Actor Hazel Keech who briefly went by the name Rose Dawn, and also starred in Bodyguard (2011) alongside actor Salman Khan, will soon be seen in an item number.
The song — Aa Aante Amalapuram is a part of upcoming film Maximum, by filmmaker Kabir Kaushik, which also stars actors Naseeruddin Shah and Sonu Sood.
When asked where she has been hiding for the last 10 months, Hazel says, “There were acting offers post Bodyguard, but nothing that I really liked. While I was waiting, I was approached by Sonu Sood to do this item song. At first I was hesitant, but when I heard the song, I loved it. I told Salman about the offer and he told me to go ahead and do it just for the fun of it. And that’s what I’ve done.”
The British beauty adds, “I’m a trained dancer and I have done popular music videos like Kahin Pe Nigahen in the past but I’ve not thought of myself as an item girl. Even while growing up in the UK, I followed Bollywood closely and have admired Madhuri Dixit’s moves. I was dead against doing an item song just for the sake of being provocative.”
According to the 25-year-old, the song is important to the plot of the film. “That’s why I’m in it!” she says. Reportedly, Aa Aante Amalapuram became a bone of contention between several stars, and Sonu paid a hefty amount to get the rights. The song has managed to attract a big fan following and has also gone viral on video sharing websites. Sources say that the song was originally supposed to be picturised on actor Tabu.
