Actor and influencer Shehnaz Treasury has spoken about her Ishq Vishk co-stars, Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao. Shehnaz has said that while she was good friends with Shahid at the time and really got along with him, she didn’t really hit it off with Amrita Rao. The 2003 film, Ishq Vishk, was a popular movie and marked the debut of Shahid Kapoor. His leading lady in the film was Amrita Rao and Shehnaz played a supporting character.
“We were good friends at that time. Although now we’re not really in touch. He used to tell me that I got to be something more than a VJ. I guess I wasn’t that serious about it. I had this regular job at MTV which I really enjoyed and I didn’t want to leave that for Bollywood. I had a good equation with Shahid. I had been on camera, he hadn’t. He was completely fresh. I guess when we went to Cape Town, that was the first time he was on a plane. It was fun. We really got along. Amrita and I didn’t really hit it off. That’s the truth,” Shehnaz told a leading daily.
When asked if she would make any changes to her character in the film, she said: “I would definitely not wear those contact lenses. In the movie, there is a line, Neeli neeli aankhon waali kaun hai woh, so the director insisted that I wear contact lenses, and then the makeup artist used to poke them into my eyes. When I went to do the scene I would see two Shahids, two Amritas. I couldn’t even see clearly because my eyes just can’t take them… I think the contact lenses made me blink a lot so I didn’t like that when I watched the movie but it worked for the character because she was that kind of fun character.”
