Actress-politician Smriti Irani will be making her movie debut in a Bangla film,

Amrita

, opposite actor Victor Bannerjee. Sources say that the film is yet to go on the floors but the actress has given the maker a go-ahead and even allotted dates for the film.



Smriti confirmed that she was doing the film. “I play Amrita, around whom the film is centred. It’s too early to give any details. We will announce it formally soon,” she said.



Irani says she agreed to do the film because of the script as well as an opportunity to work with Bannerjee. “Victor’s an excellent actor. My co-actress in the film is Supriya Devi, the late actor Uttam Kumar’s wife. I thought of this as a great opportunity to play the leading lady of a meaningful film,” she said.



Irani claims to work in multi-lingual genres these days. “It’s fun to dabble in three different languages. Apart from this Bangla film, I have

Maniben.com

, a Hindi TV sitcom. Thankfully, it’s doing well on the ratings chart. I’m doing

Muktidhaam

, a Gujarati play which has been running to packed houses across the country, even after completing 50-60 shows,” gushes the actress.



In 2008, Irani played a small role in

Maalik Ek

, a devotional Hindi film based on the life of Sai Baba. Besides a pivotal role, she was also playing the narrator in the film. The film is yet to release.
