Mawra Hocane, who became an overnight sensation in India when Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor sent her a video message via Instagram, is all set to make her big Bollywood debut with Vinay Sapru and Radhika Rao’s movie tentatively titled ‘Sanam Teri Kasam.’
The Pakistani beauty, who is 22, is paired opposite south actor Harshvardhan Rane in the movie. The cast and crew were in Cape Town last week shooting for the movie. Sources confirm that more than 50 per cent of the shoot has been completed.
While it is not quite clear whether ‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ is a remake of the 1982 hit starring Kamal Haasan and Reena Roy, Mawra in her limited media interactions has termed her debut movie as ‘a beautiful love story comparing it with Aashiqui 2.’
Mawra, who is immensely popular in Pakistan, recently found herself at the receiving end of an unwanted controversy when her tweets protesting the banning of Saif Ali Khan’s ‘Phantom’ in Pakistan drew the ire of senior Pakistani actor, Shaan. Her open letter defending her decision however garnered her a lot of applause from all quarters.
Meanwhile, Vinay Sapru appeared reluctant when Indian Express team rang him for a confirmation. When asked about the status of the shoot, Vinay said: “It’s going fine. But everything is in a state of flux. It’s too early to talk about Sanam Teri Kasam.”
Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru had earlier helmed Salman Khan’s Lucky: No time for love.
