Actor Lisa Haydon says playing guitar is one of her favourite things to do. Lisa will be playing the role of Shonali in Bindass’ soon to be launched web series – ‘The Trip’. She plays the role of a feisty, free-spirited girl who is a musician.
She was asked to play the ukulele and to shoot a music segment all to be shot in one take itself. With her love for music and instruments, she took on the challenge to try out a new instrument and practised for two days.
Lisa said in a statement: “I’ve really liked playing guitar since I was a kid. It’s one of my favourite things to do. My character on ‘The Trip’ is a musician and when I was asked to play the ukulele, I jumped at the opportunity to try out a new instrument.”
“The song has an amazing tempo. The ukulele is pretty challenging but it was worth learning to play the track on it. I kept practising till I got it right and now that I have got the hang of it, not going to give up playing it anytime soon.”
‘The Trip’ is a fun and spirited coming-of-age story of four friends, who go on a road trip to Thailand. As one of the girls is set to tie the knot, the gang plans a road trip as part of the bride’s bachelorette. The journey though turns into an emotional roller-coaster that establishes the relationships they share with one another and with their own self.
Lisa got married to long time beau Dino Lalvani last month.
