Her latest starring role in matching dance steps with Hrithik Roshan and Isha Sharvani is pleased with the results of the Hide N Seek campaign. "Afsar Zaidi, who manages my work, told me about the ad with Hrithik. Knowing that he's such a fantastic actor and a fabulous dancer, I was like wow!... and readily agreed," says the trained dancer who debuted with Kisna.
Hrithik and Isha rehearsed four hours a day before they faced the camera. "It was a lot of hard work, the movements, the timings — we had to be completely synchronised. Since it's a club scene, I'm dressed in trendy yet classy outfits... the stylist was chosen by the agency. Having done Kisna and a Vatika ad, where again my look was very Indian, the Hide N Seek commercial was a good opportunity to break away from that image." For contemporary dancer Isha, dancing in stilettos was a new experience. "I'm so used to dancing barefoot that during the shoot I was afraid of missing a step and spraining my ankle or hurting myself.
"That would have forced me out of action for about three months. With a couple of films already on the floors and a few interesting ones in the pipeline, I couldn't risk that. But all's well that ends well," she says.
Admitting to be "a low-profile person," Isha adds that she has just wrapped up the shooting of Shyam Bajaj's next venture Rocky, opposite Zayed Khan, un der the direction of Suresh Krishna. While that goes into post production, "I'll be shooting for Ashwini Chaudhary's Good Boy Bad Boy, a campus comedy for Mukta Arts."
In the meanwhile, Isha will also have a release in Ram Gopal Varma's Darwaza Bandh Rakho, helmed by Chekravarthy. She describes it as "an interesting black comedy with a treatment you've never seen before."
A couple of other films are in the offing, too, she says. We'll have to wait to hear about those.
