Ragini-Khanna

Ragini Khanna, who’s hosting the fifth season of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, has been signed by filmmaker Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra for his next film. A source close to the actor reveals that the yet-untitled film stars Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.

When contacted, Ragini exclaims, “Who told you about that? You should ask the production house. I am starting a project after Jhalak, but I will be able to announce it only when I get official permission to do so.”

This will be Ragini’s second film with Mehra after Teen Thay Bhai (2011).

A source close to the actor reveals that she is going to play Bachchan’s daughter in the film that is based on a father-daughter story.

Ragini admits that her current focus is on making a mark in Bollywood. “I want to evolve in the Hindi film fraternity first, and then I will concentrate on other languages,” she says.

The actor, who was a contestant on the last season of the dance reality show, finds hosting no less challenging than being a participant. She explains, “Being a contestant is a very thrilling experience. You get to experiment and explore a lot. But being an anchor is an extreme responsibility. You have to connect with everyone and ensure a balance throughout the show. That’s something very difficult thing to achieve.”
