Talking about her upcoming film Daisy said:
“A close friend told me that though I have been working in Bollywood, I should do a film in my mother tongue whenever I get the chance. I feel lucky to have found a good project to work in and that’s the reason I am doing a Gujarati film. When director Jayant Gilatar narrated the script to me, it immediately grabbed my attention. This film is different from what I have done till date. Besides pushing me on the physical front, I will also have to work on my language, as I speak Mumbaiya Gujarati.”
When further asked if she would take up more regional films Daisy said narration.
“As far as I am getting interesting projects to work in, it doesn’t matter whether it’s Bollywood, South or Gujarati. The script is the hero for me.”
In ‘Gujarat 11’, Daisy will be seen enacting a football coach who builds a football team consisting of kids from juvenile homes and leads them to glory. The film will be shot in different parts of Mumbai and Gujarat.
The rest of the cast of the film is yet to be made official and the film directed by Jayant Gilatar is expected to go on floor by 11th of February 2019.
