Punjabi film actress Ihana Dhillon, who was last seen in Thug Life starring Harish Verma, has now geared up for her Bollywood debut and that too in a film that will raise eyebrows, once the news spreads.
Ihana has been signed for the fourth sequel of the erotic thriller Hate Story which has now been titled 'Hate Story 4'. The film, which also features Urvashi Rautela, rolls in September. It will be shot in London.
"I'm part of 'Hate Story 4'. I had received a call from the production house first. I was kind of sceptical so, I said 'no' as I didn't want to start my Bollywood career with a bold role, but when I had a second meeting with the team, I sat through the entire film narration," Ihana said in a statement.
"After listening to the story and knowing more about my role in the film, I immediately said 'yes'."
The film's shooting is expected to begin from September.
Talking about her role, she said: "My role is performance-oriented where acting is given more preference than just looks. Also, I couldn't ask for more as 'Hate Story' (erotic thriller) itself is a very hit franchise and it's a T-Series production with Vishal Pandya as the director. So I'm really looking forward to this film."
The previous instalment Hate Story 3 starred Karan Singh Grover, Sharman Joshi, Zareen Khan and Daisy Shah and the one that mattered to Punjabis was Hate Story 2 because it was Surveen Chawla's debut film in Bollywood but we've heard that after her role in it, not many makers were keen to cast her in Punjabi films.
