Tennis champ Leander Paes is amused with actor Ameesha Patel's reported refusal to star with him in his acting debut Rajdhani Express, on account of "steamy scenes". Refuting rumours of any such sequences, Paes says, "I have never met Ameesha before so I am not sure what the problem is, but in the movie, there isn't a single steamy scene, as there's no love story."
He reveals that the story is about two antagonists, played by Paresh Rawal and him. "The film is a social satire and talks about human rights. I play an aam aadmi (common man)," Paes says, making one wonder if Ameesha turned it down since it is no "soda pop candyfloss" film.
"I have not brought out my song and dance skills. Once my acting gets appreciated, I will focus on other skills later. But I do have a good sense of rhythm," he says, adding that being a fearless man, he has always followed his passion and likes to reinvent himself.
