Amyra Dastur Struggles
'I like the fact that I'm an outsider,' Amyra Dastur says. When Amyra Dastur was asked, what was it like before you made your debut with Issaq? That was a particularly difficult period for me said Amyra Dastur. I was 18 when I shot the film, and it was released when I was 20. We finished shooting it in four months. The waiting period was excruciating. Because, as I recall, I was under contract and was not permitted to attend any other film meetings or auditions. And at the time, I had received a couple of really nice films. It was heartbreaking because I had no idea what to do. Despite my youth, I felt as if my entire life had come to a halt at that point.
Then the movie came out. It didn't do well, but I received a lot of positive feedback, which made up for everything. I was just like, okay when I got that kind of praise. Even my parents saw the movie and said it was terrible! My father said, 'I am so proud of you.' And I believe they were simply relieved. 'Can she do this?' everyone was wondering, especially my family. Coming from South Bombay, with my Hind being the Parsi Hindi that it was, and then having to play a Banarasi girl and all of that, it was a challenge. This was the deciding factor for me. Because, at the end of the day, if it didn't work, I'd probably be going to university and studying medicine, following in my father's footsteps.
