People watch films for one song, says Geeta Basra

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,’ said Geeta.

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.
