Mumbai: Actress Shruti Haasan, who plays a prostitute in her upcoming release ‘D-Day’, shot some bold scenes with Arjun Rampal for the film. She asserts that sensuality is a key element of her character, and says it hasn`t been used just for titillation.

Directed by NIkhil Advani, "D-Day" is an espionage thriller slated to release July 19.

"I`m playing a prostitute in the film and sensuality is a key element. We`ve not done it for titillation or unnecessary scandalising. The character is like that," the 27-year-old actress said here in an interview.

"If you do it in a wrong way, then the audience and actors both don`t like it as the conviction is lost. It`s very much integral to the character (in the film). As an actor, I feel we get to express all the emotions, and sensuality is a part of human emotion so its very important," she added.

The film also features Irrfan, Rishi Kapoor and Huma Qureshi in key roles.
