One cannot do a Madhuri Dixit: Chitrangada
Mumbai: Actress Chitrangada Singh, who will be seen in her first item song in Akshay Kumar starrer `Joker`, says that although the track bears some similarity to Madhuri Dixit`s famous number `Humko Aaj Kal Hai`, she is not looking to repeat the act.
"I remember when Farah Khan offered me `Kaaffirana`…I had asked her what the song is all about, the concept and what look will I have. She just told me it will be kind of similar to Madhuri`s look in `Humko Aaj Kal Hai`. She had said we will try and get the same look," Chitrangada told reporters here. "But then that is Madhuri – you can`t do a Madhuri. You can only try, so we have tried to something like that," she said.
Madhuri`s song had been choreographed by Saroj Khan. "The hair style and the clothes for this song are somewhat similar to `Humko Aaj Kal Hai`. I had a great time dancing but unfortunately I did not get much time to rehearse. We did as much as we could. I must say it is choreographed beautifully by Farah," Chitrangada said.
The actress is looking forward to her next release `I Me Aur Main` opposite John Abraham, and `Kaam` with Arjun Rampal, directed by Sudhir Mishra. "We finished shooting for `Kaam`, it is a love story. It is set against the backdrop of sexual exploitation. The movie is set in an ad agency."
