Tannishtha Chatterjee did not know who Brett Lee was when she was told that he was going to be in the lead role with her in the movie Un-Indian.
Tannishtha reveals what came to her mind first up was that the guy must be a professional actor and it’s only later that she found out the truth that his hero in the movie had actually been a sportsman and had not had any kind of career in movies.
Tannishtha believes it proved an advantage that she didn’t know Lee and he was like any other normal hero for him on the sets. If she had been aware of which field he belonged to and was awestruck by his Cricket heroics, she might have felt uncomfortable romancing with him on the big screen.
As per Tannishtha, Lee’s experience of working in product advertisement videos came handy and his performance in the movie was really decent acting-wise. It seemed to her that acting came pretty naturally to him. However, she knows that because he is a debutant and she is someone who’s been doing the movies for over a decade, the critics would be going easier on him in comparison to her and it’s only her work which would be rated.
On asked how she personally got along with Lee, Tannishtha said that the two of them found a fantastic tuning straightaway as they had similar taste regarding songs and many other things. Also, the sense of humour of Lee makes him someone really nice to be accompanied by.
The movie hit the screen in Australia the previous year itself and had made decent collections. It is likely to be appreciated in India too once it comes in the cinema halls next week.
