Even though they are yet to hit Bollywood’s silver screen, actors Angela Jonsson and Amy Jackson have already created some buzz in tinsel-town. And the latest news is that they both have been short listed for a nautanki-style item number in the Irrfan Khan-starrer, Paan Singh Tomar.
“Angela and Amy are the frontrunners. They will be approached separately by UTV (producers) and depending on the negotiations, one of them will be finalised. Who fits the bill in terms of the song as well as the pricing, remains to be seen,” says an insider from the production house.
For the uninitiated, Angela — also known as Ranbir Kapoor’s ex-flame — has inked an exclusive deal with Salman Khan’s home production, besides another contract with producer Sajid Nadiadwala.
The Kingfisher Calendar model is expected to star opposite Salman in Sher Khan and Kick. British model Amy, on her part, is believed to be in a relationship with her Ekk Deewana Tha co-star Prateik.Apparently, the makers of the Tigmanshu Dhulia directorial are looking for a specific dance number because the film is relatively serious in nature. “Regardless of who does the song (Angela or Amy) Irrfan being part of it is unlikely. But things will be finalised in about a week’s time,” adds the insider.
When contacted, Shikha Kapur, senior vice president, UTV Motion Pictures doesn’t deny the news. She says, “Right now, we are planning what to do. A music video is an option, but it’s too early to reveal anything on the subject.”
Produced by UTV Motion Pictures, Paan Singh Tomar is based on the true story of a runner, who turns into a rebel. To release on March 2, besides Irrfan as Paan Singh Tomar, the film also stars Mahie Gill and Vipin Sharma of Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster (2011) fame.
