Model-turned-actor Lisa Haydon’s latest outing in a Bollywood film may not have producers and directors queuing outside her door, but the leggy lass is hopeful of a bright future in Tinselville. Lisa says that she has achieved a lot more than she could have hoped for, in the few years since she shifted base from Australia to Mumbai. A brief role in Aisha, starring Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol and now Rascals, with Ajay Devgn and Sanjay Dutt, she insists it’s not a bad start.
Talking about the item number she did in the movie, Lisa says that she is a trained dancer, so any opportunity to put her skill to good use is welcome. “I also did a commercial where I had to shake a leg with (actor) Hrithik Roshan,” she reminds us. And the experience, she insists, was simply fabulous. “Hrithik understands dance a lot. So it was great to match moves with someone so passionate about dance. He doesn’t look at dance as just another aspect of his profession, he really loves it and takes the effort to be perfect. I like that, it inspired me to put my best foot forward too,” says Lisa.
