The popular actress has returned to the movie scene with a bang, proving her versatility in any character with her most recent releases. Bollywood Hungma’s Joginder Tuteja reports…Comment on this story
For 1920 girl Adah Sharma, her Fridays (movie release days) have never been as eventful as recently.
Off the big screen for a while, she now has a double bill of new releases in the form of Heart Attack and Hasee Toh Phasee.
The former was released a short while ago and the latter came out earlier this month, making it a happening season for Sharma, who will be seen in totally different roles in the films.
Her Telugu film Heart Attack is a biggie indeed as it is directed by Puri Jagannadh.
He has made quite a few successful films, including Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap.
Though the film didn’t cover much distance at the box office, he struck big with Business Man, starring Mahesh Babu.
For Heart Attack, he has taken a romantic route and presented Sharma in a different way.
The girl indeed needed it, considering the fact she played a woman possessed in 1920 and then had a serious part in Phhir as well, both Vikram Bhatt offerings.
“Somehow she couldn’t break into the glamorous avatar despite her pretty looks.
“However, Puri was sure he wanted to make her Telugu debut special. She is the solo leading lady opposite Nithin Reddy (seen in Ram Gopal Varma’s Agyaat) and plays a sweet and simple girl.
“Though she isn’t required to indulge in an overt skin show for the film, Jagannadh made sure she was presented in a stylish avatar.
“Her costumes were specially designed and those who have seen her work in Hindi films are in for a surprise as she went through a complete transformation,” said a source worked closely on Heart Attack.
Meanwhile, for those following her work in Bollywood, Sharma’s presence in Hasee Toh Phasee was revealed in full, courtesy of the song Shake It Like Shammi.
“Adah has always been mighty charged about the film, and especially the song. After all, she is being seen in a sari for the first time around, something that suits her thin-n-tall frame,” the source added.
“In Hasee Toh Phasee she carries different looks.
“What one sees in the song, where she is gyrating along with Sidharth Malhotra, is just a glimpse of what she does in the film.”
For obvious reasons though she has not been making much of a noise about Hasee Toh Phasee, since her part in the film was largely kept under wraps until its release.
While Sharma hasn’t said much about what she had to offer in the Karan Johar production where she is presented in a glam avatar, she doesn’t mind sharing her thoughts about Heart Attack, where she is the main lead.
She says, “Well, it is a Puri Jagannadh film after all so it is bound to be special.
“Moreover my part is not just restricted to being a quintessential leading lady. There is a lot more that I offer, which is going to shock the audience.”
As for the varied looks she would be seen in, Sharma smiles, “Aren’t those the perks that come with being an actress?”
