Although I became the butt of that joke… Grr!
Australian cricketer Brett Lee is currently in India for the promotions and release of his debut film titled UnIndian. He stars opposite Tanishtha Chatterjee in the film. The film has circled in many film festivals and has been well received. Bollywoodlife met up the two stars for an interview and well it was pretty hilarious for me!
During the interview, we talked about many topics including how the actors were cast, the censorship UnIndian had to go through and many more. We ended the session with a quick rapid fire, in which Brett was at his wittiest best. Well, on camera. I asked him about what was that one thing about India that scandalised him. And his answer was just as witty as it gets. He replied “Nervous journalists”, clearly hinting at me. Well, I indeed was behaving like a crazy fan and was super nervous throughout the interview. His quick dig at my expense made everyone around us laugh who were witnessing me being a wreck. He clearly won this round of rapid fire, hands down. But I wasn’t in the mood to let it go so easily. I had to own Round 2 and I did.
Here’s the rapid fire with Lee as a proof.
UnIndian tells the story of Will, played by Brett Lee, an Australian man who falls for Meera, played by Tanishtha, an Indian woman. The film has been directed by Anupam Sharma and looks pretty cute from the trailer.
During the interview when I quizzed Tanishtha, if she had a fan girl moment on meeting Brett Lee, the actress said that she couldn’t believe when Anupam told her about Brett. She wondered if Brett Lee was an Australian actor she is unaware of. “I wasn’t nervous. Brett is a gentleman. He made me feel very comfortable.”
