Mumbai (UNI): Former Miss Universe and Bollywood actress Sushmita Sen, who was indisposed after she suffered a neck sprain, has completed the shooting of her forthcoming film Zindaggi Rocks which is slated for an October release. The shooting for the title song of Anurradha Prasad's BAG films Zindaggi Rocks, was put on hold due to Sushmita's indisposition. The song showcases the title of the film and Sushmita's rock star avatar has been interestingly shot in Capitol Cinema, a relic from the British era in Mumbai. When asked the reason, director Tanuja Chandra said the song was required to capsule the feel of a rock show, with all the glitz, the guitar, the crowd along with an old world feel, resplendent with antiquated atmosphere, the theatre was just perfect for the shoot, she added.
Since Sushmita injured her back when shooting for this particular song, choreographer Farah Khan and director Tanuja Chandra went about on a low key method of doing the song, since she was quite nervous about the actress injuring herself again. Tanuja says Sushmita gave an energetic and rocking performance for the song. Producer Anurradha Prasad was all praise for Sushmita's swift recovery and energetic shoot for the song. ''As a true professional, Sushmita not only completed her work but was gracious enough to work overtime. I am looking forward to work with her again in the future,'' says Anurradha Prasad.
The film which releases in theatres on October six also stars Shiney Ahuja, Kim Sharma and Moshumi Chatterjee with child star Julian. The music was released by Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh last month at a party attended by whose who from the film, cricket and political world. Anurradha Prasad is the wife of Congress Rajya Sabha member and BCCI spokesman Rajeev Shukla.
