Malaika believes that the dress plays a very important role in portraying your emotions on a dance floor. After having said no to full-fledged lead roles in films, Malaika has finally taken the plunge in Bollywood with a full-fledged lead role in Suniel Shetty's EMI. "I only take up challenging roles even if it means choosing the right kind of songs. I never gyrate to raunchy numbers. EMI was the kind of launch pad I needed," says Malaika.
The film stars Arjun Rampal in the lead and Malaika plays his love interest. It is based on the recent stories about banks extracting EMIs from their loan seekers forcefully. Besides Arjun and Malaika, the film stars Sanjay Dutt in a pivotal role. Saurabh Kabra is directing the film.
