| Sanaa Khan: Taking the plunge. Picture by Rashbehari Das
We know her as the Macho girl who shot to fame washing Amul undies to near orgasmic effect. If nothing else, 20-year-old Sanaa Khan is eager to experiment.
The banned advert, showing Sanaa scrubbing a mans innerwear, a surrogate for male sexuality, has now been replaced by her watching with humorous delight an orangutan slipping on Macho undies. The effect it has on his female counterparts (one of them is even seen wearing lipstick) is something else!
The concept was bold, admits Sanaa, who shot for the new advert in Malaysia. The last frame shows sexy Sanaa sitting with the hairy hand of an orangutan over her left shoulder.
At first I was very scared. Marina, the orangutan, was used to dark colours and I was wearing a yellow sari.... But you know what, working with animals is better than working with humans, she laughs, after unveiling the new innerwear ad at The Park on Tuesday afternoon.
Sanaa also grabbed the spotlight with the item number Billo rani for Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal. I loved Billo rani… John and Bipasha were great to work with, they are not the kind of stars to throw tantrums about working with someone new. And Arshad Warsi was great fun…. The best part was working with Sarojji (Khan) but I will only consider my next item number with someone who is of the level of John Abraham, says the ambitious starlet who has some projects down south.
How did her friends react to the first Macho ad? All my boyfriends loved it! They said its the best innerwear ad they had ever seen. My five-year-old sister copies me and takes out a chaddi and pretends to wash it. Even my baby neighbour, who walks around in his chaddis, takes off the one hes wearing. Its hilarious.
The twaing twaing girl — that was the catchword of the corny ad — defends her Big build-up in the ad: As an actor its difficult to do different concepts. Youre like a prop with a pretty face in most ads, but Im glad expression was such a big part of the last Amul advert.
Our Macho fear: if the moral police dont get Sanaa this time, the monkey brigade just might.
