After a sabbatical of four years, Diana Penty came back on the big screen with Happy Bhag Jayegi. The Cocktail actress will now next be seen in Lucknow Central alongside Farhan Akhtar.
As per a leading daily, the model-turned-actor has signed her fourth film which is set to go on floors by the end of this month. In the flick, the stunning beauty is paired opposite John Abraham. The film is set to be directed by Abhishek Sharma and the premise of the same is based on the nuclear tests that India conducted in Pokhran in 1998.
Diana Penty says, “I read the script and liked it instantly. It’s quick paced, intelligent and what’s most exciting for me is that it’s based on a true story. To be able to tell a story of such great national importance and recreate history in a way, is what really drew me to this film. And yes, this is my first film in the action-drama genre.
The idea has always been to try something different each time, and I’m glad I’ve had the opportunities to do so.”
The script has been written by Saiwyn Quadros and Sanyuktha Chawla Shaikh (the writers behind the hit film, Neerja) and will be directed by Abhishek Sharma. The film goes on floors on May 30 this year.
