Singer Shweta Pandit is making her acting debut with Bejoy Nambiar's "David" and says shooting for the film was as good a learning experience as going to an institute.
"It was like going to a big institution of film, and learning everything possible under the roof while working at it. I don't think I would have got anything better than this as an actor. So, it was a great experience," Shweta said here Wednesday in an interview.
Calling it a "huge honour" to work with Nambiar, Shweta added: "He is completely phenomenal... I enjoyed a lot while working in this film and I really had the best time of my life while shooting for it."
What's her character like in the movie?
"My character in 'David' is called Alice and I play a Mumbai chawl girl in the film. She is a brat and tomboyish. She is loved by everyone in the family," said Shweta, who has rendered songs in films like "Mohabbatein" and "Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl".
"David", slated to release Feb 1, also features Neil Nitin Mukesh and Tabu.
