Sheena Shahabadi, the latest entrant to the tinsel world, is making a rather unconventional beginning in Bollywood. In her debut flick TEREE SANG, she plays a 15 year old girl who gets pregnant by her 17 year old boyfriend (played by Ruslaan Mumtaz). This Satish Kaushik directed film comes with a message around teen pregnancy and has one of its major promotional pegs being sex education. As the film releases today, Sheena talks about her love for movies and how she bagged the role in TEREE SANG to turn out to be the chosen one.
One hears that she was always interested in Bollywood. With such inclination towards films, TEREE SANG wouldn't have been the first film that came her way. Sheena reveals, ''Actually years back I was also offered SHAKA LAKA BOOM BOOM by Suneel Darshan but at that time I was still in the grooming process. Also, I would have looked very small in front of Upen Patel (Kangna eventually went on to play that part). See, for my very first film I had to be very careful. I had to give my 100% and not spoil the chance. Since my parents belong to the film world, I used to visit sets on a regular basis. Also, it is natural to have interaction with a lot of people from the film fraternity. It was but natural that I pick up a film that gives me all - a good role and a good banner.''
''Actually even for TEREE SANG I didn't quite have to do running around or something; the film just happened as I was at the right place at the right time. At that time I was not giving auditions and was actually attending my school. I had gone to Satishji's office to collect some donation for my school. The minute he saw me, he asked me a plain and simple question - 'Would you want to work in movies?' So here I am standing in front of a man who has given break to so many stars and made some block buster films and I am being asked a question if I was interested? Then when he narrated the subject of TEREE SANG, I just jumped from my chair. I knew I had to be a part of the film,'' Expounds Sheena on how she bagged Satish Kaushik's message driven TEREE SANG.
So it must have been quite easy for her eventually. Sheena adds, ''That's right, though Satishji tells me that it was quite difficult for him to get the right girl. He must have auditioned 500-600 girls and finally zeroed in on me. I was the lucky one. Once he interrogated me on my background, he was further pleased because he and my mother had worked together in theatre years back. Eventually everything fitted in quite perfectly.''
