When Amyra Dastur and Mallika Dua turned writers for ‘The Trip 2’
Amyra Dastur has been busy riding the waves, literally, in Pondicherry and other areas of Tamil Nadu for her upcoming web series, The Trip 2. The actress has also begun shooting for Mental Hai Kya with Rajkumar Rao and Kangana Ranaut. While shooting for Trip 2, Amyra’s social media was abuzz with images and videos of the actors having a blast on the set. But one particular co-actor that Amyra particularly bonded with was Mallika Dua. They hit it off like a house on fire.hen Amyra Dastur and Mallika Dua turned writers for ‘The Trip 2’ –
The two who are starkly different individuals in real life struck a camaraderie that grew into a strong friendship. They cherish their differences especially with Amyra being a quirky South Bombay girl and Mallika being a hilarious brazen Dilli ki ladki.
Their jokes and videos became so popular even on the sets that the director knew she had to cash in on their camaraderie. She got Amyra and Mallika Dua to write their own dialogues and add more scenes to their part of the script. Amyra plays Mallika’s cousin sister in the show and the two would sit for hours figuring out dialogues and actions to make their scenes look more natural.
When asked about their stint as comic writers, Amyra said, “When we played off one another in the scenes, the ad lib just came in organically. It’s great to work with a Director that allows her actors to improvise. Sonam loved it and encouraged our input during the shoot.”
If their one minute videos were this hilarious, we cannot wait to see how crackling the series will be.
