Tanushri set to sizzle in item number

The scorching number was shot in the middle of the desert. Watch out!

Tanushri Dutta is on Cloud 9. And why shouldn’t she be? Her forthcoming film, for which she is going to start shooting soon, is Mukta Art’s Good Boy Bad Boy to be directed by Ashwini Chaudhary. The Bengali beauty has plenty coming before that. She will feature in an item song for Subhash Ghai’s 36 China Town directed by Abbas-Mustan. “It was all very hush hush and we shot in the middle of the desert. That made it a very special experience,” says Tanushri who went to Dubai and beyond for the shoot.

An item song for someone who is just two films old? “I have no inhibitions as I love item songs. Dancing is fun, too. But while I may do an item number or two just to stay in the groove, I wouldn’t do them just for the heck of it. Item songs do get you visibility. Look at how the Kajra re number topped the charts,” says Tanushri, who plays a pucca tomboy in Good Boy Bad Boy. “It is a typical masala film — a college romance,” she adds about the film. Also coming up are a couple of films with Raj Kanwar.

Happy at the way her career has shaped and with lots of big banner offers coming her way, Tanushri is brimming with confidence, but at the same time, she knows the pressure she has to handle as well as the responsibility. “Now the stakes are higher. Big banners are looking at me and I know I cannot behave like a newcomer. I have to improve with time,” she adds.

Tanushri is completely bowled over by Ghai. “He is a very nice person with an uncanny ability to recognise talent,” adds the doe-eyed girl from Jamshedpur who misses her family a lot. “We hardly meet these day because of my hectic schedule, but they are my backbone. You see me on screen, but there is a team supporting me from behind,” says Tanushri who, however, adds that it is for a greater interest.

A pucca Bengali the actor who is “dying to do a Bengali film” would not, however, take up anything that comes her way. “I know people are going to watch the film because of me. I would only take up something that is challenging enough,” says a confident Tanushri.
