"We do not die," Prateik, who stars opposite debutante Amyra Dastur told reporters here yesterday. Dastur, who has been part of many TV commercials, said she had always dreamt of being a heroine. 

"I played in theaters of school and colleges, also in a TV commercial... Director Manish Tiwary made the characters more interesting," she said. The actress plays the role of Bachchi in the movie. For promotions of the film, the makers will be distributing 'Issaq Jodi Paan' in selected theatres in Mumbai.
