The official remake of award winning cult film IT'S ALL GONE PETE TONG (2004), will release this week. The Delhi girl, who has charmed the film buffs with her acting acumen in AWARAPAN and HIDE AND SEEK, would be seen matching wits with Rajeev Khandelwal in their forthcoming film SOUNDTRACK.

Sharing the reason to SOUNTRACK, Rajeev said, "When Neerav Ghosh (Director) asked me to do this movie and I was like, 'Do u really want me to do this movie.. There's music, drugs, alcohol, intimacy to its extreme. I have such a modest guy image'....Neerav replied, that's the reason why I want you to do this movie."


Talking about his Bollywood career so far, Rajeev said, "None of the movie I have done so far is Rajeev Khandewal's movie. Mujhme itni kabiliyat nahi ki main bahut sari movies ek sath kar saku (I don't have the capability to do too many films at a time)."However he believes, the movie SOUNDTRACK breaks all rules. SOUNDTRACK movie script demanded intense intimate scenes between Rajeev and Mrinalini Sharma.

Talking about dealing with such scenes Mrinalini said, "We would discuss the scenes at length. We would discuss all the technical aspects of the scenes before execution." Adding, "I'm playing the role of an attention-grabbing girl in SOUNDTRACK, but in real life, I'm not at all like that. I'm very happy in my personal space!"
