Filmmaker Omung Kumar has praised the acting skills of former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and said that she is a director's actor.
"She is a good actress...but she is a director's actor. So, she can mould herself completely for the character. When we decided to cast her as Dalbir Kaur for Sarbjit, she proved that and on screen, we saw her as a character and not as a glamorous diva," Omung said.
After clinching the Miss World crown in 1994, Aishwarya starred in many hit films like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Taal and Dhoom: 2.
Kumar said that "after the release of Sarbjit (2016), people have changed their perception about her as an actress".
What makes her so special?
Kumar said: "Even after becoming such a huge star, she is extremely hard working and a hardcore professional. She does not just work in a film, she collaborates with the director of the film. She is very cooperative by nature, and that is why I share a very good bond with Aishwarya."
"During our shooting of Sarbjit, she didn't even use mobile phone on set. That's her dedication level. I wish to see her growing as an artiste," he added. With inputs from IANS.
