New Delhi, Sep 22 (IANS) Model-turned actress Aarti Chhabria says that Manoj Bajpayee, who is playing her love interest in the forthcoming comedy 'Dus Tola', was very supportive while filming the intimate scenes.

'Manojji has been in the industry for a long time and he knows very well how to make his co-stars comfortable. As we are playing lovers in the movie, the intimate scenes were essential. And during shoots I was looked after and put at ease by him,' Aarti told IANS in an interview.

'The age-gap between us didn't matter. We are actors and that is the real challenge in our field, to bring out the chemistry when the audience doesn't expect it. But I must say, Manojji took utmost care of me and didn't make me feel uncomfortable at any point.'

Directed by debutant director Ajoy, 'Dus Tola' is slated for a Sep 24 release, and also stars Siddharth Makkar, Govind Namdeo, Asrani, Ninad Kamath, Bharti Achrekar and newcomer Pallavi Sharda.

Set in a small town Sonapur, 'Dus Tola' tells the story of Shankar (Manoj), the local goldsmith, who is head-over-heels in love with his neighbour's daughter Suvarnalata (Aarti Chhabria) much to the chagrin of her father Daya Shastri (Dilip Prabahvalkar).

Aarti, 27, made her acting debut with 'Lajja' (2001) and later played a tapori girl in 'Awara Pagal Deewana' (2002), a bar dancer in 'Shootout At Lokhandwala' (2007) and was last seen in 'Milenge Milenge' (2010).

She revealed that for her role in the film she gained a few kilos.

'My role of a village girl in the film demanded that I look plump and fuller for which I was on an official rice-diet. I have gained four to five kg for my look specially.'

Aarti claims she makes conscious effort not to be typecast.

'If you look back at my work, you would find variety and not similarity in my work. It is my conscious decision to try different roles and challenge myself. I want to do meaningful cinema, but don't want to be typecast as off-beat actress. I am on the lookout for such scripts.'

So does that mean she has given a thumbs-down to glamorous roles?

'Not at all, glamorous roles are my forte. I don't want to close doors for any kind of scripts. My only concern is to be versatile and bring out my talent and not limit it.'
