Happy Bhag Jayegi Was a ‘Challenge’, for Diana Penty


Actress Diana Penty said that she initially thought of playing roles similar to those of her debut film Cocktail but then she decided to challenge herself and hence chose a completely different character in the film Happy Bhag Jayegi. “I have a certain sensibility. I get bored very easily so when I read a script and like it, that’s something that I want to watch maybe and be associated with something like that. Also character-wise, I’d like to play different kinds of roles and not the same thing because I like to do things that are challenging, otherwise what’s the point of doing the same thing again,” said Diana. “In the beginning, after Cocktail, I thought of playing the same kind of roles, because it is safe. I know how to play it and it is very close to me. But then I thought about it. I had so many years to think about. Why not do something completely different,” added Diana. Diana returns to the big screen after 2012’s Cocktail. Regarding her break, she said, “There is a right time for everything and I was looking for the right script. I was meeting people, reading scripts, but somehow nothing ever clicked and this was the first script that clicked with me. It made sense to do a character after so long which is completely different from the first one. So it gave me more to do. It was a challenge for me.”Diana’s character in Happy Bhag Jayegi is that of a runaway bride. Does she intend to run away again from the industry? “I am going to do more films, don’t worry. I am not going to bhaago this time,” she said.Diana also spoke about the song Gabru Ready To Mingle Hai from Happy Bhag Jayegi.It’s a really fun song. It has been sung by Mika, who is a pleasure to work with, and choreographed by Caesar, who I have worked with before. So, it was very comfortable and fun to be back and do these steps which are very catchy,” she said.Happy Bhag Jayegi also stars Abhay Deol and Ali Fazal.
