Actor Neha Dhupia is doing all that she can to realise dear friend Shamin Desai’s dream. Desai, who died last year, cast Dhupia, 31, as the female lead alongside actor Emraan Hashmi, 33, in his maiden directorial venture, Rush (earlier titled as Raftaar 24x7). And, after turning stylist in the past and shortlisting dresses for herself, Dhupia has now turned choreographer for the promotional track of the film.
“The song that features Neha and Emraan is a fantasy song. It shows the attraction they have towards each other and it gels well with the story. Neha has done a brilliant job as she has gone into the character’s mind and has done justice to it,” says Priyanka Thakran, Desai’s wife and creative director of the film.
Dhupia plays a media professional, while Hashmi essays the role of a media tycoon in this Percept Pictures’ film. “Neha fell in love with the music of the song and therefore steps came to her naturally. Her effort not only made the music video come alive but looking at how much she enjoyed the song, Emraan too, was able to let loose and it was a great take at the end of the day,” says an eyewitness from the sets of Rush.
The film, which is currently in the post production stage, is slated to release post July.
