#UrvashiRautela spent a bomb for the black Belluccio gown she sported at the Filmfare awards night

The actress also boarded a specially chartered flight from Surat to Mumbai to make it in the nick of time for the awards ceremony

The bold and black Belluccio gown that Urvashi Rautela wore at the recent Filmfare awards night, which made her the cynosure of all eyes, is said to have cost her a steep $25,000. The glamorous event witnessed celebrities at their fashionable best but it was Urvashi who seemed to make a statement with the way she carried herself in the outfit. More interestingly, the Hate Story 4 actress kept her commitment for the awards night by boarding a chartered plane from Surat where she was present for a prestigious launch. Apparently the actress, who was recently roped in as the celebrity brand ambassador of the Grandeza club, was in a dilemma since both the events were scheduled on the same day. According to a source from Urvashi’s team, the actress wanted to make sure that she did not do injustice to either of the two events, “Urvashi is the second celebrity after Hrithik Roshan to be roped by Grandeza and her fans in Surat had assembled in full strength to watch her at the event. She did not want to disappoint them by leaving midway and held on till the event was wrapped up. On the other hand, she was well aware about her commitment for the Filmfare awards night knowing her long-term association with the Times group as part of Miss Universe India pageant. That’s when she took a chartered flight to Mumbai,” the source revealed.

Earlier in May 2017, Urvashi was heavily trolled on the social media for squandering money and booking a VVIP table worth Rs 5 lakhs for being part of a privileged audience at the Justin Bieber concert held in Mumbai. However the actress had strongly defended her decision, “A number of people condemned me for spending that kind of money for the Justin Bieber concert. They felt it would have been a better idea to donate it to the needy but I am surprised why the two things are being mixed up. Going to a concert of a celebrated performer, whom you adore and whose work inspires you and donating to the needy, are two entirely different things. I valued that concert beyond anything else and it was important for me. As for working for the needy, I also have a foundation where I do my bit for charity. That is something which I do without telling people,” she had said.

Reports suggest that the huge crowds who had gathered at Ekante Island, Eco Park to witness the high voltage spectacle, went berserk as the actress gyrated to some of the most popular numbers in recent times, including her own Haseenon Ka Deewana number in Kaabil.

Urvashi recalled her experience and the great connect she shared with the audiences, “I have performed to some of the most vibrant crowds in the past but this was something different. There was a different energy and vibe and the feeling was amazing. I wanted the Kolkata audiences to usher the New Year in a unique way and they were thrilled,” she said. She also remembered her recent live-wire act in UAE at the Sharjah International Cricket Stadium, when she performed for her Dubai fans, “That was another novel experience. I wanted to do something different and I performed an Arabic dance form especially for my Dubai audiences. It was an exhilarating experience,” she revealed.

The actress said that performing live in front of thousands of fans gave her a new high, “I am extremely passionate about dancing but when I take to the dance floor at a concert, there is so much more excitement since the audiences are right there in front of you giving you a direct feedback,” she said, adding that she loved to choreograph her own act with creative dance moves.

Talking about her life-long connect to dance, Urvashi recalled an incident in her childhood days when she choreographed a number for a school function, “I was just 12 years old then. I used to choreograph dance numbers for school events and conduct dance classes for free for the kids living in my area. One of the numbers I taught to a student was the ‘Dil Mein Mere Dard E Disco’, which shaped up so well that the six year old won the first prize in the school competition. It prodded me to pursue dance further. I am very creative about my dance moves and it comes to me very instinctively. I think it’s gifted,” she said.

“I remember I had choreographed the Shah Rukh Khan number, ‘Dil Mein Mere Dard E Disco’ at the age of 12 for a school concert for which my six year old dance student won the first prize” – Urvashi Rautela
