"Dancing is my passion and salsa is a new thing for me. I am quite nervous and excited about this project. Salsa is like good music, it elevates the spirit and it's an exhilarating freedom," Veena said in a statement.
The dance has been choreographed by Longinus Fernandes, known for choreographing "Jai ho" for Oscar winning movie "Slumdog Millionaire" and "Pappu can't dance saala" for "Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Naa", and he is impressed with the way the actress has performed.
"Veena is crazy about dancing. She is a good dancer and has the skill to adapt a dance move and present it beautifully. She is a dancing star," he said.
Meanwhile, the actress has a host of films in her kitty.
She has finished shooting for "Mumbai 125 km", "Daal Mein Kuch Kaala Hai" and "Zindagi 50-50".
Currently she is filming "Rajani Ki Toh Lag Gayi" and soon she will start working on "Supermodel" with Ashmit Patel.
She has also been signed on for the Kannada version of "The Dirty Picture".
