Why has actress Amyra Dastur highlighted her hair blue?
Nowadays, actors don’t mind going experimental with their looks for their roles. Bollywood actress Amyra Dastur had shaved off portions of her hair in chevron pattern for ‘Rajma Chawal‘ and now, she has decided to highlight her hair in blue for her role in ‘Prasthaanam’, which also stars Sanjay Dutt and Ali Fazal.
Amyra, who will be playing the role of an NRI, went by her producer, Maanayata Dutt’s suggestion, a source told Mid-Day. The report in the daily quoted Amyra as “I love playing with my look. I believe it’s our job as actors to bring characters to life. If that requires us to change our look, then so be it.” Dastur reveals that director Deva Katta was keen to showcase her character with certain quirks.”
“Based on that, Maanayata ma’am suggested we choose a fun, bright color. Fortunately, I was allowed to make the pick and zeroed in on this one since it has never been showcased before. Deva wanted to make the character likable and modern. Everyone loved the look, calling it ‘different and cool’,” she further said.
Talking about her other film, ‘Rajma Chawal’, co-starring Rishi Kapoor, Amyra said that the film has enhanced her dictionary of abusive Hindi words. She said, “NK sir (theatre personality) is a unique teacher. I had to walk around the room for three hours until I learned how to count in Hindi till 100. He would yell at me whenever I got a scene appropriately (on the second or third attempt), as a way to tell me that I could’ve done it right the first time. My Hindi abusive dictionary has definitely widened because of him.”
