There are reports going around that beauty pageant winner Manushi Chillar would be making her debut opposite Akshay Kumar in the period-historical Prithviraj Chauhan.
Dismissing this as “desktop invention”, a source very close to the project says there is absolutely no truth to this report.
“The lady that you mention has not been considered,let alone approached for Prithviraj Chauhan.So far the project only has director Chandraprakash Diwedi and Akshay Kumar on board.The lead actress has not been discussed. But it is unlikely to be a newcomer,” says the source.
Regarding Ms Chillar’s debut sources say it is quite a way off.
The lady has met directors. But she is not inclined to plunge into Bollywood career as yet.
Traditionally beauty queens have constantly been keen to head towards Bollywood. Whether it was the more successful ones like Aishwarya Rai, Sushmita Sen , Priyanka Chopra or Lara Dutt or the ones that couldn’t make it in Bollywood like Yukta Mookhey,Pooja Gupta and Sonal Chauhan, they’ve all been there , done it .
It’s only a matter of time before Manushi Chillar makes that transition from ramp to screen. When Manushi met Farah Khan recently she set tongues wagging. Turned out to be a false alarm.
