To say Anjana Sukhani is elated about sharing screen space with who’s who of Bollywood in SALAAM-E-ISHQ is an understatement. The waif like beauty made her debut in HUMDUM followed by SUN ZARRA, JAANA-Lets fall in love and now she has her hopes pinned on Nikhil Advani’s biggie SALAAM-E-ISHQ. “It’s truly a blessing to be a part of an ensemble cast like SEI. It’s my first big film with a big director and some of the biggest actors of Bollywood. It was a fabulous experience. I was treated like a princess and didn’t feel intimidated at all. I was treated in the same manner as Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan and others on sets,” enthuses Anjana who looked ravishing in the music video ‘Ghar Jayegi’ that released in 2005.
The damsel has more than 40 commercials to her credit including the Coke ad with Aamir Khan. She’s all charged to set the screen ablaze with her sensual ‘babujee dheere chalna’ track in SALAAM-E-ISHQ, where she tries to seduce Anil Kapoor. “The song is not completely remixed and has a lounge feel to it. Anil comes to the studio and this is the first time he sees me. He gets completely mesmerized by me and here onwards subsequent meetings take place between us,” divulges Anjana.
Anjana supposedly plays the other woman in Anil Kapoor’s life who’s married to Juhi Chawla in the film. Shedding light on her character she says, “I play a young 22 year old independent woman in the film. She is very confident, open minded and chilled out. She feels its okay to walk out of a strained relationship and start afresh.”
SEI is slated to release on 25 January 2007. The music is already scorching charts and with six lovable couples pairing up, the film sure looks like a tribute to love.
“SALAAM-E-ISHQ has 6 different tracks, different problems plaguing each couple and shows how they all are interlinked with each other,” concludes Anjana.
