Mumbai: Rapper Hard Kaur, who broke out laughing on her debut acting offer when film director Nikhil Advani approached her for a role in `Patiala House`, says she jumbled up her dialogues and had tough time remembering them.
"When Nikhil called me and told that he is offering a role to me in his film...I was laughing like hell and asked him several times if he was sure about me acting in the film. I had to give screen test and I was nervous because I can remember lyrics but not dialogues," Kaur told reporters.
"Nikhil believed that I could do justice to the character and I am thankful to him," she said.
The singer-turned-actress will sport a de-glam look in the movie contrary to her hip-hop style.
"I play the role of Komal, who is Akshay`s cousin. She is a very simple girl wearing salwar-kameez and `lambi choti`. In the film I want to be a rapper but I am afraid of what will happen if Rishiji comes to know about it. Without his knowledge, I try to fulfill my desires," she said.
I was able to connect with my role for a couple of reasons because as a Punjabi girl, when I was small my relatives used to tell that girls of the family should not sing, dance and all.., Kaur said.
The 31-year-old, who had earlier participated in TV dance reality show `Jhalak Dikhla Jaa`, had received a couple of film offers did not intend to do stereotypical roles.
"I had few offers but I never liked it. I believe in trying different things but do a good job. I don`t look myself as a glamour queen...I am not slim and tall. I don`t think so people will see me in a typical actress kind of a role," the `Glassy` hitmaker said.
The film revolves around a large Punjabi family in England and talks about a young man`s difficulties in choosing what he wants to do in the face of his family`s opposition.
`Patiala House` starring Akshay Kumar, Anushka Sharma, Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia among others releases on February 4.
