Neha Sharma to star with Dharmendra
Mumbai: After a few marginal Hindi film roles, actress Neha Sharma seems to be coming into her own.
The Bhagalpur girl, who did a couple of Telugu films before making her Bollywood debut in 2010 with 'Crook: It's Good To Be Bad', is now all set to share the screen space with yesteryear's star Dharmendra.
Neha has been chosen to play the female lead in the Deol production 'Yamla Pagla Deewana 2' and is quite over the top with glee.
"Wonderful! I get to work with the legendary actor Dharmji. So I can't consider myself more lucky. I am working with such awesome actors, all of them, so I can be more blessed," says Neha, who appeared in a cameo in 'Teri Meri Kahaani' and had a full-fledged roll in 'Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum'.
The success of 'Yamla Pagla Deewana' resulted in the announcement of the sequel. But with the director of the original, Samir Karnik, opting out, Sangeeth Sivan has been roped in as director.
But before that, Neha will be seen in 'Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story' opposite Vivek Oberoi. The film has been directed by Vinnil Markan and is produced by Kumar Taurani under the Tips Music Films banner.
"Vinnil has made a fantastic film and I am so lucky to be a part of 'Jayantabhai Ki Love Story', says Neha, adding: "I feel it is going to be one of the best films of 2013. The film is also just as entertaining as you can see in the trailer."
'Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story' is about a Mumbai goon played by Vivek who falls in love with Neha. The film is slated for a February 15 release.
