heroine in a commercial film. It has been possible only after
'Queen'. It is really exciting as an actor that that I
have scenes after scenes in a movie. I just loved that feeling that
I was given an acting opportunity such as this," Lisa told

remake, the concept of our film is completely different from the
original. The movie is a very clean comedy. It has a contemporary
setting.And also I got to work with three veteran and prolific
actors like Anupam ji, Annu ji and Piyush ji. I could not have
asked for more," said the actress, adding she has not watched the
