Payal Ghosh trained by Amer Kamra for her sports film

Mumbai– Actress Payal Ghosh is set to play a sportswoman in an upcoming Bollywood film. Renowned trainer Amer Kamra is training her for the role.

Payal Ghosh has Bollywood films like ‘Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi’, ‘Freedom’ and few Tamil films to her credit.

Sharing her experience of being guided by athlete Amer, she said: “Amer is no doubt helping me best to perform stunts. While I’m learning for my movie but this is going to be a lifetime experience.”

Talking about her upcoming untitled sports film, she revealed: “The film is not a biopic, it is the story of a girl who enjoys sports but her family forces her to get married and start a family. The film is about her struggle between her love for sports, having a career, and her family.”

Amer is a real-life athlete and bodybuilder who has trained several celebrities. He elaborates on guiding Payal for the film. “Payal is going to rule the screen as she is full of energy. She does her best and is very easy at performing stunts. She can actually be a real-life athlete. People will see her doing long jumps, climbing poles, etc. In all, audiences will get to see a different Payal,” said Amer.

Payal’s upcoming film is ‘Red’, a romantic thriller.

Yami Gautam: Isn’t easy to shift from one character to another

The 32-year-old actress will play a crime reporter in Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s ‘Lost’, a kindergarten teacher, who takes children as hostages in ‘A Thursday’ and an IPS officer in ‘Dasvi.’ She also has the spooky adventure comedy ‘Bhoot Police’ in the pipeline.

Yami said: “I have always wanted to play versatile roles. I am glad that filmmakers have faith in me with their material and are offering diverse projects. It isn’t easy to shift from one character to another.

“I remember being on the sets of ‘A Thursday’ just a day after wrapping ‘Dasvi’, and immediately after that, I was in Kolkata for ‘Lost’. I believe a character should not suffer because of the tight schedules.”

The newly-married actress says one should not take “pride in exhaustion”.

She added: “And for that, an actor should take a moment to breathe or just spend time with family in order to avoid burning out. One should not take pride in exhaustion. We need to start respecting that little space for a better performance.”
