Bollywood siren Daisy Shah may have had little luck in Bollywood with ‘Jai Ho’ and ‘Hate Story 3’ but she is keen on her next project in theatre.

Talking about being branded as “Salman Khan’s heroine”, Shah told Deccan Chronicle, ���I take that as a compliment because it�۪s not easy to be a Salman Khan heroine and I take it in a positive way. It doesn�۪t always mean that I want to do a film with a big banner. I want to work on better scripts than worry about working only with brands. I want to balance commercial and off-beat roles.”

Shah also opened up about working with other stars in terms of dancing, she said, ���I have worked most with Akshay Kumar and I have a good rapport with him. People know him to be a big prankster and I�۪ve shared some fun moments with him behind the camera. I�۪d really want to share screen space with Akshay.�۝ Ask her if she�۪d like to choreograph a big star again and a solemn Daisy says no. ���I have made a lot of people dance. No way I�۪m getting back to choreography.�۝

Life, she says, has been generous to her with Jai Ho and more recently with Hate Story 3, in which she was seen in a sultry new avatar. She bagged the film after Salman recommended her name to the makers. ���Yes, Salman saw the potential that I could do it. I took it because the role was very complex and it wasn�۪t easy to play.�۝
