First NISHABD, then GHAJINI and now HOUSEFULL - It is quite obvious that young Jiah Khan is picking films which are coming from reputed banners and star the biggest of the names.
"This way I guess I can afford to pat my back because I have always been very good at picking up things", says Jiah who agrees that she is very happy with the final product despite HOUSEFULL being a three heroine project, "Everyone was so helpful. Also, there were no issues around language or diction. I learnt very fast for NISHABD while even for GHAJINI, we had a dialogue coach. Similarly in HOUSEFULL, even though I have got quite a few monologues, it was never an issue. Of what I have seen of my portions in the film, I am pretty pleasantly shocked."
Well, Jiah did shock quite a few by appearing fully clothed in a white dress for her introduction shot in the First Look of HOUSEFULL. Really, not many were expecting this from Jiah Khan who had resulted in soared temperatures for quite a few after NISHABD and GHAJINI.
Laughs Jiah, "Actually even I was so shocked when I saw myself on camera. Sajid's (Khan) idea was to show a completely different side of my persona in the promo so that audience attention is immediately attracted. I am glad it got the desired results. In fact my mom also just loved me in this look. During last few weeks, so many people have SMSed me on this look. Perhaps I should do more such films where I come across as a fully covered woman."
Well, one wonders whether her fans would take this announcement too kindly!
