From Ads To Silverscreen – Coco Cola Girl Onima Kashyap Is Traversing The Spectrum Like A True Star

From Ads To Silverscreen – Coco Cola Girl Onima Kashyap Is Traversing The Spectrum Like A True Star

The Coca Cola girl, who is also a professional canvas artist, found success in the  ad industry and soon is going to be seen in Bollywood. No matter what part of  the country you are living in, you have seen the poster of Onima  Kashyap, stylishly gulping the Coke. But in the sea of newcomers rarely do you  come across a face as innocent as Onima Kashyap. She is not strictly a  newcomer since she has already made mark in several commercials like Limca,  Nivea, Kalyan Jewellers, Lux, Lays, becoming a very familiar face on small  screen.

Being a gifted artist she portrays her paintings under the label ‘Onima  Creation’. She says “being an artist, I find ways of communication through  which I can express my thoughts and emotions to the world. Creativity is the  driving force behind both the mediums, be it acting or painting.There is a  constant urge in me to imagine and create things around me andActing is one  of the medium through which I can transform my thoughts into existence. I  have a vivid imagination and it helps me to pull off a character easily as it  makes me more sensitive towards it … It’s a spiritual process indeed as in order  to portray the emotion of the character we need to introspect and figure out  our own life journey. It’s like putting my soul out there and perform.One needs  to be really honest to create a good piece of art, be it music, painting or  cinema.”

   

Onima’s favourite commercial was for Limca directed by Ram Madhvani. The actor recalls, “Every ad came through after rigorous auditions. Onima finds  the ad industry incredibly professional while being exhilaratingly creative as  well. We asked her that her magic bricks ad made quite an impression when it  came out. Does doing ads contribute to the actor in you

She explains with a laugh,

“The real test of an actor in an ad is to emote in just 30 seconds as the script is  more concise. If I can connect to the audience, inhabit a character and tell astory in such a short span of time I feel I have done my job in a good way. I love  doing ad campaigns and I want to continue doing it.”

Onima has shared screen space with actors like Shahrukh Khan, Amitabh  Bachchan, Amir Khan,` Vivek Oberio, Anushka Sharma and Rajkumar Rao. Her  learning from these veterans, she says, is how to be an indulgent performer.  Her honesty brings out the truthfulness of the character she plays onscreen.

Actress Karishma Sharma on her experience working in Fastey Fasaatey

Tell us about your role in Fastey Fasaatey

I play new age NRI girl who wants to live her life with all the freedom without any interference from anyone as I born and brought up in London and lived most of my life in boarding schools. When I come to India for a small assignment and live with a friend in her home, I feel that her joint family and neighbours have too much interference in our lives so I start living alone here in India.

I come across a guy Aakash to whom I feel compatible so I start living in with him for some time as I have to go back to London after couple of months. As he has lied to me for living in with me so the conflict starts in his life.

So I will say that FasteyFasaatey is a very new age modern romantic comedy which have a traditional family backdrop. When I heard the narration for the first time; it was really cute, funny and emotional. The very concept of a live-in relationship seemed very fresh. I also liked the fact that, for a change, the guy was asking the girl to marry and girl is not interested. This movie tends to break the stereotyping thought process that’s what really fascinated me.

How did you bag the role

Amit Sir saw some of my work and called me through a common friend to his office. During the first meeting itself, he narrated me the script. After the narration, I immediately told him that I wanted to do it. Before coming me on board, Arpit and Nachiket were committed for the Film and that day Amit Sir sent both of them to watch a play at Prithvi Theatre sothat both can gel well on screen as best friends.

To my surprise, Amit Sir also took me to the Prithvi Theatre when the show was over and introduced me to Arpit and Nachiket. One of his friend lives near Prithvi Theatre and we all had a long chat. On a parting note, he gave me the script and told me to rehearse two scenes and to meet him next day at his office. Next day I met him at his office and performed two scenes and he told me that more or less I am on board but he needs to take his casting director nod also. Then audition process etc went on with the casting director and his team but I think that he has made up his mind to cast me on the second day only.

Expectations from the film

FasteyFasaatey is a cute and funny film – the one which you would like to watch with your family and friends. As two balloons on the poster in the form of F suggests that it’s all about F F – Fun and Family. I would like to add that it’s about flirting and friendship too. The team has told me not to speak much about the Film and let audiences react to it in a natural way. So I do not want to elaborate further.

Director experience

It was fabulous working with AmitAgarwal Sir as he knows exactly what he wants. I think he is very calm and patient. And the technicians team which he had on board were of high calibre. He used to listen to all his actors and technicians but finally what he wanted from an actor in the scene; he used to go his way only. I think that he was very clear in his mind.

Co stars experience

I grew a lot as an actor with Arpit,Nachiket and everyone during our acting workshops and on the sets. Also for those three months, it’s more like a family cum friendship feeling with all. Working with good actors and technicians makes you grow and makes you a better actor. I had a great time working on FasteyFasaatey I hope everyone enjoys watching the movie the same way we enjoyed making it.
