There was a time when Isha Koppikar shot to super fame and took the nation by a storm with a song. Popularly called the Khallas Girl, she got noticed for her item song in Ram Gopal Verma's Company. Ask her if she anticipated such a response, she nods negative. "No, I never expected it. I had done a few films down South and I played the girl next door. So I never thought I could look this hot. When RGV asked me to do the song, he asked me to keep quiet. Once it was done, when I saw it, I was shocked and was blown."

Although Khallas became a huge craze, it did stereotype Isha as the next item girl, she explains. "I was offered several dance numbers which I had to say no to. Khallas kind of typecasted me where people wanted to take me only for songs. I did Ishq Samundar also at the same time. It was actually supposed to be a role in the film but it was not. I don't really know what happened."

Discussing further, she reveals, "I was told that it's a role of Sanjay Dutt's girlfriend. Then theytold me they felt the length of the film (Kaante) was too long and they had to shorten so they had to do away with my role. We first shot the song. I was too naive and took people by face value. I don't know if we can call it cheating but maybe, they could have done away with my part in the film. I don't really know."
