Sana Khan, who was last seen sporting a bold avatar in the movie, Wajah Tum Ho, will now be sharing screen space with Akshay Kumar in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. The actress, who has always portrayed glamorous roles will be seen going de-glam for the first time in this movie.
"I’m glad I got through this movie, and it feels good to be a part of something that has a social message to convey. This is the first time that I’m going de-glam for a film. My character goes with the film’s subject," says Sana.
The actress believes this will give her a chance for her to show a different side of her personality. "People have always perceived me to be a glamorous actress, but this film will show me in a completely desi look. My character will also have a desi slang, so it’s going to be different," she adds.
The 28-year-old, who will be seen as Akki’s girlfriend in the movie, says she was nervous around the actor.
"I’ve always been a fan of Akshay Kumar. I was petrified to share screen space with him, but he made me feel comfortable," she says.
While it’s a small part that she plays in the movie, Sana assures that she comes in at a crucial juncture and moves the story forward.
The movie also features actress Bhumi Pednekar in the lead role.
