Anya Singh excited about her debut
The actress will be making her debut in Habib Faisal's Qaidi Band, which will also see the launch of Aadar Jain, grandson of late actor-filmmaker Raj Kapoor
Anya Singh, who is all set to make her debut with the upcoming film Qaidi Band, says she always wanted to work with the movie’s director Habib Faisal. “I've watched Ishqazaade and Do Dooni Chaar and I think they are absolutely brilliant movies. They were also very different from each other, but topic-based. So I really wanted to work with him,” she says.
Faisal launched Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra in his 2012 movie Ishaqzaade, produced by Yash Raj Films. So, what made her say yes to Qaidi Band? “I think the story, and the fact that it was so different and unconventional. The story has a lot of substance to it. When Habib sir narrated the story to me, I absolutely loved it,” she says, and goes on to add, “Apart from that, my character and that the film was such a performance-based movie as opposed to like your normal glamorous sing-song film. I think that attracted me to this film.”
Qaidi Band, a film about undertrials and how some charazcters get together to form a band in jail, will also see the launch of Aadar Jain, grandson of late actor-filmmaker Raj Kapoor.
