One would think roles are so much more about what you can do for them and what you can bring to them as an actor rather than what a role can do for you! Where most actors bid adieu to the role and characher post shooting, Manasi Rachh took some shades back home from her character, which should stay with her all her life (and help her enjoy beach holidays a tad bit more we hope). A non-swimmer before she bagged the much auditioned for role of playing Alia Bhatt's best friend in Karan Johar's Student of the Year, the talented young actress went the length (and breath) to make sure her character had the finished chisel of what her role required out of her. Being needed to play an ace state level swimmer, Manasi took on her role very seriously and trained extensively for hours rigorously under Rob Miller's team (the action director/coach deployed on Chak De) to attain the perfect body language of a professional swimmer. From being a non-swimmer to getting every stroke right, Manasi has taken to the waters for life now she says. Excited about the release, the movie which stars Siddharth Malhortra, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan, is up for release on 19th October. Manasi Rachh was earlier noted in Yash Raj Productions' Mujhse Frrrandship Karoge. She has also appeared in various commercials and has been actively involved in theatre. Manasi's film Charlie Ke Chakkar Mein with Naseeruddin Shah and others in the post-production stage.
