What does it take from a buxom beauty to become a fisherwoman? Well, only Rs. 100 is what Kim Sharma paid to learn tricks of the trade. But why did the itsy-bitsy babe want to know how to catch a fish? She bare all here...
Well, the not-so-in-demand actress has got bit of a role in Deepak Tijori's Tom, Dick and Harry where she plays the character of a women who sells fish from door to door. So, how did she get to master the art of fishing. Says Kim, “When I was thinking how to learn the tricks of selling fish, Deepak Tijori told me to go to the fish market and learn the art of selling fish. I was quite anxious how to go about it. If I had gone to the fish market, and if anyone had recognized me, the whole market would have been after me and it would have been very embarrassing. So, I acted smartly. One day, I heard a fisherwomen selling fish in my colony. I called her quietly in my house and gave her Rs. 100. I wanted her to tell me everything about the art of fish selling. I learnt carefully how she carried the basket on her head and how she cuts the fishes. She taught me everything and I spent only a couple of hours to learn everything. We also did a little demo were she put her basket on my head and my waist. She taught me so well that I performed the first take extrememly well. Deepak got so impressed with my performance.”Talking about the film, Kim says, “When I was offered this role, though I grabbed it readily yet I was little confused as to how I should go about it. Director Deepak Tijori told me to play the character of a chulbuli kind of women who sells fish. I go from house to house and sell fish, especially to the three guys Tom (played by Dino) Morea, Dick (by Anuj Sahni) and Harry (by Jimmy Shergil). They are living as a paying guest in Mumbai. While doing that in the film, I fall in love with Dino. But, all these three guys are after Celina Jaitly. It’s a good comedy film.”
Now, if Kim gets attention for her role in the film, then we surely know who she has to thank for her a dare bare stint. Nothing fishy about this one. Isn't it?
