Southern star Regina Cassandra will make her Bollywood debutwith “Aankhen 2” opposite Amitabh Bachchan.
The film is a sequel to 2002 heist thriller “Aankhen”, which was directed by Vipul Amrutlal Shah. The latest film will be helmed by Anees Baazmee. The film also stars Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and Arjun Rampal, who along with Bachchan were part of the first film as well.
Asked about her Bollywood debut, Regina said: “I am really excited. It’s my first film here so there has to be a mark that needs to be created. everyone is waiting to see what you can do and what you can’t…”
The actress, who has worked in Telugu, Kannada and Tamil films, says working with celebrated names like Amitabh Bachchan doesn’t make her nervous and instead she is looking to working with the Piku star.
“I know that in this field you need to learn from your seniors and I want to see my seniors in action…So I am really excited,” she added.
The 28-year-old actress also called Amitabh an “amazing human being”.
Regina doesn’t feel it’s a re-launch for her, but calling venturing into the Hindi film industry a new step.
“I won’t use the word re-launch but it’s definitely a different step altogether and taking another step is about going out my comfort zone and doing different things,” she added.
Has she seen any difference in the Hindi and Southern film industry?
“Bollywood is whole different ball game altogether interns of everything. I think it’s larger…I started as a child artiste in south and I hadn’t have to think about what I have to wear and I grew up with.. now I am already an established name in the south… There’s something that I already need to maintain when I come here,” she said.
