Mumbai, Aug 21 (IANS) Marathi actress Amruta Khanvilkar, who plays a significant role in Ram Gopal Varma's 'Phoonk', says she has learnt a lot about acting from her nine-year-old co-star Ahsaas Channa.

Ahsaas, who was seen as Shah Rukh Khan's son in 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna', is playing the central character in 'Phoonk', a film based on black magic.

'It has been a great learning experience to work with the little girl as I have never acted with a child before. Unlike adults, children are natural actors and they don't care about practicalities of life,' Amruta, who plays Ahsaas' mother in 'Phoonk', told IANS.

Ahsaas comes under the influence of black magic in the film.

'She is a perfect actor and I even learnt from her how to give a shot. Watching her act was really a treat,' said Amrutha.

About her role, Amruta said: 'I play Aarti, who is superstitious and also believes in god. My role in the film is close to what I am in real life because I believe in good and evil spirits.'

Amrutha says she has no plan for future.

'I have not planned anything. Whatever plans Ramuji has for me I accept it. As of now he has not approached me for any other film. But if he offers anything, I will be glad to accept it.'

'Phoonk', which hits the theatres Friday, has Kannada actor-director Sudeep playing Amruta's husband. It also stars K.K. Raina, Zakir Hussain and Ashwini Kalsekar in significant roles.
