Nakuul Mehta, who was last seen in Haal E Dil, is now all set to hit big times, as he has signed a Spanish film opposite none other than, hold your breath - Monica Cruz, the gorgeous sister of Hollywood actress Penelope Cruz!
A visibly excited Nakuul said, "The film is called Flamenco In Bollywood, and is a Spanish romantic comedy. The best part was that I just wasn't supposed to be a part of the film! What I really want to thank God for is that despite the fact that I don't have an agent in Hollywood, I still managed to get a role in a film and that too the lead one!"
When we probed more, he revealed, "What actually happened was that, the film's director Onil Ganguly Avemore had already auditioned many young Bollywood actors and was on his way back home. And, that's when he saw my film Haal E Dil on the flight (as a part of the in-flight entertainment). He, then, immediately called his casting director for my contact, and the next thing that I knew was that I was doing the film! Till now, I just can't believe my luck."
When asked about the film, as expected, Nakuul was not ready to divulge many details of the film. All that he said was that, "While Monica plays a flamenco dancer; I play the role of a Bollywood actor, with whom she falls in love. The fact also remains that she's totally unaware of the fact that I'm a star. The film, then, deals with me following her back to Spain."
Nakuul added that, "Even though it's a Spanish film, my character speaks English. Still, I am learning Spanish, even though my role doesn't need that. We will start shooting the film in October in Spain and then, in Mumbai."
Before signing off, Nakuul adds, "I am as excited for this film as much as for my upcoming release titled Avant Garde Pythagoras Sharma. This film will be showcased at European and American film festivals."
Way to go, Nakuul!
