I feel like a mother to 'Desi Magic': Ameesha Patel
Ameesha Patel's first production venture "Desi Magic" has gone on floors and the actress looks at her maiden project in the same way as a mother would look at her 'new born baby'
"I feel like a mother who is creating this new born baby in 'Desi Magic'," the actress said on the sidelines of a photo shoot for a magazine.
"I am seeing it taking its (baby) steps, learning to crawl, learning to walk, having its falls while learning to walk and coming through each hurdle. And now with 'Desi Magic' going on floors, I feel I have sent my kid to school. I just want it to graduate with flying colours."
The actress is playing a double role for the first time in the film and admits it is very challenging.
"I have never played a double role in my life. This needs a lot of homework because characters are poles apart. They are like cheese and chalk," said Ameesha who made a successful debut alongside Hrithik Roshan in "Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai" in 2000.
"There are days when I am going to be changing my costume, look, make-up, hair and attitude seven-eight times a day when both Ameeshas actually come together and I have to be completely familiar with both the character of Mahie Deol from Punjab and Sonia Saxena, a spoilt child," she added.
Directed by debutant Mehul Atha, the film also features Zayed Khan, Ravi Kishan and Randhir Kapoor in pivotal roles.
