Actress Soha Ali Khan beats 20 people in her introduction scene of her upcoming film, Calling Mr. Joe B Carvalho, and that is what sealed the deal for her.
"I got convinced in the first five minutes of the narration because I loved my introduction scene in the film. I was told that in your introduction scene you will have to beat 20 men and I said yes," the 34-year-old said here Friday at the inauguration of Glamour Style Walk, a high-end jewellery exhibition.
"I have always wanted to do some action because I believe I am very fit and I enjoy gymming and playing badminton and fighting. So I thought I should do it," she added. Soha plays a police inspector named Shantipriya Phadnis in the film and also learnt to do cartwheel for her role.
"Shantipriya Phadnis is not a normal cop. She is very good at her job but there is a huge amount of humour and comic element to it. But yes I did take four kick-boxing classes and I learnt how to do a cartwheel which I had never done before in my life," Soha said.
Being directed by Samir Tewari, Calling Mr. Joe B Carvalho stars Arshad Warsi in the title role. Javed Jaffrey, Vijay Raaz, Shakti Kapoor, Geeta Basra, Vrajesh Hirjee, Himani Shivpuri also plays prominent role in the film.
