They last worked together in Yahaan. And interestingly, the 2005 film also marked the debuts of both actor Minissha Lamba and director Shoojit Sircar. Seven years later, if things go well, Minissha will team up again with her first director after he wraps up his next political-thriller, Jaffna.
“We have been talking about working together again after Jaffna. I hope everything works out as per plan,” says Minissha about the Vicky Donor director. “It’s great to see Shoojit getting the appreciation he deserves. Yahaan and Vicky Donor are completely different films. I only hope that he doesn’t take seven years to make another film,” she adds.
For the time being, Minissha is caught up with Joker which stars Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha. Shirish Kunder’s film was supposed to be released in a 3D format but the filmmakers have now changed their mind. “I was excited about doing my first 3D film, but honestly, I feel 2D films look more colourful,” she says.
So what does she feel about the Joker release date being constantly changed? “Even I don’t know why it keeps changing,” laughs the actor, who plays a TV journalist in the film. “But it’s being done for the right reasons, so that everyone’s films do well without a clash.”
After Joker, Minissha will be seen in the Sanjay Dutt-Vivek Oberoi starrer, Zilla Ghaziabad. “I usually end up playing soft characters. This time too, I’m playing a village girl, but she’s sensuous and sexy, not a sweet belle.”
