Ex Miss India Celina Jaitley has been trying hard for long to make it to the A-list in B-Town. But to avail. All she's managed is multistarrer films and unsubstantial roles. But now we hear she's trying to emulate Rani Mukherjee. Considering the fact that Rani too is a passe too now, it seems to be a rather odd decision though. She's supposedly playing a role, which is a mix of glamour and realism, very similar to Rani's character in Laaga Chunari Mein Daag. She will go fully bold and play a stripper in a flick titled Showman.
She says, "I play a half-English and half-Indian girl, who comes from very poor family in London. She grows up to be a stripper in a nightclub and a con-artist." We wonder how that's similar to Rani's character in Laaga Chunari Mein Daag. Well, the fate of the film and the movie seems to be already out in the open.
