Charmme Kaur: Love scenes are boring to do

The buxom beauty you saw in Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap is getting ready for her next – and hopefully more successful – outing in Bollywood, Zilla Ghaziabad

If you are one of the few who saw Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap, you will probably remember a young girl wearing tight-fitting T-shirts and trying to look like Raveena Tandon’s daughter. That’s Charmme Kaur, a Punjabi girl from Mumbai who found her calling in Telugu cinema. At the young age of 15, she played a housewife in the Telugu film Nee Thodu Kaavali. “I was too young to know what I was doing,” she recalls. “I was just doing what Mama and Papa told me to do. Now, of course, I’ve seen it all, done it all.”

Over the next two years, she managed to make a mark for herself in Tollywood, so much so that when Puri Jagannadh made Bbuddah, he took her instead of a better known B-towner. “I am a lot like the character Amruta I played in Bbuddah. Puri is a good friend and he knows how I am in real life. That’s why he offered me the role.”

After Bbuddah, there is Zilla Ghaziabad opposite Vivek Oberoi and a couple of other films she prefers not to talk about. Does that mean she is giving up Telugu movies? “I can’t say no to Tollywood, but yes, Bollywood is a priority. Tollywood is very close to my heart as I have done a lot of work in the south.”

That work includes several films that showcase her sexy side, as she seduces the leading men. That never made her uncomfortable. “It’s actually quite boring to do love scenes. They call for a cut every two seconds. It’s not a big deal. I will do them in Bollywood too, if they are shot sensuously. If there is a handsome hero, then why not?” She is friends with all her leading men so far. “You ask me to choose, but I can’t pick one. All of them are my friends.”

She may have made it big in the industry, but she is still as starry eyed as any of her fans looking in from the outside. She too is in awe of the current crop of stars in south cinema. “I want to work with Mahesh Babu, Pawan Kalyan, Ram Charan Teja, Naga Chaitanya…(and) all the stars from Tamil cinema,” she says. She also wants to work with the older generation, contemporaries of her Bbuddah co-star Amitabh Bachchan. “Why not? Age doesn’t matter. They are great actors.” Then she adds candidly, “When I was a kid, I wanted to be Miss World. But I became an actor instead. Acting is the only thing I know. I will do it till my last breath.”
