“I have always wanted to be a star. I have not done any course in acting or dancing, but my sixth sense told me that one day I would be a star. Besides, as I was in the modelling industry, there was no better option than Bollywood. The Bhatts saw me on the ramp and offered me a film,”
She may be new to Bollywood, but Shaurya Chauhan is a well-known model. She is also known as Neelam Chauhan.

Audiences will get to see her again in the film Horn Ok Please. Shaurya talks about her future projects and more.
Neelam Chauhan alias Shaurya Chauhan has worked with Priyadarshan, Vikram Bhatt and even danced in a number with Salman Khan.
Mumbai Salsa may not have done well, but that did not affect her. “I think a film needs good publicity which Mumbai Salsa did not get.” About her upcoming films she says, “My upcoming film is Horn Ok Please, and I am also working on other projects which include Deepak Tijori’s new movie Fox and Road Trip of Rohit Roy.” Working with the Bhatts requires a lot of skin show. “It depends upon the script and the story line. I don’t have any problem in showing my skin,” she opines.
And about item numbers she adds, “I love to do item numbers. In my upcoming film I am doing an item number with Mika. If required, I will do intimate scene also.” Question her about her relationship with business baron Vijay Mallaya and she says, “It’s an honour for me to be featured in his company’s calendar. When I got call from his company, I was on seventh heaven. Every model dreams of being featured in his company’s calendar. And I have worked hard to be at this level.”
