Mumbai: Actor Girish Kumar, who makes his Bollywood debut with ‘Ramaiya Vastavaiya’, felt awkward when he saw the audience whistling for him at a theatre here.
"It feels weird that people are whistling for you. I`m happy that the audience is liking my work. I feel quite different, it doesn`t seem like I am seeing myself on the screen, but some other actor. It feels like an out-of-body experience," the 23-year-old said here Friday at a theatre.
"Ramaiya Vastavaiya" is a remake of Prabhudheva`s directorial debut, Telugu blockbuster "Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana". It released Friday.
The Hindi version too is helmed by Prabhudheva, who says he didn`t change the script as family emotions don`t differ from place to place.
"I think in India, brother-sister emotion, father-mother emotion is same everywhere. This film is full of emotions and (is based on) relationships. I thought Indians are same, so we didn`t want to change it," he said.
"Ramaiya Vastavaiya" also stars Sonu Sood and Shruti Haasan.
