Randeep Hooda is chilled out, says Pia Bajpai

Mumbai, Aug 21 (IANS) Pia Bajpai, who is making her Bollywood debut with upcoming film “Yeh Laal Rang”, says she is “excited” about working with actor Randeep Hooda and calls him a “chilled out person” despite his experience.

“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,” Pia, who has earlier worked in ad films, said in a statement.

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.

Pia, who hails from Etawah, is “keen to do a content driven film”.

“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 said: “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.”

Asked if there is any particular actor or filmmaker she is keen to work with, Pia added: “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.”

“Yeh Laal Rang” is currently in production. Randeep, who turned 39 on Thursday, celebrated his birthday along with his grandmother on the set.
