Actress Soha Ali Khan says she has no problems with resuming shooting for Ek Accident with actor Shiney Ahuja, who is currently out on bail after being charged with rape. “I have never said no (to shooting with Shiney). I don’t know where this came from. Whenever he will be able to work, we will resume shooting. He has always respected me and I have never said that he is guilty. We are both professionals and will work together.”
The actress, whose film Tum Mile released yesterday, says that she was skeptical about her pairing with Emraan Hashmi in the film. “I never thought we would be cast together in a film, or if we would have any chemistry. I was also terrified of his serial kisser image. Also, I have a very strong feeling that when we were shooting in chest deep water, Emraan pissed in there. I felt the temperature rise, saw his expression and I knew he had done it,” she says.
Recalling her memories of the Mumbai floods, on which the film is based, Soha says, “I was stuck in an unknown location for 40 hours. I spent the night at a stranger’s house, lost my slipper, and my phone stopped working. It was very scary. In fact, I became hydrophobic after that.”
Another thing that scared her as much as the Mumbai floods was working with her mother Sharmila Tagore in Life Goes On. “She knows my expressions and what I am going to do. Working with her was as scary as the Mumbai floods. After my first film, she had given me a long list of things I needed to work on. I am waiting for her response to Tum Mile.”
Appreciating her brother Saif Ali Khan’s “taste in films”, the actress says she would love to act in his production provided he’s not playing the hero in it. “In most films that he is producing, he is the hero. That doesn’t leave enough space for me to do anything. So if he does something different, then maybe. I loved Love Aaj Kal and I am looking forward to Kurbaan.”
