Dharamji is my mentor: Kristina Akheeva
International model Kristina Akheeva makes her Bollywood debut with Sangeeth Sivan's Yamla Pagla Deewana starring Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol in the lead.
Kristina is paired opposite Sunny Deol and it's been a wonderful experience working with the trio. "All three of them are iconic people in the industry and they are highly respected. They have so much experience behind them. During shoot, they would all give me a lot of support and a lot of tips. But the best thing about them was they were willing to listen to my ideas as well", says Kristina.
Further adding, "I love being paired opposite Sunny. His way of acting is very similar to mine and he's very passionate about his work. So I think we work very well together. With Dharamji, I shared a good rapport and I became very close to him. He's a good person, actor and I consider him as my mentor".
Interestingly, Kristina had seen the first Yamla Pagla Deewana which is rare for someone who is not a regular Hindi cinema goer. "I remember watching the first part and I liked it. I don't watch too many Hindi films but this one was good and I hoped to be in a film like that. And now it's actually happening! I can't believe it", says Kristina enthusiastically.
Kristina's also hoping this movie is a world wide hit. "I have a lot of family in Australia and I hope for my sake as well as theirs, this film is a success all over!"
YMPD2 is the sequel to Yamla Pagla Deewana that was directed by Samir Karnik.
