In a recent media interaction, Mrunal Thakur recalled shooting for the dance number, 'Kudiye Ni Teri' from the movie Selfiee featuring Akshay Kumar, Emraan Hashmi, Diana Penty, and Nushrratt Bharuccha. The actress spoke about the challenges she faced while learning the dance steps as she had to do rehearsals by taking out time for them from her other projects.
"It was wonderful to learn a different dance form. It has a vibe to itself as the lyrics of the song go too. It was very different from Bollywood and any kind of Indian style, so I am excited to do something very different which has action in it too. This pushed me to go out of my comfort zone and, as an actor, I should never restrict myself," Thakur said.
"More than proving to people that I can do something new, it was a challenge for myself. I wanted to own myself and own my body and own my dancing skill and be as smooth as the song is," she added while sharing how she tried to match-up her dance moves with the music and lyrics of the song,” she added.
She shared further that time management was also important as she was also shooting for a Telugu film at the same time while she was learning the dance steps for 'Kudiye Ni Teri'.
"I was shooting my Telugu movie while filming this song. I had to change my mental space which can be a bit exhausting. So that pushed me to work in any circumstances," wrapped up the actress, who is all set for her upcoming projects including 'Gumraah' opposite Aditya Roy Kapur, and the periodic drama 'Pippa', also starring Ishaan Khatter, Priyanshu Painyuli and Soni Razdan. She has also started shooting for her Telugu movie opposite south Indian actor Nani.
