Amruta Khanvilkar is every Maharashtrian’s favourite actress. She rose to fame with Ajay-Atul’s hit number VAJALE KI BAARA and turned all the stones right to achieve the position she holds today. She went on to win Nach Baliye Season 7 with her husband Himanshoo Malhotra. Now, with her movie Raazi, crossing the 100 crore mark, she has created a special space not only in Maharashtrian’s but everyone’s heart with her superior performance.
Amruta is all set to enter the digital world with widely popular portal Bollywood Hungama’s, new HUNGAMA ORIGINAL’S web series titled DAMAGED.
After playing Pakistani housewife Munira in film Raazi, now Amruta will be seen playing a Christian modern girl, Lavina in Hungama’s web series Damaged. The character demanded the actor to smoke cigarettes. Amruta is a non-smoker in real life; hence, it was quite difficult for her to get the correct attitude of puffing the cigarette in. But, she is a perfectionist who can go to any extent to make sure her role is perfectly portrayed.
According to the sources, the 33-year-old actor literally puffed whooping 40 cigarettes in a day to get the shot right, damaging her vocal cords for almost two weeks.
When asked about it
Amruta said, “Yes! It’s true that I puffed around 40 cigarettes in a day, for a shot, as I wanted my character to be perfectly portrayed as and how the script demanded. Being absolute virgin towards smoking, it was quite a challenge for me to get comfortable into the smoking skin and get the right body language and attitude of smokers. I gathered courage and went ahead only for the sake of my work. I always yell at my smoker friends and try my best to kill their smoking habits. I tried my best to depict a regularly-smoking woman. I hope people will like my character as it’s quiet different and thrilling at the same time.”
