Isha Koppikar, who has recently become a mother and has her hands full with her 4-month-old daughter, also finds time for her career. Isha plays the lead in the Kannada film Looti directed by Girish Hamplapur. Despite her new commitments towards her baby, Isha is equally dedicated towards delivering a strong performance in this fast-paced action thriller. Imran Sardariya who is currently choreographing a song for the actress says, “I became a big fan after I watched her dance to Khallas  choreographed by Ganesh Hegde for the film Company. Back then I had hoped that I would get a chance to work with Isha and that dream has been fulfilled now after 15 years. It is a fun-filled high voltage song that also sees Dhruv and Kaddipudi Chandru. Even though she has just become a mother, I see the same Khallas style in her even today and it is giving me great excitement to choreograph this song for her. I am completely bowled over by watching her strength on the sets.”

The eight to nine per cent of actresses who get the opportunity, also end up doing a standard song against a village backdrop or with a group of friends. This song picturised with Isha is different in the sense that it solely focussed on her and is a pure dance number. I don’t think the marital status of the actors matters when I choreograph them, what does matter is their energy levels and also their dedication and I see that in Isha,” he says.

Imran has choreographed the song, which he believes is techno-stylish in form. “The backdrop of this particular song has LED walls, a technology that is usually used for 3D stage shows that include fire, water, smoke and gas effects. That same thing is used for this song sequence, thus giving it a different look,” he says.

The film that went on floors in September 2013 will be complete after this song shoot along with a few of her action  sequences, which will also be completed during this schedule.
