The multifaceted actress, who has danced for the item song in Vedi, has opened up on her first song in Tamil. Sophie Choudry says that she agreed for the number because of two reasons. The first being her passion for dance, and the second reason is that the song was choreographed by Prabhu Deva. Prior to the shoots, she was told to rehearse the song with the help of the choreographer-turned-director's assistants and she practised with them for a day.
When Prabhu Deva met her on the sets next day, he told Sophie Choudry to show what she has learnt. But he changed his mind after watching her dance and thought her a few new steps for the item number. But this consumed a lot of energy of her and made her to believe that the actress has lost at least five kilos. However, she enjoyed working with the filmmaker and declares that it is not easy to please him.
The speciality of the song is that for the first time Prabhu Deva has made her to dance in an Indian costume for 'Mumbai ponnu...'!
