Model turned actress Amyra Dastur, is a popular name in Telugu film industry, is all set to carve her niche in Bollywood with Leena Yadav’s Rajma Chawal, starring Rishi Kapoor. Amyra will be seen playing a rebellious character in this light-hearted drama film. The film will see Amyra sporting a badass look, uncannily similar to Rooney Mara from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Amyra will be seen sporting an undercut with patterns on the side of the head with a lot of tattoos on her body. She even had the side of her head shaved for this role.
While doing Rajma Chawal she was also simultaneously shooting for her Telugu film Raju Gadu opposite Raj Tarun where her character is a simple girl next door girl, also the distinct opposite to her Rajma Chawal role. For Rajma Chawal she had to shave her head from the side to give a more edgy rebellious look, leaving her south producers no option but to custom make a wig for her to look the part in continuity for the songs which were pending to be shot.
Every time she faced the camera for her Telugu film she has to go through a complete makeover for her character which led the filmmakers to extend the budget of makeup artists. Now that the film is slated to release this month the whole experience with Amyra and the filmmakers is being remembered and laughed about.
Produced by Ramabrahmam Sunkara, Raju Gadu, which has music by Gopi Sundar, features Amyra Dastur as the female lead. The first song of the film was released recently and it received a positive response from the audience.
