Riya sheds ultra chic image for her next filmJune 12th, 2009 - 2:06 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire

When Riya Sen debuted 8 years back in STYLE , the PYT made an instant impact. Her child-woman features made quick a few hearts skip a beat and one instantly knew that she pretty much fitted into the bracket when there was a requirement for an urban chic girl. She was always visualised as someone who was extremely stylish, fashionable and ultra cute, as evidenced in her subsequent movies like DIL VIL PYAAR VYAAR, JHANKAAR BEATS, QAYAMAT, PLAN and SHAADI NO. 1 to name a few. No one could have ever imagined her to be anything lesser, least of all being a construction worker.
However, the unthinkable has happened as the PYT has gone through a complete transformation a decade later by donning a new get-up for her latest release ZOR LAGAA KE HAIYA. In this fun film which features Mithun Chakravorty in the lead with a horde of children, Riya appears in the role of Chamki, a construction worker who works on Gulshan Grover’s construction site. A light hearted comic entertainer, the film also has Mahesh Manjrekar in the role of a contractor who is in love with her and their naughty antics promise to bring in much needed laughter in the narrative.
While Mahesh Manjrekar is shown as someone who is foolish with his intelligence and experience repeatedly falling short when there’s work to be done, Gulshan Grover plays the role of Bakshi, a conniving, sadistic and money minded builder who gets the job done at any cost, especially at the expense of Mother Nature.
Written and directed by debutant Girish Girija Joshi, ZOR LAGA KE HAIYA (which has released today) is a film about a group of children who, with the help of a homeless man (Mithun), overcome all the obstacles to save a tree from being razed by a money-minded construction giant and his contractor. -Sampurn Media
