New Delhi, July 14 (IANS) Actress Celina Jaitely may not have too many hits to her credit, but with two foreign productions in hand the Bollywood beauty says that the “whole world” knows her! The former Miss India even compares her career with that of the gorgeous Madhuri Dixit.
“Nobody knew Madhuri Dixit before ‘Ek Do Teen’, though she had done films before she did the song,” Celina told IANS over phone from Mumbai. “But the whole world knows Celina Jaitley, I have a glamorous and sexy image. People recognise me all over the world,” the actress remarked.
Asked about her ever-increasing glamour quotient, she said: “I must have done a good job and that is the reason why I’m famous for my glamorous image. I have thousands of fans all over the world. People like the way I act and this image has given me a lot.
“There are many actors who’ve done multiple roles but still suffer from an identity crisis and, on the contrary, I need bodyguards all the time because of my status,” added Celina.
So isn’t she afraid of being typecast as a sex symbol? “My job is to give the audience what they like and I do that. It’s been four and a half years in the industry and I have achieved a lot.” Celina has now joined the item song bandwagon too. She is set to sizzle in Balaji Motion Picture’s “C Kkompany” opposite Tusshar Kapoor.
“I am doing this item song because I have called the shots here and nobody else has. It is a Punjabi song and I always wanted to do a Punjabi number because my dad is a Punjabi. “Also Tusshar is a very good friend and I’m very close to Balaji (Productions),” she added.
And is the actress dating anybody? “Celina Jaitley is not in a relationship. She is in a relationship only with her career which is a great love-affair,” she quipped.
Celina has been roped in for 15 projects that will keep her busy until next year. Apart from “C Kkompany”, she also has two foreign productions by Ken Khan – “Love has no Language” and “The Quest of Sheherzade”. Her Bollywood list also includes “Hello Darling”, “Golmaal Returns”, “Paying Guest”, “Chai Garam”, Sunil Darshan’s untitled project, two projects with Ashtavinayak productions and a Punjabi film.
