[an error occurred while processing this directive] While Himesh Reshammiya is hogging all the limelight for his second outing as a hero in Karzzzz, surprisingly his leading lady Shweta Kumar isn't seen or heard much. Promos have been primarily focusing on Himesh while Urmila Matondkar comes second with her 'Kamini' act starting to make it's presence felt.

"Hey, but that's ok, I am not minding this at all," says Shweta Kumar who would be making her debut with this Satish Kaushik directed film, "I am not worried about being overshadowed in the film. Each of us plays a different character in the film and has his or her own space. Monty is the central character of Karzzzz so Himesh is bound to be seen most in the promos. Urmila plays the negative lead and she has an important part to play. As for me, I am the main lead with whom Himesh's character falls in love with. I am fine with whatever has been seen of me so far." [an error occurred while processing this directive]

But isn't it a given that Himesh and Urmila are bound to have maximum footage in the film?

"I agree that their quantum of work in the film is more than me. However, at this stage of my career, I should concentrate more on quality rather than quantity", Shweta says in a wise tone, "If you know your work, can prove yourself and show your talent even in the little bit of what is seen of you, that should be good enough for a beginning. What's the use if you don't know anything but are still seen throughout the length of the movie? That would be hardly convincing for the audience, isn't it?"

Concludes Shweta, "You don't want audience to come back and tell you that 'Ye kya chal raha hai, ye kaisi acting kar rahi hai'. I guess less is good for me here and I have given it all. After Karzzzz, I am now looking at directors noticing my work and giving me challenging assignments further on."
