Item numbers are like special appearances: Geeta Basra

Mumbai, Feb 10 (IANS) Music and dance are the USPs of any Indian movie, feels Geeta Basra, who is doing an item number in "Zilla Ghaziabad" and claims "many come to watch a film just for one song".

The 28-year-old joined filmdom in 2006 with "Dil Diya Hai", in which she was paired opposite Emraan Hashmi. In her second film "The Train" (2007) also, she teamed up with the same actor.

After almost five years she will dazzle on the big screen in an item song and said: "I love dancing and our film industry is known for its dance and music."

"Many people do come to watch film just for one song. Music and dance is the USP of any film. This is not a new thing, it had been here since Helen's time. I personally feel an item number is like a special appearance," Geeta told IANS.

Her song has been choreographed by Remo D'souza and she said: "He has choreographed the entire song and he has done a great job."

She describes the opportunity as second innings.

"I feel, I am blessed that I got a second innings in the film industry. I am getting some good offers. Besides every actor has their own share of ups and downs. I am glad that without being from a filmy background, I have made a space for myself in the showbiz," said Basra, who was born and brought up in Britain.

"Zilla Ghaziabad", said to be a political action-thriller, sees in the cast the hit team of Sanjay Dutt-Arshad Warsi, who tickled the funny bones of the audiences with their antics in "Munnabhai" series. They are joined by Vivek Oberoi, Minissha Lamba and Ravi Kishan. The film is coming out Feb 22.

"It's a very massy film, it's for the Indian audience. It is nice to be part of action packed films," Basra said, praising the film's content.
