Maryam affirms, "Yes I have an important role in the film. The mujra song which I am performing adds weight to my character. I am playing a girl called Farah from Afghanistan. Beyond that I can't reveal you much about the film at this juncture."

Maryam, who shares the dancing platform with Kareena Kapoor, is all praise for the actress. "Besides being a talented actress, Kareena is also a wonderful person and very supportive. She made me feel comfortable. I enjoyed dancing along with her. I and Kareena connected well," she says.

Maryam, who is born in Iran and brought up in Sweden, has left one and all astonished doing Bollywood style of dancing in the mujra song. However, not many know the hottie has been teaching Bollywood dancing for years in Sweden. "I have been teaching Bollywood dancing for years in Sweden. I am also acquainted with Indian classical dance. In fact I have been running my own dance school in Sweden. So in that way I am quite familiar with Bollywood style of dancing," reveals Maryam.

And I am happy that my dream is finally turning into a reality," Maryam reveals.
