I worked really hard for Lavani number: Vidya

By Hindustan Times

Vidya Balan has earned brownie points for performing Lavani in forthcoming film Ferrari Ki Sawaari, but the actress says the act didn't come easy as she isn't really a dancer. "I think I enjoyed this dance a lot. I have enjoyed all the roles I have played, but I didn't think I would enjoy dancing so much because I am not really a dancer, I have to put in a lot of effort," the 33-year-old said here.

"But we worked hard, and when I reached the set we went mad dancing," she added.

The song in the Sharman Joshi-starrer is called Mala jao dya na ghari, and Vidya is seen wearing a traditional Maharashtrian attire in red. She trained for three weeks with a troupe from Kolhapur before giving the final Lavani shot.

Describing the song, Vidya said: "I can't believe I got an opportunity to dance to this one. It's so much of nautanki (entertainment), adaa (grace), nazaakat (elegance), so much of energy, so crazy."

Directed by Rajesh Mapuskar, Ferrari Ki Sawaari hits theatres June 15.
