I worked really hard for Lavani number, says Vidya Balan
Vidya Balan has earned brownie points for performing Lavani in forthcoming film 'Ferrari Ki Sawaari', but the actress says the act didn't come easy as she isn't really a dancer.
"I think I enjoyed this dance a lot. I have enjoyed all the roles I have played, but I didn't think I would enjoy dancing so much because I am not really a dancer, I have to put in a lot of effort," the 33-year-old said during the promotional event of 'Ferrari ki Sawaari' on Friday.
"But we worked hard, and when I reached the set we went mad dancing," she added.
In a complete red sari, Vidya sizzled on stage as she performed the item number for the audience. On public demand, she was asked to repeat the performance.
The song in the Sharman Joshi-starrer is called "Mala jao dya na ghari", and Vidya is seen wearing a traditional Maharashtrian attire in red. She trained for three weeks with a troupe from Kolhapur before giving the final Lavani shot.
Describing the song, Vidya said: "I can't believe I got an opportunity to dance to this one. It's so much of nautanki (entertainment), adaa (grace), nazaakat (elegance), so much of energy, so crazy."
Asked who was her inspiration for lavani songs, Vidya said: "Madhuri Dixit of course. I really liked Madhuri's song in 'Sailaab' and 'Sangeet'. I also admire Smita Patil in 'Bhoomika'."
Vidhu Vinod Chopra, director Rajesh Mapuskar and the film's stars Boman Irani and Sharman Joshi were also present on the occasion.
Directed by Rajesh Mapuskar, 'Ferrari Ki Sawaari' hits theatres on June 15.
