The lovely Sayani Gupta impressed the audiences in Shahrukh Khan's Raees and Akshay Kumar's Jolly LLB 2 and this time the actress is all set for a twist in the role as she'll be playing the role of a 14-year-old-girl in Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer Jagga Jasoos. Surprising, isn't it?
She opened up about her role and said, "It's the best casting of my life. I love dada (Anurag Basu) to have had the imagination to see me as a little girl who is all of 14 years. I loved his audition process as well, it was so simple. He is quite a genius and this character will always be very close to my heart. People who have seen me in the look can't believe that I am not a teen."
Sayani further commented, "I remember I had cut my hair and went for the audition and dada was quite surprised because actors don't do these things before they have gotten the part. And once I went on set on the first day of shoot, and we were deciding the look for the character, I insisted that I should cut my hair in this little bob. Ajay, Ranbir's hair stylist was all excited to chop my locks, but Dada wasn't convinced at first but I had the look so vivid in my mind, that after a while with Ranbir's help, I finally managed to convince dada. He was super happy with the look. And then I just got stuck in this short hair look for over two years now. And I love it."
