If you have seen Lions Of Punjab Presents, it is hard to miss the cute little Gujarati girl with a golden voice - Preeti Patel. The girl who enacted this role? Ishitta Sharrma.
Playing a '17 going on 18' meek girl who gives a shock of her life to heavy weight Shabana Azmi during the singing competition, Ishitta was a picture of confidence in her debut film directed by Manish Acharya.
As luck would have it, her other film Dil Dosti Etc. releases as well in a matter of just one week as this Manish Tiwary comes this Friday. In this Prakash Jha production, she plays a school girl named Kintu who realizes that a college guy Apurv (played by Imaad Shah) is flirting with her. However, instead of listening to her heart and simply giving in to him, she makes sure that she takes her own time before making a decision.
With two back to back releases for this young girl, it is one debut month that Ishitta would always remember.
