Sumeet Vyas became a household name as Mikesh Chaudhary in TVF's popular web-seies 'Permanent Roommates' and tasted success again with TVF's Tripling. The actor has been a part of many films including English Vinglish, Parched, Guddi Ki Gun and Ribbon. But 2018 is special for him. Sumeet has back-to-back releases- Akarsh Khurana's Hijack followed by Shashanka Ghosh's Veere Di Wedding.
When we recently caught up with Sumeet for a quick chat for Hijack, we couldn't resist ourselves from asking him about sharing screen space with Kareena Kapoor Khan in Veere Di Wedding. Here's what the actor had to share in an exclusive interview with Filmibeat-
I Always Perceived Kareena Kapoor Khan As A Great Actor
Sumeet exclusively told Filmibeat, "It was great working with Kareena Kapoor Khan. I always perceived her to be one of the few stars who is a good actress. That's precisely what it was. She is a very good actor."
Here's How Kareena Left Him Surprised
He further added, "I didn't know that these big stars also prepare so much. She is very well-prepared on the sets. She always remembered her lines and was there to give her cues."
No Starry Tantrums From Kareena
Sumeet told us, "She was really humble and professional on sets which is not something which I had expected. I thought a star like her would throw whims and fancies. But she was nothing like that."
Sumeet On Having No Apprehensions About Doing A Women-Oriented Film
"I don't look at films like that. I don't look at a film and say, 'Oh, it's a women-oriented film. I just look at stories. If I like the story and the people involved in that project, I want to be part of the film. That's my approach."
"It so happened that some of them were women-oriented or directed by woman directors. I don't think like that and I don't want to change that. I think that's the need of the hour rather than thinking of a film as women-oriented," he further added.
While Hijack which is touted to be Bollywood's first stoner comedy releases tomorrow i.e 18th May, Veere Di Wedding is slated to release on 1st June. The film has an ensemble cast which includes Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar, Shikha Talsania and Sumeet Vyas.
