Not many would know that Scarlett Wilson, who is making a rave in Life OK’s Dare 2 Dance, has a few item numbers to her credits. Born and brought up in UK, the girl entered Bollywood with her ‘Imported Kamariya’ song in Shanghai. Post that she appeared in few other songs and also made a mark down South.
When we asked her on how she bagged the show, she shared, “I think Anil Jha (head of the channel events) liked my performances. I've done some big events for him and he's always been very encouraging about my work. He got me on board. Initially I decided against it as I was back home looking after my ailing mum, but then the dates changed and everything worked out perfectly.”
Talking about the experience, Scarlett said, “It has been a life changing experience. It was definitely the most challenging time of my life and there were major ups and downs. I was mentally and physically exhausted. But I wouldn’t change even one thing and would do it all over again tomorrow. I know I’ll never get to do the things that I did on this show again in my life.”
When asked what had been the most difficult task for her, she quickly replied, “It was the underwater episode. After an accident in my childhood I had been extremely scared of water and thus it was a hard time. During the first few rehearsals in the swimming pool I refused to go in as I was so scared; I felt extremely suffocated under the water and I found it terribly difficult to remain calm and breathe.”
The beautiful Scarlett was all praises for host Akshay Kumar as she said, “He is an amazing host; so perfect for this show. He dived into all the stunts and wasn't afraid of anything. We looked up to him and he was an inspiration to all of us. At first he was quite hard on us especially towards me, but by the end he showed us his real soft side.”
Talking about her future plans, she averred, “I hope to do some great stuff on TV and Bollywood. I feel blessed with whatever I have got till now and hope to continue doing some fantastic songs. Also TV has become a huge platform to get noticed, and I enjoyed the first experience completely.”
And finally what can people expect from this gori chhori? “I think people will be surprised with me on this show! People know me as an item girl, but in this show I have danced like never seen before. I have done some really daring stunts especially the truck week will shock viewers.”
Way to go Scarlett!
