Rukmini Maitra: Vidyut Jammwal is extremely grounded, so the work atmosphere is more comfortable

Rukmini Maitra is all geared for her big Bollywood debut opposite Vidyut Jammwal in Kanishk Verma directed ‘Sanak’. The actress has already met her co-star Vidyut and she’s quite impressed.

I am so excited to be a part of the action extravaganza. The story has a love angle to it and shows how people go out of their ways when love is in danger. The team is very warm to work with. I met Vidyut. He is extremely grounded and that has made the work atmosphere even more comfortable,” Rukmini shared with ETimes in an exclusive chat.

Speaking about how she bagged the role, the ‘Switzerland’ actress revealed: “The team was looking for a fresh face and they zeroed in on me seeing my body of work. They first contacted me when I was busy shooting for Switzerland. Then, they contacted me again. They asked me to send a video for an audition and I got selected,” said the actress, adding, “People are asking me whether acting in Bollywood was my dream. But it is not so. To me, the content of the film matters and not the language.” Chandan Roy Sanyal and Neha Dhupia will also be seen in pivotal roles in this action-thriller.

Meanwhile, Rukmini Maitra was last seen in ‘Switzerland’ opposite Abir Chatterjee. She will soon start shooting for another film titled ‘Kishmish’ alongside Dev.
