Mumbai, Oct. 31 -- Shraddha Kapoor has joined the league of Kareena Kapoor Khan, Katrina Kaif, Vidya Balan and several other leading ladies. Her first-ever item number - for an Emraan Hashmi starrer - has just been launched online.
Excited to show off her dancing skills, the actor says, "Katrina, Kareena and many other actresses have done item songs in the past. They all have done a fabulous job. I am glad that I got the opportunity as well. I have given the song my best and I hope people like me and my performance."
Shraddha, who shot for the track before her June release, Ek Villain, says she received the offer after the success of her film, Aashiqui 2 (2013). "I agreed because it gave me the chance to do something I had never done before - show my dancing skills. It also gave me the opportunity to look glamorous. In my last two films, my looks were really simple. This was a nice change and I enjoyed every bit of it," she adds.
The actor is convinced that doing an item song at this stage in her career is a good decision. She explains, "As an actor, I always want to do something different and convince people that I can fit into different roles. This song might generate new avenues for me."
