Famous fan: Alisha Baig
Newcomer Alisha Baig joins the long list of famous fans who state on record they're in awe of iconic Indian actress Sridevi. Excerpt from an interview:
"Alisha Baig isn't new to the camera, she has been comfortable and ease with it since she was a six months old baby. "My first film was with Govinda and Meenakshi Seshadri as a baby and then a four year old as Sridevi's and Anil Kapoor's daughter in Judaai, as a 12 year old in Lara Dutta's movie Andaaz and then as Sanjay Dutt's daughter in Zinda," says Alisha from Mumbai.
With such credentials why did she chose Telugu as a launch for a heroine's role? Alisha says the scripts in Hindi weren't exciting.
Her favourite idol is Sridevi, she says Sri is a picture of patience. When she couldn't get her lines right Sridevi had to give five or six takes for Alisha baby in Judaai.
"She understood we were kids and never complained about re-doing it so many times."
