After an outstanding performance as Chatur ‘Silencer’ Ramalingam in 3 Idiots followed by Dil Toh Bachha Hai Ji, Omi Vaidya will be next seen in action-thriller Players, shot in New Zealand. Despite a busy schedule filled with riveting car chases against Wellington’s hillside terrain, Omi didn’t waste any time in exploring the country’s bounty of attractions along with his co-stars. Talking about his adventure, Omi says, “Filming for Players in New Zealand was a dream come true. Our first location, Wellington, really grew on us as it was big enough to explore, but small enough to not feel lost in. Although it is known as Windy Wellington, I actually enjoyed the weather. The small quaint shops and little streets really promoted us to walk around and explore. And we were lucky enough to celebrate Abhishek Bachchan’s birthday during the Rugby Sevens victory party that happened all night on the streets. That was quite a night!

You keep getting these ‘Hottest’, ‘Sexiest’ awards and now do hot item numbers, too, while asserting that you’re the frumpiest among your sisters…
On screen, obviously, I do work to look glamorous, that is my job. But I don’t go to bed like that. I see some women walking in for a dinner with coordinated watches, handbags, shoes, and they’re stunning… and I’m like, how do they do that because if I have to go out like this, my outfit would be probably all of five thousand rupees. I’m not one of those naturally stylish people. I’m basic and I don’t honestly believe that all that adds to your attraction. And the other reason why it will never be part of me is because while growing up, I never felt attractive at all. I never got any attention in school. I don’t know why. I came here when I was 18, so before that… 17, 16, 15… the normal years when girls in college are having fun, not that I was trying to be a goody-goody girl, boys More >
