Mumbai: 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.
