Amrita Arora who was a resident of Andheri had now moved to Bandra. "It's a dream house. And my parents have shifted with me. Everyone dreams of owning a house that would be just perfect. I've reached that dream, I guess."
With the shift of residence she's now a stone's away from her sister Malaika. "So we are all at a shouting distance from one another," Amrita shouts from Prague. She's extremely excited about having signed on a remake of the 1973 hit Victoria 203 where she gets to play Saira Banu's role. "I'm very excited because a lot of people feel I resemble Saira Banuji. In half the film I get to masquerade as a man. And yes I'll be doing Sairaji's sizzling towel dance in Victoria 203," laughs Amrita.
In the original Saira Banu had brought the house down doing the sensuous dance number Thodasa Thehro. It remains to be seen whether the re-makers - producer Kamal Sadanah and director Ananth Mahadevan retain the original Lata Mangeshkar track.
After Priyanka Chopra in Don and Aishwarya Rai in Umrao Jaan who have been given the thankless task of re-doing roles immortalized by Zeenat Aman and Rekha, respectively, it's petite Amrita's turn to do a Saira Banu. "Please don't scare me. Comparisons are so paralyzing."
