The stunning Sophie Choudhary from Mumbai has performed an ‘item number’ in the just-released Vedi starring Vishal and Sameera Reddy in the lead and directed by Prabhudeva. The film, which is Vishal’s home production, pits him opposite the sizzling Sameera for the first time and is touted to be an out-and-out action-packed film, showcasing Vishal’s favourite act of bashing up the baddies.
Sophie, a former veejay with a popular music channel and a Bollywood import, has danced for the ‘item number’ choreographed by Prabhudeva himself. Of late, Prabhudeva has been concentrating more on film-making and has reduced the number of his choreography assignments an even if films directed by him, he goes for a separate choreographer for the dance sequences.
In Vedi, though, he found time to choreograph the song featuring Sophie Choudhary. Now that the film has hit the theatres 10 days ago, Sophie says how he danced to the tough movements set for her by Prabhudeva. “As director and choreographer, Prabhu has done a marvelous job and had put in a lot of hard work; he put in a great effort for the ‘item number’ featuring me where I have donned an Indian costume for the first time.
“I agreed to do the song mainly because of Prabhueva, a fabulous dancer himself. The song featuring me comes at a significant situation in the film and I was ably trained by Prabhudeva and his many assistants. Whenever I committed a mistake or two, Prabhu was always on hand to rectify it without pulling me up. I fee I’d have surely lost one or two kilos in the past month, thanks to the grueling dance training for the song,” concludes Sophie.
