Raashi Khanna who will be making her debut opposite John Abraham in Madras Cafe has reportedly been signed for another movie under John’s production house. Ayushmaan Khurrana will be the male lead in the film.
The young actress said she was shy when she first met John on the sets.
“John is a gentleman. He broke the ice through casual conversation and was very easygoing and helpful during the shoots,” she said.
Raashi is a Delhi University graduate and has worked for TV commercials before. She had audtioned for the role and was offered the role within a week’s time and she looks all set to take Bollywood by storm.
“I want to be part of every thing that comes to me. Be it commercial or offbeat, I want to establish myself as an actress.”
The 22-year-old actress found it challenging to portray a character older than her.
“It was a challenge for me to portray a much mature character on-screen. I was little apprehensive of my capabilities but Shoojit sir (director Shoojit Sircar) helped me perfect my portrayal. I attended three workshops with him and he made me understand it better. I can now pull off mature characters,” Raashi told PTI.
Raashi Khanna and Ayushman Khurrana seem to have quite an impression on John while they look like a very interesting pair, both young and appeal to the next gen audience!
