Nikita Anand's character in her forthcoming film Ek Second – Jo Zindagi Badal De directed by Partho Ghosh will have the typical sarcastic and scary laughter, which was the trademark of Shahrukh Khan's character in Yash Chopra's Darr.
Who can forget SRK mouthing the K-K-K-K-Kiran dialogue which got engraved in the history of Bollywood, while sending shivers down everyone's spine.
Nikita made her mark with her debut last year in Prakash Jha's sleeper hit Dil Dosti Etc., sharing screen space with Shreyas Talpade and Imaad Shah. It can be noted here that just like Shahrukh, she too has a lot of grey shades in Ek Second where her co-stars include Manisha Koirala, Jackie Shroff and Pakistani star Moamar Rana.
"Nikita was actually given the brief to ape SRK's laughter of Darr for the role. She was also told that her laughter throughout the film has to be as kameena as possible. And surprisingly, contrary to the normally chirpy girl that she is, Nikita has carried this off pretty well," says her publicist.
Shahrukh sure had us at the edge of our seats when he essayed the menacing character right in the beginning of his career. Now let's see how much of a scare Nikita manages to evoke.
