The setup is quite big, the scale is large and the grandeur amazing. This is not going to be one of those regular music video that you get to see all the time.” “I must have posed at least a dozen odd questions in front of the makers of the music video before consenting for it. I wanted to be 100% sure”, smiles Geeta who begins shoot for the music video today. Directed by Colossus, the outfit run by video directors Ajay and Lovel Arora, the video is pasteurized on Geeta and a new male model named Rahul. “Lovel is a good friend of mine and I am happy to be finally working with him. When he came to meet me, he knew and hence further convinced me that I was perfect for it”, adds Geeta. The video is being pasteurized for a song by popular singer Sukhshinder Shinda who also features in the video. A well-known UK based Bhangra producer and artist; he has worked on over 200 albums while producing numerous hit songs in last couple of decades.
Though she has done only two films in her short career so far, Geeta Basra ensured that her performance in both the films didn’t go unnoticed. Whether it was Dil Diya Hai or The Train (both of which incidentally had Emraan Hashmi opposite her), Geeta did gain appreciation for her contrasting acts in the two films. If she was a simple NRI girl next door in Dil Diya Hai, she played the part of seductress/con-woman with aplomb in The Train, hence enacting a negative role pretty early in her career. None of the films did well at the box office but Geeta didn’t loose heart. Instead of choosing any random project coming her way that merely wanted to showcase the glam side of hers, she opted to wait. Now, close to one and a half year after the release of The Train, Geeta is ready to face the camera again. Though this won’t be for a film shoot, she is still excited enough because after a lot of persuasion, she has consented to be a part of a music video. Says Geeta, “I may have been termed choosy all this while but I don’t have any regrets about it. That’s the way I want to shape my career. I am young with age on my side and any wrong step would have been disastrous. I would rather wait and watch than burn my fingers.” What prompted her to say yes to a music video? “The sheer vision of the director and an emotional story that runs with it”, Geeta is prompt in replying, “Apart from lead roles, there were offers for item songs and music videos but I didn’t want to do anything where my heart was not set in. This one does sound exciting though.
