Sidharth a gentleman, Katrina tomboy: Sayani Gupta

Mumbai: Actress Sayani Gupta says her “Baar Baar Dekho” co-stars Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif are cute and they had a great time while working on the film.

The “Margarita, with a Straw” actress said while the 33-year-old actor is chivalrous, Katrina, 33, is a tomboy at heart.

“Sidharth and Katrina are too cute. Sid is very sweet. He is a very good boy, he is really a gentleman and very chivalrous by the book.

“With Kat, this is the second film I am working on. She is really like a tomboy and we get along well. Sid, Kat and I used to go around and eat in restaurants of Scotland. They are super fun and really gorgeous people,” Sayani told PTI.

Directed by Nitya Mehra, the movie has Excel Entertainment and Dharma Productions serving as co-producers.

The actress said the team became like a family and every one was sad during the shooting of the last song “Nachde Ne”.

“Experience of working on ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ was beautiful. We became like family while shooting for the film. We were shooting in Alibagh for the last song ‘Nachde Ve’ and everyone was sad.”

Sayani has mostly worked in films led by women directors like Leena Yadav, Shonali Bose and now Nitya. The actress feels the kind of roles she wants to play can be written by only a female director.

“My choice of films is governed by the characters I play. And I feel only all these female directors can write the characters I would like to play. These are strong parts of a woman who thinks for herself, they have good character graph. I guess this is the reason why I ended up working with female directors.”

The actress, who turned showstopper for Aaylixir at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2016, said she does not like spending a lot of money on buying high end brands or designer labels.

“I have a sense of aesthetic which I am born with. I like wearing good clothes and then I also have a great team working for me. I love shopping. I am finicky about the cuts and the way my clothes look. But I am not label continuous. I don’t like spending money on big brands. I am happy going to Sarojini market and shop.
