Sophie Choudry is going places! The actress has just replaced Malaika Arora Khan and Amrita Arora for an item number in Sanjay Gadhvi's KIDNAP.
Sophie said, "Sanjay Gadhvi and I have been good friends! He had spoken to me about this song three weeks ago. I usually have refrained from doing item numbers but I could not say no to this one was because it is a crucial part of the film. The song appears during the pre-climax of the film. It is great being a part of a film in such big way. Also it involved Sanjay Dutt and I'd do anything for a respected and adored actor like him."
When asked about she replacing Malaika and Amrita Sophie replied, "I am doing the song now and that is a fact! I am not aware that Malaika and Amrita were to do it. I was not in country when the news that Malaika and Amrita were to do the number splashed out in the media. I don't even care about it."
Sanjay Gadhvi said that Sophie was apt for the song. "The personality that Sophie has is in sync with the look and the song. I could not have wanted anybody else for this number."
Sophie had won accolades and applause for her number IN PYAR KE SIDE EFFECTS earlier.
