Regina Cassandra is Bollywood bound

Regina Cassandra, who is popular in Kollywood thanks to Rajathanthiram and Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga, has stepped into Bollywood.

Amitabh Bachhan, Anil Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Arshad Warsi — that’s the star cast of Regina Cassandra’s maiden Bollywood venture, Aankhen 2.

“It all happened organically. The makers liked my work in a few of my films in South and approached me through one of my PR friends in Mumbai. I was asked to fly down to Mumbai, so I just hopped down recently and got selected,” she says.

“It really feels good! Making it to Hindi films, which is a global platform, is a big feat for an actress from the south. The Aankhen team got to know about me through my work, and I did not even audition. I had to do a photoshoot instead,” she adds.

“Like Aankhen, this film is about three blind men involved in a robbery. My character is sexy and seductive, and it has a mix of both good and bad shades. It is a performance-oriented role,” she adds.

There will be times when she’ll be all lovey-dovey too. So it’s going to be fun portraying a two-faced personality on screen. It’s a first for me and I’m looking forward to start shooting. The film is slated to roll in January next year, she states further.
