Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s new film seems to be heavy on South Indian actresses as it is reported that Sana Khan will be starring along with Daisy Shah in ‘Mental’.
Sana Khan shot to fame in the sixth season of Indian reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ hosted by Salman.
The actress was known to have developed a rapport with Salman, who grew quite fond of her and is also supposed to have recommended her for the film.
The news was confirmed by Sana Khan’s manager and reported by an Indian daily.
Sana Khan worked in Telugu films like Kalyanram’s Kathi and Nookayya, was recently spotted on the sets of Salman Khan-starrer Mental. “I knew Salman would honour his word to launch me in Bollywood, I was trying not to be too excited before things started shaping up,” she confesses.
The other actress Daisy Shah was an assistant to choreographer Ganesh Acharya in films like ‘Zameen’ (2003) and ‘Khakee’ (2004).
Salman also has a subtle connection with her: She was the female lead opposite south actor Jaggesh in the original Kannada version of his 2011 hit ‘Bodyguard’.
The film turned out to be an equally big hit when it was remade in Hindi with Salman and Kareena in the same year.
Daisy was part of the 12-day shooting schedule in Dubai Wonderland theme and Water Park.
There has been much speculation about who the actresses for Salman’s ‘Mental’ will be. In fact, Bigg Boss contestant Karishma Kotak and Priyanka Chopra were also supposed to be among those in the reckoning.
