Daisy Shah recently grabbed the limelight for her performance in Race 3 and especially her line of dialogue which went viral. Now, the actress is all set to make her debut in the Gujarati film industry. Daisy has been roped in to play a football coach in the film, titled Gujarat 11. The actress will be paired opposite Prateek Gandhi. Prateek’s film Wrong Side Raju also won National Film Award for Best Feature Film in 2017.
Daisy had this to say about her Gujarati debut, “A close friend told me that though I have been working in Bollywood, I should do a film in my mother tongue whenever I get the chance. I feel lucky to have found a good project to work in and that’s the reason I am doing a Gujarati film. When director Jayant Gilatar narrated the script to me, it immediately grabbed my attention. This film is different from what I have done till date. Besides pushing me on the physical front, I will also have to work on my language, as I speak Mumbaiya Gujarati.”
When asked if she would take up more regional films, Daisy said, “As far as I am getting interesting projects to work in, it doesn’t matter whether it’s Bollywood, South or Gujarati. The script is the hero for me.”
The actress entered showbiz with the Tamil film Vande Mataram and later made her Kannada debut in Bodyguard. Her Bollywood debut was opposite Salman Khan in Jai Ho in 2014.
