Amyra Dastur: Enjoyed pressure of working with Rajkummar Rao

Amyra Dastur plays a business-savvy Gujrati girl, an assistant to Boman Irani’s character in Made In China

Set to reunite with Rajkummar Rao for the second time after Judgementall Hai Kya, Made In China actor Amyra Dastur says it’s easy to get overshadowed by the much-acclaimed actor if an artiste doesn’t “bring on their A-Game”. “Seeing a fine actor like Raj play two distinct roles across films was fun. I enjoy the pressure of being surrounded by actors like Boman Irani and Raj, because it makes me perform to the best of my ability.”

Dastur plays a business-savvy Gujrati girl, an assistant to Irani’s character, who Rao — a desperate businessman — approaches to make a sale of his magic soup. Given that like Irani, Dastur is also a Parsi, she admits her family members were thrilled to hear of their collaboration. “My family has always admired him. My community honours him. They weremore excited about this film than they have been of my past offerings. His comic timing is truly worth watching.”

Amyra Dastur wraps up song shoot in 24 hours!

While some movies and songs leave a lasting impact on the minds of the audience, there are often moments and memories that remain special for the artistes.For Amyra Dastur, one such special memory was when she recently shot a song for her film Made in China in Ahmedabad. The Gujarati folk song, that features her and co-stars Rajkummar Rao and Boman Irani, was shot inside a haveli on the outskirts of Ahmedabad in only 24 hours! National award winning director Nikhil Musale, who is also helming this upcoming comedy, wanted to shoot at a real location. Since the haveli was only available for one day, the team had to work extra hard to finish the song within the time frame.Amyra, who had a blast shooting the track, is happy that they managed to wrap it up in 24 hours. Also, she got to rap! “I have never lip synced to a rap, so this was new to me. But my director and co-stars were really helpful and we managed to get everything done on time,” she says. The actress will be seen in a never-before-seen desi avatar and is looking forward to the audience’s response to her character. “I play a modern working woman and will be seen dressed in Gujarati saris. Made in China has really been such a experience for me,” says the lissome lass with a smile.
