Shilpa Shetty Kundra: Harman Baweja is not just a sweet guy, but also a good actor!

Dhishkiyaoon promos look promising and the Dhadkan babe defends and supports her not so successful hero with all her might

Shilpa Shetty Kundra truly believes in Harman Baweja. While the actor herself didn’t see much success at the box-office and is better known for her stint at the Big Brother and her item songs, Ms Kundra believes in giving every actor a chance. In a recent interview the babe defended  Harman Baweja and even narrated her own turmoil in Bollywood. She said,“He’s not just a sweet guy, but also a good actor. How can you judge him after just doing two-and-a-half films? We got better after doing 20. I was lucky that I debuted in a superhit film like Baazigar. I am a Mangalorean who did not even know Hindi when I started. I was just 17 and wanted to be a model, that too was a keeda put into my head by a neighbour, who was a foreign photographer in Chembur where we lived. He shot me for free as he thought I was really tall. He arranged the makeup artist and the hairdresser for the shoot. The make up artist Jagdish Purohit is no more now, but he distributed my pictures as he thought I had the potential of becoming a model. I remember meeting Abbas bhai and Mustan bhai for Baazigar and they said, ‘This is a remake of a film called A Kiss Before Dying and the first thing I said to them was, ‘I won’t kiss.’ They said, ‘No, no you don’t have to kiss, but this is the role.’ I was initially very nervous in front of the camera, but learnt acting on the job.”
