Mumbai, Jan 17 (IANS) To say Anjana Sukhani is elated about sharing screen space with the who's who of Bollywood in Nikhil Advani's "Salaam-e-Ishq" is an understatement.

"It's truly a blessing to be a part of an ensemble cast like 'Salaam-e-Ishq'. It's my first big film with a big director and some of the biggest actors of Bollywood. I was treated like a princess and didn't feel intimidated at all. I was treated in the same manner as Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan and others on sets," said Anjana.

Anjana, who has more than 40 commercials to her credit including the Coke ad with Aamir Khan, made her debut in the box office dud "Humdum". "Sun Zarra" and "Jaana-Lets Fall In Love" followed and they too sank without a trace. So, she now has her hopes pinned on Advani's biggie "Salaam-E-Ishq", reports Bollywood Trade.

She is all charged to set the screen ablaze with her sensual "Babujee dheere chalna" track in "Salaam-E-Ishq", in which she tries to seduce Anil Kapoor.

"The song is not completely remixed and has a lounge feel to it. Anil comes to the studio and this is the first time he sees me. He is completely mesmerised and here onwards subsequent meetings take place between us," said Anjana.

Anjana plays the other woman in Anil's life.

"I play a young 22-year-old independent woman. She is very confident, open minded and chilled out. She feels its okay to walk out of a strained relationship and start afresh."

Priyanka Chopra-Salman Khan, John Abraham-Vidya Balan, Akshaye Khanna-Ayesha Takia, Sohail Khan-Ish Koppikar and Govinda-Shannon Esrechowitz will also be seen in the film.

"Salaam-e-Ishq" is slated to release Jan 25. The music is already scorching charts and with six lovable couples pairing up, the film sure looks like a tribute to love.
