Actor Erika Kaar says that she found it tough to balance her look with her intense character in the film.

Polish actor Erika Kaar, who will make her Bollywood debut with actor Ajay Devgn’s film Shivaay, says that she enjoyed Indian food the most on the sets.

The actor says that although she had a separate cook for her food, she enjoyed Indian food more. “The food was great. Although food would be cooked separately for me as I was not allowed this food, I would often sneak out and eat parathas with the crew. I enjoyed that the most,” she says.

Erika Kaar wants to see how people react to her in Shivaay before she takes on any more work in Bollywood.

Although she had fun on the set, shooting for a Bollywood film was also challenging, says the actor. “The most challenging thing was combining my physical appearance with my performance. My look in the film is very demanding and that combined with the character made it quite tough. But it was a good challenge and I learnt a lot in the process,” she says.

The actor is looking forward to the release of her film before taking on any other work in Bollywood. “Before I think about acting anymore in Bollywood, I want to see how people react to me. I feel that before anyone can even say that they are my fan, they need to see me in this film. This is the real test for me,” she says.

Talking about working with Ajay, Erika says that she learnt a lot from him on the set. “More than a star, I looked at him as my teacher. He taught me so much. He often showed me my scenes on the monitor to see where I could improve,” she says.
