Mumbai, Nov. 26 -- Bollywood actor Richa Chadda is set to play a cabaret dancer in actor-turned-director Pooja Bhatt's upcoming film.
Ask her if, with the song, she is paying tribute to Helen - the veteran actor who is best known as the cabaret queen of Bollywood - and she says, "Helenji has been an inspiration, and I look up to her, but I feel I am too insignificant to pay tribute to a legend like her."
Although Richa is a professionally trained dancer, she admits that she had to hone her skills for this song. "It has also given me an opportunity to perform as an actor. That way, Pooja has always been a huge source of encouragement for me," says Richa, who feels that dance in films should be exploited more as a medium of expression.
