Geeta Basra, who was missing from the big screen since the past few years is said to be excited about her upcoming film outing. The actress has done a special dance number in the soon-to-release Zilla Ghaziabad that stars Sanjay Dutt, Vivek Oberoi and Arshad Warsi. But an insider reveals that what makes the song even more special is that giving Geeta company in the song is Arshad, who happens to her very good friend.
According to unit members, the two got along really well as they already share a great comfort level. Arshad who is all praises for the actress shares that it was a delight shooting with her.
"Geeta has the ability to transform from a cool city girl to a raunchy village dancer in no time. The song she has done in the film will make audience see her in a different light. I enjoyed shooting with her a lot," shares Arshad.
Geeta, on the other hand, reveals how Arshad had nicknamed her Rani Saheba on the sets and would make sure that everyone called her by that title.
Talking about working with Arshad, Geeta says, "I have known Arshad for quite a while actually and we’ve been wanting to work with each other. In Zilla.., we had an absolute ball while shooting. We would keep pulling each other’s leg and he had kept my name ‘Rani Saheba’ since the song is Ghaziabad ki Rani. Everytime I would pass by, the unit guys would follow Arshad and yell ‘Rani Saheba shot ready hai’."
The actress adds that working with both Arshad and Dutt made the experience even better.
"It was by far one of my most fun shoots," shares Geeta. Interestingly, the actress not only impressed the unit with her dancing skills, but also got Dutt to shake a leg with her in the song. An insider reveals that though Dutt was not a part of the song, even he joined in the fun. "Dutt was not slated to be a part of the song. However, when Geeta requested Dutt to join in the fun number and shake a leg, he agreed very sportingly," says the source.
The actress who was earlier seen in Train with Emraan Hashmi reveals that she is looking forward to her Bollywood innings this time around. And sources say that she has been reading several scripts too.
