Akshay Kumar starrer Airlift, will have a British model and actress playing a cameo role in the movie. Yes, Airlift would see 'The Vagina Monologues' actress, Feryna Wazheir playing the character of a wealthy Musilm woman in the film.
The surprising part is that Feryna Wazheir, didn't even know that Akshay Kumar would be her co-star in Airlift. The actress, received a call from Raja Menon, and she flew down for the shoot not knowing much information about the film.
Feryna Wazheir & Akshay Kumar
'The Vagina Monologues' actress Freyna Wazheir, would be seen playing a cameo in Akshay Kumar's upcoming film, Airlift.
Feryna Wazheir, was holidaying in India and was spotted by photographer Farookh Chotia. It was Farookh who helped Feryna enter the modelling industry in the country.
Feryna Wazheir, was seen in the movie Rang Rasiya, along with Randeep Hooda in 2014. The film was critically appreciated and received 4-5 stars.
In the year 2010, Feryna Wazheir made her entry in Bollywood through the movie Sadiyaan. The film was a flop.
