Happy Bhaag Jayegi actress Diana Penty was miffed when Mika Singh, known for his dim-witted and disgusting statements, made a rather disgusting remark at Diana. He made fun of Diana’s name. He shocked everyone present when he suddenly said, “She is Diana Panty, I am Mika Kachcha.”
Diana, who squirmed at the joke didn’t let it get the best of her and maintained her composure at the event. But when asked her about the entire incident she said “I don’t find these jokes funny. I don’t even understand how people laugh at such comments.”
Diana Penty’s Happy Bhaag Jayegi releases on August 19
She became a model after a family friend shot her photographs while she was still a student at Mumbai’s St. Xavier’s College. With her tall, thin frame and beauty she became a popular model in the fashion world snapping up contacts with many prestigious companies such as Wendell Rodricks, Sabyasachi Mukherjee and Rohit Bal, as well as stints at the New York Fashion Week.
When asked why she was not active in the films, she said she was looking for the right project to work on, and ‘nothing that came to me at the time really clicked, so I decided to play it by ear’.
Talking about Happy Bhag Jayegi character she says she plays the role of an Amritsari girl. “She’s very rooted, and what I like about her is that she lives life on her own terms. The film shows how everyone is a little bit scared of her and you don’t ever cross her. She really doesn’t care what she says. In a way, all the stuff that makes her a little eccentric is also what makes her endearing”.
She says she finds comedy a bit tough to do. “It’s not like in real life, where you come up with a spontaneous, witty response. When the comedy is scripted and you know you have to say it in a certain way, it’s difficult to be spontaneous. There’s too much pressure, because you have to deliver it in a certain way, and it has to make an impact. You worry that the audience won’t find it funny”. – CINEWS
