Exciting role in Deva

While speaking to Hindustan Times, Kubbra Sait revealed her excitement about her character in Deva. “I play a police officer and I am really excited about the action I am getting to do. I am currently shooting for it and having a lot of fun. I am getting to see Mumbai like I have never seen before. I am getting to see the heat, the rain, the live locations, and it’s a high-intensity physical shoot,” she explained.

Working with Shahid Kapoor

Sait praised her co-star Shahid Kapoor, highlighting his talent and dedication. “In Farzi, Shahid and I didn’t have any scene together. This is the first time I am getting to work with him. He has a process that I watch from a distance. One thing I can undoubtedly say is that he is one of the most talented actors we have in our industry,” she said. She recalled their first meeting during a hosting gig for the movie Ishq Vishk in 2003 when she was just a teenager.

Celebrating 20 Years in hosting

Marking two decades in the hosting profession, Sait reflected on her early days. “I remember starting out 20 years ago in Bangalore and my first gig was on a truck, where I was announcing that (actor) Shah Rukh Khan’s show Temptation is happening in Bangalore,” she shared. She finds hosting appealing due to the “instant gratification” it offers.

Challenges and changes in hosting

Sait acknowledged the shift in the hosting industry, where popularity often trumps experience. She recounted an instance when she was replaced by a more popular name at the last minute. “My first gig ever in Mumbai, I had prepared everything and asked the event organizers to pick me up at 4 pm, but no one came till 4:30 pm. When I called them, they said, ‘We had to replace you. We wanted a known face.’ I have lost gigs for not being known enough,” she admitted. However, since gaining fame as an actor, she noted that she now enjoys a greater level of freedom and expression in her work.

Kubbra Sait's journey in the entertainment industry showcases her versatility and resilience, and her role in Deva is eagerly anticipated by fans and audiences alike.
