I want to do an item number next, says Aditi Rao Hydari

New Delhi: After trying her hand at singing for her film `London, Paris, New York`, actress Aditi Rao Hydari says she is keen to do an item song in her next project.

The `Murder 3` star, who is a trained classical dancer and began her career with dance-based Tamil film `Sringaram`, feels she is fit for raunchy dance numbers.

"I would love to do an item number. The song should be raunchy and it should have some `desi` and fun beats. Since I am a trained classical dancer, I will be able to do justice to it. I have never been vocal about my singing abilities but I am always ready to present my dancing skills," Aditi told reporters.

In her last outing, Vishesh Bhatt`s `Murder 3`, she opted for the role of vivacious Rashmi because she wanted to be a part of thriller.

"I feel lucky to have been a part of the film. I love my character because it celebrates life. It is a very strong character and being a part of Bhatt`s production is a dream come true. When Vishesh offered me the role, I could not believe it," she said.

Having begun her career in Bollywood with a small role in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra`s `Delhi 6`, Aditi proved herself with films like `Yeh Saali Zindagi`, `Rockstar` and `London, Paris, New York`. She feels that she is a dark horse in the industry.

"I didn`t have any godfather in the industry and had to prove myself with each film. I didn`t get that great a launch as an actress but slowly and steadily I made my presence felt in the industry. I feel I am the dark horse in this race," she said.

The actress will be seen next in Akshay Kumar-starrer `Naam Hai Boss`, which is the remake of Malayalam hit `Pokkiri Raja`.
