Actor Amyra Dastur, who was seen recently in Issaq with actor Pratiek Babbar, seems to have kept all her options open, including regional cinema. The actor has signed a Tamil film, Anegan, opposite actor Dhanush.
The film will see Amyra in a completely new look much in contrast to what she is in real life.
A source close to her says, “It’s a big budget film directed by KV Anand, and Amyra is playing a pivotal role opposite Dhanush. She has worked really hard on her language, as the makers wanted her to dub her own lines.
Talking about her co-star Dhanush, Amyra says that he’s been of great help. “He is such a lovely person to work with. He made me really feel at home on set and also helped me a lot with the language. In a span of a few days, I can grasp some Tamil and a lot of that credit goes to Dhanush, and to the whole lot of Tamil movies I saw. I saw movies that starred Rajnikanth Sir, Vikram and Madhuballah along with many of Mani Ratnam’s earlier films,” she says.
“It’s a love story with a suspense thriller angle with it. We will be shooting first in Chennai, then in South east Asia,” she adds.
