Candice Boucher, a South African Playboy hottie who features in Percept's untitled next, essays the role of a sand artist in the espionage drama.
Directed by Prashant Chaddha (Aap Ka Surror), the film stars Sachin Joshi (the Managing Director of an energy drink endorsed by Shahrukh Khan) and Arya Babbar.
The beauty had to train from a professional artiste for the role. She says, "Learning from a sand artiste from Belarus was an amazing experience. It's an intricate art more difficult than oils and watercolours on canvas as sand keeps shifting all the time. One's concentration has to be sharper and more focussed."
It may be recalled that Candice was the nude centrespread attraction of Playboy magazine for April 2010 and is also the brand ambassador for an international jeans brand. She was signed for the film during the FIFA World Cup in June (it was held in her home country) to add the project's glam quotient.
The movie is about an informant who has to go undercover to save his brother and the nation from the effects of a biological war.
