Shweta Gulati's filmi debut

Shweta Gulati's filmi debut

By: Soumya Menon December 14, 2005

Remix girl Shweta Gulati, aka Tia Ahuja, makes her entry into Bollywood in a Romilla Mukherjee film, Detective Naani. Shweta is starring opposite Amit Verma, of Hotel Kingston fame;both were seen together in Shagun, on Star Plus. "It is a masala movie, with a little bit of comedy, suspense, thriller and a love story. It is about a naani, played by Ava Mukherjee (who features in the Himalaya Ayurvedic products ad). Amit and I play teenage characters in the film. Naani is the central character and I am her best friend," said Shweta. The actress plays the role of a young girl who lives in her own world. She is into books and doesn't have friends. "I play a very different character, unlike myself. Yet, it's a nice role and I enjoyed it. My name is Neeti in the film," said Shweta. The film has some cute moments - like the naani trying to learn karate and dancing. Amit plays Rohan, a rich, spoilt guy with attitude, who Neeti hates. And the usual twist is that they are chat friends, who have never met. The small love story between the two begins in naani's house. The suspense in the film is when Nani discovers a dead body in the building and investigates the case. Her two grandchildren, along with Neeti, help her solve the problem. "It's a fun film, and I am waiting for it to release," said Shweta. The film has its share of song and dance sequences. "The promos of the film are out and Avinash Gowarikar is doing the publicity for the film," she said. Detective Naani is expected to release in February next year. "Work on the film started two years back, but was delayed. Financial problems were part of the reason," she said. Shweta had no plans to get into the big screen; so, how did the film happen? "This film just happened. When I was shooting for Shagun, Romilla and Jolly Mukherjee called, saying they want me to do a commercial. I met them and auditioned for the ad, and then they told me they had signed me for their film! They told me it was a tailor-made role; and I am the Neeti they were looking for." "I actually replaced Mamata Jhaveri (seen in Babul Supriyo's music video, Sochta hoon). I have no clue why she was dropped," said Shweta. Amit, who had already been selected for the role, said, "It was very stressful in the beginning, with a lot of breaks happening between shoots and as the film getting delayed. My expectations from the film weren't that great. But now I am very happy and optimistic." Shweta has no plans of acting in films, though she is being offered a few. "I am actually happy with Remix, and since I am bound by contract, I won't be doing anything else. I have never given Bollywood a serious thought - unless something big comes my way. Till then, it's television for me," chuckled Shweta.
