Bollywood beauty Celina Jaitley who made her film debut in 2001, says her fans will see another side of her in upcoming film Accident on Hill Road.
“I can confidently say that whatever people have seen of me so far, they would see the other side of me in this movie,” Jaitley told PTI.
The actress believes that it her best performance as yet.
“I think it has taken five years for me to grow as an actor. It was all about going for the right script. I never went for banners per se,” she said.
The former Miss India, who debuted in Feroz Khan’s Janasheen opposite his son Fardeen, proved her acting skills in movies like No Entry, Tom Dick and Harry, Golmaal Returns and Paying Guests.
Accident on Hill Road, directed by Mahesh Nair, will release on December 31. The Nair’s directional debut is a drunken driver’s hit-and-run tale, that besides Jaitley, stars Abhimanyu Singh and Farooque Shaikh.
The movie shows how Shaikh and Jaitley cross path after a road accident. What happens thereafter forms the crux of the film.
Jaitley, born in Kabul to a Punjabi father and an Afghan mother, said she was groomed to be a soldier as she comes from an army background. Her father, V K Jaitley, is a retired Colonel and her mother, Meeta, an Afghan Hindu, was a nurse in the Indian Army.
“I was groomed to be a soldier but we plan something and something else happens,” she said.
