'Imported Kamariya' fame Scarlett eyes period film
"Yes, I do see myself acting. My dream is that I should do a period film," said the new entrant in the Hindi films who has done various modelling assignments in Britain.
Talking about her training, Scarlett told us: "I have been performing all my life. I have not done anything other than singing, dancing and acting. I went to a performing arts school back home where I graduated in acting. I came to India some three years ago. I have been doing modelling ever since. I went through a few rounds of auditions and got this part (in 'Shanghai')."
Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, 'Shanghai', starring Abhay Deol, Kalki Koechlin and Emraan Hashmi, has opened to critical acclaim.
Even though "Imported kamariya" has been her first item song, Scarlett was not nervous and says that she was eased into it.
"If I had gone straight to the shoot without rehearsal, I would have been nervous... I was completely at ease; I knew exactly what I had to do. For me, I was more excited than being nervous," the model said.
"I was not worried about dancing, just worried about my facial expressions. Dibakar sat with me and we rehearsed a lot. He took me through it and told me how he wanted it."
Though she has been trained in strict dance forms, she prefers Bollywood dancing style.
"I have been trained in strict form of dance compared to the Bollywood's way of everything being loud. And I prefer this; this is the best thing for me... I watched old classic item songs and Bollywood stars. I just learnt it like that...," she said.
