Sayani Gupta who starred in Akshay Kumar's Jolly LLB 2 was offered the role of a Cricket Analyst in a web series and the actress revealed that she literally freaked out when the makers approached her as there are very less female analysts for the game of cricket. She said, "Honestly I was freaking out when the director, Karan Anshuman, asked me to play this technically sound character, who knows so much about cricket."
She further commented, "I play the character of Rohini, who is the team analyst, she is the brain behind the team. It's very rare in our country, but abroad, the trend of having a female cricket analyst is normal. So, I actually had to figure out the technicalities behind the game."
Preparing herself for the role of a Cricket Analyst was not easy and Sayani Gupta had to contact her family, friends and other known people to gain more info about the whole process of cricket and what goes on behind the scenes. She said, "It's tough. Cricket is a very complex game and only if you have followed it for a long time, you would understand it completely. Although it was very challenging, it was also fun to play this character in the web series. She is such a geek and so effortlessly brilliant."
Apart from the web series, Sayani Gupta would also be seen in Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer Jagga Jasoos and the surprising part is that she'll be playing the role of a 14-year-old-girl in the film. She 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."
