Actress Soha Ali Khan will be seen as a cop, complete with a khaki uniform, in the opening sequence of her upcoming movie Mr. Joe B Carvalho. She loved the experience. As Shantipriya Phadnis, she will be seen beating upto 20 goons in her entry scene. "I'm very excited to play a cop for the first time. I loved wearing the police uniform and beating up gundas (goons)," Soha said in a statement.
Explaining the scene, she said: The film's opening scene has me arriving in the jeep and beating up 20 muscular men, that's what motivated me to do this film. You won't see me in a normal costume in this film."
Soha has donned several avatars for the film. "I either sport the attire of a cabaret dancer, a fairy suit or a bikini; it was exciting for me to play these different roles instead of playing a single role as the girl next door," she added.
Produced by Bhola Ram Malviya and Shital Malviya and directed by Samir Tiwari, the film, starring Arshad Warsi and Jaaved Jaffrey, releases Jan 3, 2014.
