Regina Cassandra makes Bollywood debut – The actress will feature in Sonam Kapoor-starrer Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar.
Actress Regina Cassandra’s career has always been awe- inspiring, although her performances in Telugu and Tamil have been as different as chalk and cheese. According to reports, the diva is now all geared up to make her big Bollywood debut with Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar, Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s sister.
Director Shelly was reportedly looking for a South actress with a western appeal who could perform. After a couple of auditions, the filmmakers eventually zeroed in on Regina, who will be part of an ensemble cast including Sonam Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Anil Kapoor and Juhi Chawla.
A source says, “Though Regina is a familiar face in the South, she had no qualms in giving an audition, much like a professional.”
Interestingly, Shelly was caught unawares about Regina’s filmography. “After Regina came on board, Shelly saw the actress’ films (including her latest release Awe) and felt her choice was perfect,” adds the source. The film is co-produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
