She refuses to comment on her relationship with Bollywood actor Aftab Shivdasani, but actress Aamna Sharif admits that she shared a high comfort level with him while working on their second film Aao Wish Karein.
"Since this is my second film with Aftab (after Aloo Chaat), the comfort level is definitely higher. He is a wonderful actor and this film he has produced and co-written too," Aamna said over the phone from Mumbai.
Releasing on November 13, Aao Wish Karein is being produced by Aftab.
"It was great to see how he managed both the roles of an actor and a producer. He took care of everyone in the crew and mine too. When he had to shoot, his whole concentration used to be on acting. But after the pack up, he used to completely become a producer looking after different things," she added.
Aamna, who became a household name after featuring in the popular daily soap Kahiin To Hoga, forayed into Bollywood with Aloo Chaat. She says that she accepted Aftab's home production because she liked the script.
"I was offered this film on the sets of Aloo Chaat. I gave my nod to it not because it had Aftab, but because I loved the script and my role," she said.
The film is a fairy tale revolving around a ballet teacher and a 12-year-old child, who falls in love with her.
Asked for the reason behind doing a fantasy caper at a time when Indian cinema's focus is on realistic films, the actress said that her priority is doing different kinds of roles.
"I want to do different things. I don't want to limit myself to a particular kind of cinema. As it is Aao Wish Karein is not a hardcore fairy tale. It has got its share of realism too.
"It has elements of a fairy tale, but the characters are very believable. People will relate to those characters," said Aamna, who wishes to work with her favourite actor Shah Rukh Khan some day.
She is willing to return to television if something nice comes up. "I would love to be attached to television. It's just that it requires a lot of time; so I want something that is good and suitable. TV was the one that gave me recognition and I would definitely take up if something interesting comes my way," Aamna said.
