It’s finally happening, Hollywood actress Freida Pinto is doing her first Bollywood film, and can you guess who is her hero?
Freida Pinto has agreed to do a Bollywood film to be made by Navdeep Singh and Vikramaditya Motwane, and there is a strong buzz that the makers have signed the talented Kai Po Che! actor Raj Kumar Yadav opposite her for the film.
Like Freida, Raj Kumar Yadav too forayed into acting through an off-beat film. He was first noticed for his performance in his debut Love, Sex Aur Dhoka (2010), directed by Dibakar Banerjee. After that he was also seen as a lead in Ekta Kapoor’s film Ragini MMS (2011). Last year, his performance in the movie Gangs Of Wasseypur was also praised.
As a source tells a tabloid, “Now all eyes are on Freida as this film with Navdeep Singh and Vikramaditya Motwane will be her first Hindi project. Rajkumar has made a mark for himself with Kai Po Che!. In fact, the makers were waiting for its release before they could announce theirs.”
It’s even learnt that Freida has especially asked Vikramaditya Motwane to be present on the sets for the entire shoot of the film, and the reason is Navdeep Singh, who wasn’t able to complete his last film starring Abhay Deol and Genelia D'Souza. Freida also wanted a clause in the contract that if anything goes wrong then Vikramaditya will step in and finish the film.
Till now, the details of the film are kept under wraps.
