Himesh prefers working with new girls
Composer-singer Himesh Reshammiya is teaming up with model Niharika Singh in his third film and says he prefers to work with new faces.
They will be seen together in John Mathew Mathan's A Love Iiisshtory (Reshammiya insists the title be spelt with triple 'i' and double 's').
"My chemistry with new faces on screen has always worked, whether it's in my music videos or my films. So I've taken a policy decision that all the films I'm doing will have new faces opposite me," Reshammiya told IANS.
He teamed up with Hansika Motwani in his debut film Aap Ka Surroor and then with Indra Kumar's daughter Shweta Kumar for Karzzz, which he is co-producing with Satish Kaushik.
And now for his third film, to go on the floors later this year, Reshammiya will launch Niharika, who was Ponds Femina Miss India Earth in 2005. She comes from a very non-filmy background in Haridwar.
She has modelled extensively and is quite a known face in the modelling circle. Currently, she's training rigorously in acting and dancing to be worthy of Reshammiya's histrionics.
While Himesh plays a full-on tapori in Love Iiisshtory, Niharika will be cast as a la-di-dah high-society girl.
The romantic conflict arises when the tapori takes on the elitist girl.
