Celina Jaitley is one poised actress who doesn't let anything flummox her. But recently a compliment from super actor Anupam Kher completely stunned her - so much, that for a few seconds she was stumped for words.
You have that after-compliment glow.
It was in the lobby of the hotel where we were staying in South Africa. And I bumped into Anupam Kher, he complimented me for my performance in Shaka Laka Boom Boom where I play a hotshot media baroness.
What were Kher's exact words?
He told me 'you have done a fabulous job and performed for the first time on screen!'
And your reaction was?
I didn't know what to say, as he is a national award winner. It took a few minutes to sink in. But for me it's the biggest compliment I have received till now considering he has done a fabulous job himself.
Who was more fun to work with Bobby Deol or Upen Patel?
Hey, please don't get me into this kind of balancing act. I enjoyed working with both.
Subhash Ghai's reaction after watching you in Apna Sapna...
Two months ago, he messaged me saying - 'Your song looks great. You have done a good job and full justice to Sania Badnam', the character I play in the film.
There were a lot of pranks being played during the shooting for Apna Sapna....
I was so involved in the film that I did not think of any pranks or didn't even notice what the other actors were up to. I was busy with my voice modulation and trying to show Sangeeth (Sivan) sir how I would do my next scene or line. But Koena as well as the whole unit including the other stars were fantastic.
Your future projects?
Vikram Bhatt's Red. Watch out for me in that.
Have you got over your break up with Sean Teague?
I am fine now but I'd rather not get into further details, but thanks for asking. I am a die-hard romantic. To me, love means true bonding and companionship. And yes, I know that one day I will truly settle down with my true love.
What's on your most wanted list?
Great roles supported by awesome directors and love from fans!
