Actress Nazia Hussain, who is all set with her second outing "Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai", says uncle Sanjay Dutt has no problems with her joining the industry but hasn't watched her films because he is a busy man. "People feel that Sanjay uncle is a strict person but he is completely the opposite. He is a very busy man. He has no issues with me joining Bollywood and is happy about my decision," Nazia told PTI.
Earlier, it was reported that Sanjay did not allow his daughter Trishala to join the film industry. Nazia, 21, late actress Nargis's grand niece, began her career with "Say Yes to Love" which released this year, but her performance in the romantic drama went unnoticed.
With her second film "Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai" coming up, Nazia hopes to strike a chord with the audience. "I have worked hard for this film, I am playing a woman from Rajasthan. I have watched many films including 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam' to prepare for my character. I have also attended four months rigorous workshop also," she said.
Asked if there is any particular reason behind starring again in a romantic film, she said, "Indian audience still love to go to the theatre if the film is mushy. Love stories touch people's heart. But I don't want to associate myself with romantic films only. If I get a good script then I will do a realistic film also."
"Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai", which will hit theatres on July 20, also stars new comer Aditya Samantha. "Aditya is quite opposite to me in real life. He is an introvert and always comes prepared on the sets. He is a brilliant performer," Nazia added.
Before joining films, Nazia worked as a travel agent. She has grown up watching Sanjay's films. "It was one fine day when I decided that I want to be an actress and after my acting school, I started giving various auditions. I had forgotten about my first audition for this film when I got a call for the second screen test after 5-6 months. And here I am doing it," she said. PTI
