In trying to do something different, DEVANSH PATEL went out on a lunch date with not one but two actresses - Adah Sharma and Roshni Chopra - for a casual chat on likes, dislikes,food, movies, award functions and what they both are good at: posing for the camera.
THERE are many who consider actresses to be canny, manipulative and, eventually, undeniable. I too think so, as they come across as bold, mature and very confident.
I'm saying this because I met not one but two actresses at the same time at the same place under one roof, at Indigo Cafe in Andheri last Saturday.
Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for the newest face being launched by producer Vikram Bhatt in his next film 'Phhir' - Roshni Chopra. Her passage to Bollywood is as similar to that of Prachi Desai. She looks a bit of Sonam Kapoor and is as chirpy as her.
She is making her debut in Bollywood by moving from the small screen to the big screen and, being as she began her education and career in media back in the University of Leeds, it's actually taken me by surprise.
She studied mass communications and media studies - but wait until you see her act.
I was interested to know how Roshni signed up for 'Phhir' in which she plays the better half of Rajneesh Duggal.
The charming actress informed me that it took just one text message from Vikram Bhatt to do the trick. He met her, told her the plot and the role fell in her lap.
Now, not many know that both Adah and Roshni are co-stars in Phhir and both had a freezing time in Newcastle while filming.
While Adah kept eating hot jacket potatoes to keep herself warm, Roshni loved her chow mein. Chinese is Roshni's favourite dish and believe it or not, she can keep on eating chinese seven days a week.
Roshni had an interesting story to share about what happened in Newcastle: one morning, Adah was missing from the hotel's breakfast table and so when all the other cast and crew, who had got up hours before the 9am shoot, were munching on their healthy food, Adah's mother was seen picking the best of the fruits for her daughter who was still getting ready in her room.
Why? So she could change into her outfit, eat her breakfast and still be on time to join the rest of the gang. Didn't I say she was quick?
Then both take out their list of complaints. In Newcastle, Adah couldn't bear the heaters while Roshni couldn't bear the cold.
Adah loves doing yoga in the mornings. Roshni doesn't agree. One loves the snakes and the other hates it. Roshni suddenly blurts out: "I am married and my husband thinks I look like Leonardo Di Caprio."
I still couldn't digest the fact that Roshni's thinks her husband resembles the actor. She couldn't either and bursts out laughing.
The topic of conversation thankfully moved on to the latest award function, The Star Screen Awards 2009, where Adah was nominated as the Best Debutant Female.
Taking her best friend to accompany her, she was snapped by the paparazzi in her long flowing white dress on the red carpet.
Adah hates 'bling bling' kind of outfits. She likes to keep it plain and simple and says she can get ready in just 15 minutes before going on set or attending any event.
I've always thought that a good story with an even better photograph to complement it makes the best write-up, and this time there wasn't one but two pretty faces.
The problem was, I didn't have a digital camera with me but Adah and Roshni's five megapixel camera phone did the trick.
I requested both they lark around, make faces (which they didn't), act casual and tease the lens.
My wish was their command and the twosome were awesome with their cheerleader-like smiles.
Adah had her black curly curls going on while Roshni had the brunette 'do.
Give them a couple of guns, some tight jeans and hot hunks, they'll be ready for what I think can be the best ever photshoot to take place.
Dabboo, Subi, Rakesh, Mr Rajadhyaksh, are you guys listening? The time to say 'alvida' had come.
Roshni had to shoot off into town for some work while Adah had to meet her friend on her way home and I had to rush back to draft this sweet lovely story where Adah and Roshni were able to create their own brand of tough, cute and shy girls....uninterrupted.
