Vidya MalvadeModel-turned-actress gets big break opposite Shah Rukh

It appeared that model Vidya Malvade would become another forgettable face of Indian cinema. But then, a big break came her way.

Success has eluded Vidya ever since she moved beyond the ramps to acting in films. So far, she has acted in two films - 'Inteha' and 'Mashooka' - both were box-office flops. And just when it seemed that Vidya would not get her foothold in tinsel town, lady luck has smiled upon her.



Vidya has got on a platter a plum role in Yash Raj banner film titled Chak De .

The film revolves around the game of hockey and has Shah Rukh Khan playing the coach of a girls' hockey team.

Vidya plays a girl from a Sikh family. Her character in the film is very passionate about playing hockey, but her orthodox parents don't approve of this.

Vidya's character in Chak De reminds of Parminder Nagra in Gurinder Chadha's 'Bend It Like Beckham'.

It is learnt that Vidya has been undergoing training in playing hockey for her role in the film. A training camp has been organized by Yash Raj films in which more than a dozen girls - many of them newcomers - have been participating.

The movie's actors are bound by a legal contract not to speak about their roles or the movie's plot to the media.

Vidya has previously appeared with SRK in a Santro advertisement.

The shooting of Chak De is already said to have begun. The film is being directed by Shimit Amin, who previously wielded the megaphone for Ab Tak Chhappan .
