Deeksha never felt overshadowed by Armaan

MUMBAI: Actress Deeksha Seth is soon going to make her Bollywood debut with `Lekar Hum Deewana Dil” and says that despite her co-star being Armaan Jain – the grandson of late actor-filmmaker Raj Kapoor – she feels secure.

Deeksha made her acting debut in the Telugu drama film `Vedam` in 2010 and went on to feature in quite a few Tamil and Telugu movies like `Rajapattai` and `Wanted`.

`I don’t feel overshadowed at all because it’s not like I got to know he is a Kapoor now. If in the movie, I didn’t have a good role then definitely I would’ve been insecure. When you see the movie you’ll see there is a fair division between my and Armaan’s work,` Deeksha told IANS in a telephonic interview from Mumbai.

Armaan is also the cousin of actors Ranbir, Kareena and Karisma. Deeksha feels that it is obvious for people to be curious about a star kid.

“I feel it’s normal to have curiosity about someone who comes from a film family. Everyone wants to know what’s happening,” she added.

“Lekar Hum Deewana Dil” will release Friday.

Co-produced by Eros International and Illuminati Films, the film is directed by Arif Ali.
The former Miss India contestant is also excited about delivering dialogues in Hindi.

`I look at it as my debut because I am working in my mother tongue. The language has made me more confident rather than my prior experience,` said the actress.

Deeksha, who has already signed a two-movie deal with Saif Ali Khan’s Illuminati Films, is also willing to take up television assignments.

`TV is also okay. TV has some really interesting stuff nowadays… But I am not made for daily soaps. I can’t do the same character for years,` she said.
