It’s not uncommon for Bollywood stars to play characters way younger than they are, but this is still going to be an interesting transformation to see. Sayani Gupta, who’s been a part of Fan, Jolly LLB2 and Baar Baar Dekho, will next be seen in Anurag Basu‘s Jagga Jasoos where she plays Ranbir Kapoor‘s friend. And for this film, her character is a 14-year-old.

Sayani says:

It’s the best casting of my life. I love dada (Anurag Basu) to have had the imagination to see me as a little girl who is all of 14 years. I loved his audition process as well, it was so simple. He is quite a genius and this character will always be very close to my heart. People who have seen me in the look can’t believe that I am not a teen. Haha… I remember I had cut my hair and went for the audition and dada was quite surprised because actors don’t do these things before they have gotten the part. And once I went on set on the first day of shoot, and we were deciding the look for the character, I insisted that I should cut my hair in this little bob. Ajay, Ranbir’s hair stylist was all excited to chop my locks, but Dada wasn’t convinced at first but I had the look so vivid in my mind, that after a while with Ranbir’s help, I finally managed to convince dada. He was super happy with the look. And then I just got stuck in this short hair look for over two years now. And I love it.

I love Sayani’s hair, but had no idea she’d initially cut it for Jagga Jasoos. Can’t wit to see what she looks like in the film!
