Now, ex-Miss India Nikita Anand (of Dil Dosti Etc fame), will essay a similar character in her forthcoming Bollywood film Monopoly - The Game Of Money directed by Nileish Malhotra.
Nikita's publicist Dale Bhagwagar recently admitted her character is 'on similar lines, and just like the Bond film, has a grey shade too.' Asked whether it has been directly inspired by Eva Green's character of Casino Royale he said, 'It seems to be! But then Nikita is hot, sexy, intelligent and intellectual in real life too. So it's difficult to say if its art imitating real life or whether Nikita is playing herself.'
Monopoly - The Game Of Money has been shot in Kuala Lumpur and Langkawi Island in Malaysia, and stars Vinod Khanna's nephew Karan Khanna opposite Nikita.
