The former Miss India actress Neha Dhupia (who has appeared in Chup Chup Ke, Singh Is Kinng, De Dana Dan, Action Replayy and most recently Maximum alongside Sonu Sood) has now been paired with hunk Emraan Hashmi for her newly released film, Rush. In a recent interview, she declared how tough it is to romance someone on-screen.
She states, “People say that it must be easy for me to play someone who is ultra-glam. However, the hardest part is to seduce on screen. You have to pretend it but make it look real for the audience. It is ironical.”
She further adds, “It is a challenge no less to be seen in this really hot avatar while not quite exposing your skin since you are a woman in a corporate set-up. All credit to my late director and his wife Priya for making me look like that.”
So what happens in the film? What is her co-star Emraan’s role? “The film is a journey of Sam (Emraan) who, as an earnest and sincere journalist, wants to bring the right news across to people. However, the core philosophy of the media house where we are employed is to report news which sensationalises. So while Emraan reports, I come in to sensationalise. You see a different Emraan in the film. Moreover, he is at the best phase of his career and life. We should have a winner in our hands.”
The film looks very cool and glam, anyone in particular to credit? “Credit goes to Shamim (Desai – who died last year) who was always ahead of his time. The film has been shot well. It is unfortunate that he is not there to see the release but then his wife Priya, who was also a creative director on the film, came forward and gave it a nice wrap. Our producers have supported the final product and the whole unit has been emotionally involved to ensure that Rush finds its due credit.”
