Mumbai, Feb 25 (IANS) Divya Dutta, who played Madhuri Dixit’s friend in “Aaja Nachle”, is having fun shooting for her first full-fledged comedy, “Hello Darling”. “The spirits are high. It’s one of those loud comedies that seem so much in favour these days. I’m having fun,” Divya told IANS

“It’s tough because I’ve never done comedy before and, that too, comedy in this riotous rhythm. But I hope I’m doing it right,” she added.

The film also stars Javed Jaffrey, Celina Jaitley, Gul Panag and Isha Koppikar.

The actress, who wowed the audience with her performance in Yash Chopra “Veer-Zaara”, has discovered an unlikely comrade in her endeavour to be funny in “Hello Darling”.

“Isha is so much fun. And she has done this kind of a comedy before. Remember ‘Kya Kool Hain Hum’, in which she played the loud, motor-mouthed paan-chewing cop? Isha knows the boisterous tune and how to take it up. I really enjoy bonding with her on the sets. She makes sure my spirits are high and the laughter is on even when the camera is off.”

So who says two actresses can’t be friends? Divya herself had a nightmarish time with co-actress Ayesha Jhulka during the making of J.P. Dutta’s “Umrao Jaan”.

Divya laughs off the memory-jog, saying: “One experience can’t sour my attitude to my co-stars. Apart from Ayesha, every actress I’ve worked with has been a dream, whether it was Preity Zinta in ‘Veer-Zaara’, Madhuri and Konkona Sen Sharma in ‘Aaja Nachle’, Aishwarya Rai in ‘Umrao Jaan’, Sonam Kapoor in ‘Dilli 6′ or Isha in ‘Hello Darling’.

“But my favourite co-star is Kamini Kaushal with whom I did the serial ‘Shanno Ki Shaadi’. We became close friends thereafter. Though I’m so much younger to her, we really bonded.”
