a film family. Everyone wants to know what's happening, she added.
Lekar Hum Deewana Dil will release Friday.
Co-produced by Eros International and Illuminati Films, the film is directed by Arif Ali.
The former Miss India contestant is also excited about delivering dialogues in Hindi.
I look at it as my debut because I am working in my mother tongue. The language has made me more confident rather than my prior experience, said the actress.
Deeksha, who has already signed a two-movie deal with Saif Ali Khan's Illuminati Films, is also willing to take up television assignments.
TV is also okay. TV has some really interesting stuff nowadays
But I am not made for daily soaps. I can't do the same character for years, she said.
