South actress and the current face of gaana.com ads, Pia Bajpai is all set to make her Bollywood debut alongside Randeep Hooda. Before the release of her film, she says that she wants to work with everyone in Bollywood but it should be a good package of elements, rather than just a big star.
Pia, who hails from Etawah, is keen to do a content driven film. When she was asked if there is any particular actor or filmmaker she is keen to work with, Pia revealed, “I'm very much greedy. I want to work with everyone. Plus, I would look at the entire package - a good script, a good filmmaker and of course the content. I would go for a good team rather than a particular name.”
She is also excited about working with actor Randeep Hooda and calls him a chilled out person despite his experience. She said, "I couldn’t have asked for a better debut. I'm very much excited. He’s a chilled out person and I know it will be a wholesome learning experience for me.”
Set in the locales of Karnal, Haryana, Yeh Laal Rang has Randeep and Akshay Oberoi playing the protagonists. Directed by Syed Ahmad Afzal, the film deals with the blood mafia and rides completely on its content. “I had seen Afzal’s debut film Youngistaan and I'm sure that he is capable of making a good film. I auditioned for the role and fortunately it landed in my kitty,” she said. Talking about her role in the film, Pia added “I'm playing a girl from Saharanpur. My character is very innocent yet strong in its own way. You will see me in a non-glamorous avatar without any make-up.”
Yeh Laal Rang is currently in production. Randeep, who turned 39 on Thursday, celebrated his birthday along with his grandmother on the set.
