She has modelled for various ad campaigns, which include Kit Kat, Taj Hotels, NIIT and Aristocrat whisky, but it was the Nescafe commercial that catapulted her to into the limelight.
Many are not aware that Maushmi is a trained classical dancer from the Nalanda Dance University and is comfortable with all styles of dancing, ranging from Western to Indian, reports Bollywood Trade.
Maushmi is all excited about her appearance in a c0nd0m ad. ‘My latest ad campaign is for Zaroor c0nd0ms, where I am wearing a sari and it’s a very clean ad. It basically gives out a social message, especially to the youth who get carried away very easily. It’s also about women empowerment and the tagline is ‘Male fantasy’, reveals Maushmi.
She was earlier seen donning a white sari with her long open tresses in Bally Sagoo’s music video ‘Noorie’. The other popular videos she has appeared in include Nitin Bali’s ‘Neele Neele ambar par’ and Arvinder Singh’s ‘Pani sharaab mein’.
Needless to say, her music albums have created quite a stir and she has already shot for another video for Priyadarshan’s forthcoming film ‘Bhagam Bhaag’. ‘I have just shot for the eight-minute promotional song of ‘Bhagam Bhaag’ called ‘Aafareen’ with Akshay Kumar and Govinda. It’s a fast racy number with an opera feel to it. It has been shot in a very stylised way and I am really excited about it’, gushes the Nescafe lass.
‘I am basically an introvert. It was so sweet of Akshay to come and introduce himself to me. Even Govinda was very cordial and down to earth. They both made me feel damn comfortable. I had a blast on the sets,’ she adds.
She has another music album lined up which is sung by Sonu Kakkad of ‘Babujee’ fame and directed by Siddarth Raj Anand, known for his ‘Salaam Namaste’. ‘It’s called ‘dil saara chumbak hai’. Ahmed Khan has choreographed it and it’s a hard-core dance number. It will release very soon,’ exclaims Maushmi.
Her debut film ‘Lips – The Kiss of Death’, opposite Anuj Saxena is said to be an emotional romantic thriller.
‘The entire film has been shot in New York. I play the main protagonist in the film and it is produced by a US-based production company owned by S. Khimani. It is a romantic thriller though I am open to all kinds of roles, in fact, I can do great comedy and can play sensitive characters onscreen because I am a very emotional and sensitive in real life. Also, I’m a complete romantic person at heart so basically I want to exhibit my versatility on screen,’ she says. (By Swati R. Chaudhary )
