Soha’s unique streak continuesApril 14th, 2009 - 5:52 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
Though she made her debut with young heartthrob Shahid Kapur, Soha Ali Khan has mostly offbeat roles like the ones she played in “Antar Mahal’, “Ahista Ahista’, “Mumbai Meri Jaan’ “Dil Kabbadi’, “Dhoondte Reh Jaoge’ and even the commercially successful “Rang De Basanti’.
She could never really be the glam chick. The Oxford University and LSE-educated actress has mostly played simple girl parts, and students, journalists etc.
Now she’s concentrating on another different “wet’ role in the movie “Turn Mile’, a romantic tale set against the backdrop of the 2005 floods opposite Emraan Hashmi. The serial kisser and Soha will definitely make a unique pair.
She’s said, “It is by far the most difficult movie I have shot for. “Getting drowned in 20,000 litres of water, being swept by waves and water being thrown at you throughout is not easy. There is a lot of action, cruising, long rain shots and I had to get drenched for 14 hours a day.”
She also has the action comedy 99 which releases next month to look forward to. It’s her second movie alongside good “friend’ Kunal Khemu. The first “Dhoondte Reh Jaoge’ of course didn’t do well at all.
She’s informed, “It is slick, fast-paced and has an international look. We have an ensemble cast of wonderful actors, including Kunal Khemu, Boman Irani, Vinod Khanna, Mahesh Manjrekar and Cyrus Broacha.”
After “Mumbai Meri Jaan’ she’s doing another movie on aamchi Mumbai- “Mumbai Cutting’ which has Vinay Pathak, Neetu Chandra, Sonali Kulkarni, Tara Sharma, Ranvir Shorey and many others.
There are tow English movies too – the horror thriller “Six Eleven’ and a mother and daughter relationship movie- “Life Goes On’, in which her her real life mother Sharmila Tagore stars alongside her.
She has Bong movies which she thinks are progressive too with Rituparno Ghosh’s new movie as well as Aparna Sen’s “The Jewellery Box’.
This Nawabzaadi sure is in a league of her own! She doesn’t even follow brother Saif. A different kind of survivor in B-Town! -Sampurn Media
