MUMBAI -- Actress Daisy Shah says her dream role would be the one played by Bhagyashree in superstar Salman Khan's film Maine Pyaar Kiya (1989).

"I would want to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Vishal Bhardwaj. I would like to play Bhagyashree from Maine Pyaar Kiya and romance Salman. I would also like to play Sridevi from Chaalbaaz (1989)," Daisy told PTI.

She made her acting debut last year with Salman's Jai Ho (2014).

Before becoming an actress Daisy was a choreographer. The Bajrangi Bhaijaan star spotted the 31-year-old, who was one of the background dancers in his Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya (2005).

He noticed her once and asked her if she would like to get into acting.

"I left choreography three years ago. I am focusing on acting and I am enjoying every bit of it. I am getting comfortable in this space. I want to explore different kind of films," she said.

Daisy is looking forward to the release of Hate Story 3, which is an erotic thriller.

"It was not surprising for me to get this offer. I was looking forward to do something that is out of my comfort zone. I wanted to do something that is not like Jai Ho.

"I was kicked by the story. I knew it had bold scenes and that was holding me back from doing the film. I was in a dilemma whether I should do this film or not," she adds.

Initially, Daisy was uncomfortable doing intimate scenes.

"Indian films have limitations and we all knw about it. I was uncomfortable doing bold stuff on screen as I had not done it earlier," she said.

"I was frightened initially. But this (bold) scene happened in the end of the film so by that I was comfortable with my co-actors, directors and other cast and crew of the film," she added.

Besides Daisy, the film stars Zarine Khan, Sharman Joshi and Karan Singh Grover in the lead.

"I had a great time working with Sharman Joshi and Karan Singh Grover. Zarine is a sweet girl. She has done a phenomenal job," she said.

The third instalment of the Hate Story (2012) franchise is directed by Vishal Pandya and it is set to release on 4 December.
