Catfights between female actors in Bollywood have always generated a lot of buzz. However, on the contrary, actor Lisa Haydon says it is in fact great to work with them.
“It’s so much nicer when girls get along in a movie. Just because there is another female actor in the film does not mean that you have to give hard time to each other. I know, from experience, that it’s rather great,” says Haydon who is seen in Housefull 3 sharing screen space with female actors Jacqueline Fernandez and Nargis Fakhri.
“Nargis, Jacqueline and I share the same sentiment when it comes to female camaraderie on sets. Everyone has faced such questions in the past, and we know it for sure that we don’t believe in bringing any kind of negativity on the sets,” adds Haydon, who has worked in multi-starrers such as Aisha(2010)and Queen(2014).
Haydon and Fernandez play sisters in the recent film, and it was important for the actors to spend time with each other. “We played sisters and it was important to have an unspoken chemistry with each other. We watched a lot of movies together. We watched The Walk together. We went for dinner and had a great time,” she adds.
Fernandez, who agrees to Haydon’s point of view, says, “The best thing you can do in the film is to help your
co-stars, irrespective of them being male or female. The more you can push and support them, the better it is for you as an actor and for the film.”
