Sargun Mehta is definitely riding high in the Punjabi film industry. Apparently Sargun’s debut Punjabi film Angrez was a big hit at the box office and also the last one Love Punjab is doing immensely well in Punjab and also in abroad.
Talking about her decision of doing Punjabi film Sargun says,
“When I watched a Punjabi film titled Jatt and Juliet, I really liked the film and I somehow realised the industry is making really good stuff and good cinema. I am a Punjabi and that’s when the thought came from. I got a call from the writer of Angrez when I was in Mumbai on 14th of February and I was pretty convinced but I was waiting for the script and we started shooting from 15th March.”
Sargun has got a lot of compliments for both of her Punjabi films so how does it feel?
“Sometimes it takes a lot of time for any actor to make the base in any sort of an industry. Even on television your first show may be a hit one or your second show might go well or your third show may go average . With Angrez being the biggest hits in Punjab and that being my first film I think that is a huge back hand for me. I have been waiting to do something like this for long and when you got such a great start it was overwhelming. I was careful in selecting my second film as I didn’t want the first film to be a fluke and with the success of Love Punjab I could prove that it was not a fluke and I am genuinely back again. An actor always waits for hits and compliments.”
Way to go Sargun!
