Can 2009 create positive image for Isha Koppikaar?

Can 2009 create positive image for Isha Koppikaar?

Isha Koppikaar was considered to be one of the most unfortunate actresses whose acting and dancing skills were acknowledged by the critics but due to success in negative role got nicknamed as “khalas girl”. Last year her film Ek Vivah Aisi Bhi was appreciated by the viewers.

Isha Koppikaar showed his bold nature in most of the films in her earlier part of the career. She played the role of a ghost in Sohail Khan’s Krishna Cottage. The film had a romantic story and Isha Kopikaar’s onscreen chemistry with Sohail Khan always haunted the viewers. But her fantasy dance performance in Ram Gopal Verma’ film Company with the song “khallas” made her villain. Viewers started identifying her as khallas girl. The beautiful actress who acted in lead roles in South Indian films like Chandralekha opposite Nagajuna, got villainish roles in bollywood films one after the other.

She even got a supporting cast in Farhan Akhtar’s super hit film Don. She also loved Shahrukh Khan but was superseded by Priyanka Chopra in her affection towards Shahrukh Khan. She danced even better than Priyanka in the song “sham hai, jam hai, aur hai nasha”, but never got the recognition. Isha acted in the role of the sister of Urmila Matondkar in the film Pinjar. She played a significant role opposite Altaf Shivdasani in Ram Gopal Verma’s film Darna Mana Hai.

She even played a bold role in the film Intequm opposite Manoj Vajpai, in the same style as Sharon Stone played in the film Basic Instinct. She started getting positive roles from mid-2006. Her performance opposite Tushar Kapoor in the film Kya Kool Hai Hum had both comedy and romantic andaz. She got a romantic role opposite Sohail Khan in the big budget film Salaam-e-Ishq.

She was brilliant opposite Arshad Warsi in Salman Khan’s comedy film Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya. Her lips in the song “saajan” was fabulous. She was sublime in 2008 in the film Hello opposite Sohail Khan in the role of a girl of a Call Centre. But she revived her image to a big extent in the film Ek Shaadi Aisi Bhi. She acted in a docile role opposite Sonu Sood and showed the viewers that if she was given positive roles she could be as romantic as Katrina Kaif.
