Amyra Dastur has been busy riding the waves, literally, in Pondicherry and other areas of Tamil Nadu for her upcoming web series, Trip 2. The actress has also begun shooting for Mental Hai Kya with Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut. While shooting for trip 2, Amyra’s social media was abuzz with images and videos of the actors having a blast on the set. But one particular co-actor, Mallika Dua, and Amyra hit it off like a house on fire.
The two who are starkly different individuals in real life struck a camaraderie that grew into a strong friendship. They cherish their differences especially with Amyra being a quirky South Bombay girl and Mallika being a hilarious brazen Dilli ki ladki. Their jokes and videos became so popular even on the sets that the director knew she had to cash in on this comedy gold. The director got Amyra and Mallika Dua to write and add more scenes to their part of the script. Amyra, who plays Mallika’s cousin sister, interacts with her in all these scenes. The two would sit for hours figuring out dialogues and actions that would make audiences laugh even more.
When we asked about their stint as comic writers Amyra Dastur said, “When we played off one another in the scenes, the ad lib just came organically. It’s great to work with a Director that allows her actors to improvise. Sonam loved it and encouraged our input during the shoot.”
If their one-minute videos were this hilarious, we cannot wait to see how crackling the series will be.
