After her ‘Bigg Boss’ stint, model Natasa Stankovic, who started her Bollywood career with an item number (‘Satyagraha’) and a cameo (‘Action Jackson’), has finally bagged a film wherein she will be seen playing the lead. Saurabh Varma, the director who has a three film deal with Krian Media, has already started work on his second film in the deal, while his first film ‘Solid Patels’ is all set to release.
Earlier we had not only reported about the deal but had also mentioned that the second film which will be a part of the deal, is a suspense thriller titled ‘7 Hours To Go’. The film will have Natasa Stankovic playing the love interest of Shiv Pandit. It revolves around the story of a man who comes to Mumbai looking for work and is an eyewitness to a murder. He ends up taking seven hostages and has only seven hours to figure out the mystery behind the crime.
Interestingly, Saurabh Varma’s debut directorial ‘Mickey Virus’ starred Elli Avram, who too made her Bollywood debut, after participating in ‘Bigg Boss’. Talking about it, Saurabh said, “Elli had gone to ‘Bigg Boss’ after completing the film as part of promotional campaign. However, Natasa made her presence felt with ‘Bigg Boss’ and got selected for ‘7 Hours to Go’ after an audition”.
On the other hand, from what we hear, Natasa Stankovic’s name was suggested by Salman Khan who played host in the reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ when the former participated in it as a contestant. Co-incidentally, Elli Avram, another foreign import is also considered to be Salman Khan’s protege and has been bagging films owing to Salman Khan’s friendship.
‘7 Hours To Go’ starring Kettan Singh, Sandeepa Dhar and Varun Badola is currently being shot in Mumbai and is slated to release on September 11, 2015.
