Debutante actor Puja Gupta shrugs off the oohs and aahs of wearing a bikini in F.A.L.T.U
Puja Gupta is no coy woman. The ex-Miss India entered Bollywood with Vashu Bhagnani’s F.A.L.T.U and made quite an impression on the audience, especially with her appearance in a bikini. The rumour doing the rounds is that it was that shot which was shown in the trailer that drew in whatever audiences came to watch the film. Quiz Puja on why she agreed to don the suit when many other established actresses were shying away from it and she just shrugs. “During Miss India and Miss Universe contests, I walked the ramp in a swimsuit in front of six thousand people. I have no problems wearing a bikini on screen, so long as it is tastefully done. And I feel Remo (D’souza, director) sir shot it very aesthetically.” Ask her what she has to say about actresses turning down such offers and she gives one of those ‘world peace’ answers that make you realise why she won Miss India. “It’s not for me to say. Each to her own.” And she managed to not let her guard down even though she was sleep-deprived from a hectic promotional schedule and was rushing to another event. Well, what can we say, Puja? We are impressed.
