In the past, Sylvester Stallone and Denise Richards were seen in Akshay Kumar’s Kambakkht Ishq (2008), while Samantha Fox scorched the big screen in Govinda’s Rock Dancer (1995). Now, if things work out, Hollywood hottie Megan Fox might be seen in a Hindi film. Director Rajeev Jhaveri claims he has approached Megan for his directorial debut, Fever, which will be co-produced by Ravi Aggarwal and Mahesh Balakundari.
A source says, “As per the script’s requirement, Rajeev wanted an international face. He contacted Megan’s agent. Given the intense storyline and Megan’s character in the project, the movie script was apparently received well by the Hollywood diva and her team.”
Rajeev says, “She has been offered an engaging and pivotal role in Fever. But I cannot divulge more at this stage. As the story is set in Switzerland, it needs international actors to add authenticity. A Hollywood actor’s affiliation with a project also garners huge interest.” Talking about her response to the offer, he adds, “It was quite encouraging. I am in constant touch with her agency, ICMPartners, and am told that it is under serious consideration.”
The source adds, “Although nothing has been confirmed, but things are going in the right direction. She is excited about the script and has expressed eagerness to associate herself with this Bollywood project. Her agent has asked the director for an official letter to proceed further.”
Fever is a suspense thriller. It will be shot in Switzerland and will also features Rajeev Khandelwal.
