Sana Khan made her debut cameo appearance in Salman Khan’s ‘Jai Ho’ (2014), since then she has been waiting patiently for the right movie that would take her career off the ground. Khan has certainly managed to achieve this with her latest release ‘Wajah Tum Ho’, where her character plays a pivotal role in the film. Starring opposite Gurmeet Choudhary, the duo’s chemistry is on fire and for Khan bringing a certain level of oomph was no big deal.
In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Khan who is extremely pleased with the audience’s reception to the film, shared her happiness of getting a thumbs up for her performance. She said, “Of course yes, why not? We worked very hard and it is response from audiences that matters the most. I am happy that major chunk of people have liked it. There are many who have called me and they really liked the concept of revenge being taken via hacking a satellite and then planning of live murders on TV. Such subject has never been attempted before. Also, the fact is that the film is much beyond this so-called erotica factor. People just see what they what to see. Otherwise, there are so many twists and turns with edge of the seat thrills. Now that people have seen the film, word of mouth will take it through.”
Asked how she felt about playing a protagonist for the first time, Khan said she found her character “empowering”. Adding to this, she said, “As you can see, the girl is so powerful in the film. She has her head on the shoulder. She is strong, hears everyone out but then eventually does her own thing. No one can empower her. The way this character is tested in the film is an altogether different zone. This is also (director) Vishal’s (Pandya) first film as a writer. He has been waiting to make this film for so long. For me and Vishal, this is an emotional connection with the film as it is his pet project and I too am seeing my first Bollywood release as a leading lady. So both of us did this film from the bottom of heart and not due to any filminess per se.”
