Already a talented singer, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya is ready to make her film debut with Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Jawan’. She plays one of the six girls who form the core team of SRK in the film.
On the day of ‘Chaleya’ release, social media was flooded with praise for SRK and Nayanthara’s chemistry. And what would be a better day to bring you, which Sanjeeta can only tell IndiaToday.in about partnering with Nayanthara!
Not only that, but Sanjeeta also told us about the relationship she has developed with her fellow ‘Jawan’ girls, Priyamani, whom she affectionately calls Pillu, and Sanya Malhotra.
Excerpts from the interview:
‘NAYANTHARA IS A POWERFUL WOMEN’
We asked Sanjeeta Bhattacharya about working with Nayanthara on ‘Jawan’. She told us, “I share screen space with Nayanthara and it’s amazing. First of all, seeing a woman in power is always unbelievable. She looks like a powerful woman. She asks for respect. When she stepped onto the set, everyone was like her here. You can feel it. There’s an aura and I really like that because sometimes women are a bit shy or don’t speak their mind but Nayanthara Ma’am said so and was extremely humble. One thing I’ve learned from these extremely successful people is that along with incredible success comes great humility. And that’s what I learned from working with these amazing, talented actors.”

‘PRIYAMANI IS A GREAT PERSON TO BE OUT’
Regarding working with Priyamani and the core women of ‘Jawan’, Sanjeeta said, “She is such a lovely person. Oh my God! The six of us girls, we became a family during filming. We are so close in real life, it’s hard to find.. Mr. Mukesh Chhabra did an amazing job bringing us all together (laughs) because we are such good friends. ! I consider some of them my best friends. We go out to lunch, make plans together. We are on the same page on almost everything, we share our ups and downs as well as all our frustrations, fears and all our joys together. And it’s great to be on the same boat.”
The actor-singer added, “And Priyamani..err..Pillu (laughs) is such a great person to be around because she will always have a little advice to give, especially to someone like that. I. What a gift it is to have someone I can call up and say, ‘Hey, I need help. Can you tell me how to do this better or is there any other way that I can do it?’ And she will be there. And she has many years of experience and is a winner of the National Award. More than you could ask for?”
‘SANYA IS GREAT WITH MY ART’
When we asked her about working with Sanya Malhotra, Sanjeeta was full of praise for her. She said, “Like Pilloo, with Sanya, I have exactly the right things to say about her. She is an amazing actress. I admire her. She’s an incredible dancer and just a really nice person, which is what I look for in a friend. Not only kind, but also very benevolent and generous with their art. I feel like we all, especially women, need other women to say nice things about each other in a room full of people who need to hear it. And I feel like I found those types of women through this movie.”
Also starring Vijay Sethupathi as the main villain, ‘Jawan’ will premiere on September 7.
