Ariana Ayam was working as a graphic designer in New York. Shekhar Suman have been searching his lady for his movie “Heartless”. Shekhar happened to watch Ariana in a short film — made by his son Adhyayan for an assignment at the New York Film Academy. The director confirmed her as his lady to the role of heroin when he had found her. It was quite tough to convince her said the director of the movie, which is produced by Alka Suman.
She said, “I resisted the idea of doing a film. I had my whole life and career sorted and I was being told to give it all up. But when I read the script, I knew that it was no ordinary role. Shekhar said, “I wanted a fresh face, who would be able to hold her own against veterans like Deepti Naval and Om Puri, dishing out both performance and glamour. And, Ariana is completely natural before the camera.”
