But the moment the director says cut. I'm like fine I don't want to look at the guy. I don't want to think about what I have done with him. It's just back to what's the next scene. So I don't know why there are these leading actors in Bollywood today who have issues with kissing.
What are you then? Are you an actor or are you an activist or are you trying to be a reformer?
Are you trying to show the world the path of righteousness because if that is it then fine go ahead. But don't do it here in Bollywood. Bollywood is about entertainment and I feel that if you can't do it the right way then fine. I mean just shut up and let others do it. Why criticize people who are good at their job. I believe that there was a time when I was making mistakes in my career but now I believe that there is nothing wrong in being bold. What makes it different is the treatment the lightning and the subtleness to what degree you do it. But then not wanting to do it is something very personal.
How bold is your item song in Raqeeb?
I wouldn't call that bold because I'm all dressed up. So had I been topless I would definitely gone on record and said that it's bold. But then no it is quite exciting, it has been sung by Alisha Chinoy and the music is by Pritam. The song is peppy and I am sure that once it's out it would be played across all the clubs in the town and people and the youth would love it.
The picturisation is good. I have not been portrayed as an item girl. I've been portrayed as glamorous girl who has with subtle moves and no pelvic movements. The kind of steps you see in most item songs, not those movements. Very subtle, very sensuous. It's just slight grooving and the end product looks quite amazing. The visuals are really awesome.
So I am just waiting and hoping that people get to see the new Sherlyn Chopra in this new glamorous avatar.
Given an opportunity will you appear in Playboy magazine?
Of course I would love to. I would want to make India proud. I would love to make India proud by winning an Oscar. There are so many things I could do to make India proud. Whether others feel the same or not is debatable.
Yes but I am not keen on centre spread. I am keen on appearing on the cover. So given an opportunity I would definitely love to be on Maxim. I would love to be on all these adult magazines.
How did you decide on becoming a singer?
Today everybody is an actor, everybody is singer, and everybody is a diva. You never know who the real ones are. So I said it to myself that its time I do something about it and I will show the world the difference between the fake ones and the real ones. And very soon you would know what it means to compose a hip hop genre kind of music.
Tell us about your upcoming music video
It is definitely one of its kinds. The reason I say this is because it's a fusion that is unique. The fusion of Indian melodious and western hip hop. Just wait and watch and decide.
The first video is going to be out soon. It's going to be directed by Pralahad Kakaad. The less said the better. I could just go on and on saying the visuals are going to be like this, like that and awesome. So less, the better about my video. All I can say is that it's going to be my debut video and Pralahad Kakaad's debut video and together we are going to create magic.
