From the tennis court to the acting arena - Leander Paes has made a good transition, if Sayali Bhagat, his co-star in Rajdhani Express is to be believed.
"Leander Paes is very hardworking. He worked hard on all the scenes I have done with him and during the workshop also," the 28-year-old said on Wednesday at the launch of movie's first look.
"It feels good that someone who has been so successful in his field does not hesitate to work hard in a new field he enters. His work looks good in the film," she added.
Sayali also believes that actors and media share a love-hate relationship.
"It has been eight years since I became Miss India and a lot of things happened. Like all artists say, there is a love-hate relationship between the artists and media, which will continue to be. I think we all enjoy this game," she said.
Directed by Ashok Kohli, Rajdhani Express also features Jimmy Shergill, Priyanshu Chatterjee and Gulshan Grover. It is slated to release on January 4, 2013.
