Actress Subuhi Joshi, who plays Sapna in telly show Comedy Classes, recently did a spoof on Bollywood hit Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (HDDCS). She played the role essayed by Smita Jaykar in the film (Smita played Amrita, Nandini’s (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) mother). Says Subuhi, “I love HDDCS and have seen the movie a 100 times, but that made it more difficult for me to get my act right. Firstly, it is always difficult to play mother to a grown-up girl. Further, to add to my troubles, my character in the show is totally different from her big-screen counterpart. So, unlike the original Amrita, I am rude to my reel husband. In fact, I am so dominating and loud that he is scared of me. Because I know every scene and dialogue of the movie by-heart, it was not easy to do something exactly the opposite.”
Did she have any scenes with Sameer (played by Salman Khan in the movie)? “Yes, I did. They are simply hilarious,” she recalls.
