We all know the importance of an 'item number' in films these days. From Urmila Matondkar and Raveena Tandon to Isha Koppikar and Sameera Reddy, time and again all these glam beauties have set the mercury levels rising and the male hearts panting for more. Joining them now is Sweta Keswani who was last seen on television in Aruna Irani's show 'Des Mein Niklla Hoga Chand' and Rajat Mukherjee's Sonu Nigam flick Love In Nepal. Sweta has performed this really hot number called 'Qurbaan' a la Mehbooba style (the all-time hit Helen number from Sholay) in director TLV Prasad's and producer Mahendra Dhariwal's forthcoming film 'Tauba Tauba' starring Payal Rohatgi. Says Sweta, "It's this folksy kind of number where I have danced to Bosco-Caesar's amazing choreography. The tune is very catchy and I have dressed in some really hot clothes including J-Lo kind of skirt. My look is very different", she says excitedly.
Shot in a 'disco-like' set in Pune, Sweta says, "There was no time for rehearsals, I just had to learn the steps then and there and go for a take. But it was really good fun". The film, which is complete Sweta says should release in a couple of months 'though the video of that song would soon go on air'.
Ask Sweta what her gut feeling is about the number and she laughs, "Well, I have lost all faith in my gut feeling after the debacle of Love In Nepal. In case of item numbers it's all about 'if the number clicks' and I hope it does".
Apart from the item number another thing she's looking forward to is 'a Raghu Romeo-style film shot in the DVD format called 'Jackpot' about five guys and this dance-bar girl who plan this robbery. It's a Masti-style sex comedy directed by Sanjay Khanna."
Looks like viewers will get to see more of Sweta Keswani in the coming weeks.
