Sayani Gupta, who packed a punch with her brief turn in Jolly LLB 2 as a pregnant woman, can easily pass off as someone in her early 20s. But for her next outing, the 31-year-old has shaved off a good decade and a half. The actress plays a 14-year-old in Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif-starrer Jagga Jasoos.
Says Sayani, “It’s the best casting of my life. I love Dada (director Anurag Basu) for having the imagination to see me as a little girl. I enjoyed his audition process; it was so simple. He is quite a genius and this character will always be close to my heart. People who have seen me in the look can’t believe that I am not a teen anymore.”
Not much is known about her part in Jagga Jasoos currently, but we hear, it is a pivotal role.
