The leading lady for Shah Rukh Khan in Farah Khan's upcoming directorial, “Happy New Year”, is literally a tall order. The girl needs to be tall, sexy, fresh and most importantly, a good dancer.
After all, she has to portray the character of a bar dancer. "And I don't mean the kind who can perform the usual dance floor movements. I want a heroine who is well versed with film dancing.
Like a bar dancer, she needs to groove to all the popular Hindi film songs. She should look comfortable dancing and not cheap of cheesy," specified Farah.
What's more, the actress also needs to good with action. "The leading lady in my film has some outstanding action sequences.Where will I find this exceptional blend of grace and guts?" Farah, who is urgently searching for a heroine, told director.With the film scheduled to go on floors in December, Farah is getting a tad bit worried. Her only consolation - her capability to find actors in the last minute. "I was ready to go on the floors with “Main Hoon Na”and I was still looking for actors. I found Zayed Khan and Amrita Rao just two weeks before shooting began. So I am sure this bar girl will show up soon," said the filmmaker confidently.
About the bar dancer's special moves, she added, "I can never do anything cheesy. So the steps would be provocative and tantalizing. But not vulgar. I think “Sheila ki jawaani” was just what I would describe as sensuous and aesthetic. That's the kind of dance my bar girl in “Happy New Year”would be seen doing
