Actress Adah Sharma, who is currently busy promoting her upcoming movie "Garam", says she is playing a Muslim girl named Sameera in the film and will been seen wearing burkha throughout the film.

In an interview, the "Heart Attack" girl shared her excitement over her role in "Garam", which is set to release in theatres on Feb. 12. "I play a Muslim girl, Sameera, in this film. For most of the film (except songs) I wear a burkha, only my eyes betray my emotions. In fact I have only five dialogues in the entire film as I express everything through my eyes," Deccan Chronicle quoted Adah Sharma as saying.

"Garam" is a romantic action entertainer and "Gunde Jhallumandi"-fame Madan has written the screenplay and directed the film. Madan was impressed by Adah Sharma's expressions in "Heart Attack". Hence, he roped in Adah as the female lead alongside actor Aadi.

"I think he liked my expressions in that film ('Heart Attack') and chose me for this role. He was very clear about what he wanted. In this film, I am not a typical Telugu heroine as he wanted me to be subtle," the actress told the English daily.

When quizzed about working with actor Aadi, Adah Sharma has all praises for him and described him as a very sincere and hardworking actor. "I had thought I was mad about practising dances and scenes 100 times, but after I saw Aadi I changed my mind. He practises 200 times," the actress said.

"Garam" was initially produced by Rajkumar, who backed out of the project following financial issues. Aadi's parents actor Saikumar and Sureka are making their debut as producers with this movie, produced under the banner of RK Studios. The couple have pinned a lot of hopes on their maiden production.
