After a brief lull in her career for the past two years, Amrita Rao made her way back to the big screen in the Arshad Warsi starrer Jolly LLB. Next on the anvil is her film Satyagraha helmed by Prakash Jha, for which the shooting is on full swing.
Amrita, who plays the character of a woman with a lot of aggression, says this is her most challenging role ever, more so because she shares the screen with Amitabh Bachchan.
The actress says, “Jha has given me my most challenging role. There are different shades to my character and of course I have to deliver all of that in front of Mr Bachchan. My role in the film runs very closely to him.”
While Amrita has also starred in the 2004 release Deewar along with Bachchan, she did not share any scene with the veteran.
The actress is not very forthcoming to talk about her character in Jha’s film but adds, “It’s a role where my character does not say much but is very strong. There is a lot of aggression in her and there is a tremendous scope for performance. It was emotionally challenging for me as I was surrounded by Mr Bachchan and all the other actors who are far more senior than I am.”
