New Delhi, Jan 28 (IANS) Bollywood actress Amrita Rao says she is jealous of her 'Victory' co-star Harman Baweja because he has several scenes with national and international cricketers while she didn't have even one in the movie.


'Don't sprinkle salt on the wound,' whined Amrita when she was asked if she got to share screen space with any of the cricketers in 'Victory'. 'I didn't get a single chance to shoot with any cricketer. It has all been Harman's privilege and I am very jealous of him,' Amrita told IANS.


Releasing Firday, 'Victory' is directed by debutant Ajitpal Mangat and is the story of a father's dream that his son, who is from a small village in Rajasthan, will become a national cricketer. How the young man becomes an acclaimed cricketer forms the remaining plot.


The film has cameos by cricketers including Michael Hussey, Brett Lee, Stuart Clark, Allan Border, Yusuf Pathan, Irfan Pathan, R.P. Singh, Ishant Sharma, Harbhajan Singh, Sanath Jayasurya and Dilhara Fernando.


About her role, Amrita said: 'I play Nandini, a medical student from Jaisalmer. The character is very strong and inspiring. Nandini's character is basically very vocal about her mind.'


Amrita was here Tuesday to promote a new range of watches by the Gitanjali Group at the Rajouri Garden market.


The actress, last seen in Shyam Benegal's 'Welcome To Sajjanpur', says she had 'a nice time working with Harman'.


'Not even once it come across that he was acting like a cricketer. He used to give such subtle expressions while shooting with the professional cricketers and facing bowls from legendary players,' said Amrita.


Amrita is confident that the film will do well even though it is pitched against the much-hyped Farhan Akhtar-starrer 'Luck By Chance', releasing on the same day.


'It wasn't easy to convince so many legendary cricketers to star in a Bollywood film,' she said.


After 'Victory', Amrita is looking forward to her next film 'Shortcut - The Con Is On!' that stars Akshay Khanna and Arshad Warsi. It is produced by Anil Kapoor.
