Momal Sheikh is all set to make her Bollywood debut with a supporting role in Happy Bhaag Jayegi.
“I had no issues about playing the second lead,” she tells Bollywood Life. “Didn’t Diana Penty make an entry into films as the second lead in Cocktail before she bagged Happy Bhaag Jayegi? As far as I am concerned, I just had to prove myself. And, now since the trailer is out, I am on-top-of-the-world and it’s finally hitting me that I am making my Bollywood debut!”
Speaking about the success of Pakistani stars in Bollywood, Momal knows that some things are just not in your control. She says, “Sometimes destiny also plays a role. Fawad has connected because he is good looking, is a good actor and people like his personality. As far as Mawra is concerned, I believe her film was not successful. People liked her work. Even I have seen the film and I loved her performance. She is a brilliant actor. Acting mein kahi kami nahi dekhi.She has been offered good projects; you guys are going to see more of her in Bollywood.”
Mahira Khan is also making her debut soon and it turns out the two actors were swapping notes on India while on separate but simultaneous shooting spells there.
“Mahira Khan (who is making her debut with Raees) is a good friend of mine. In fact, a short while ago, both our shooting spells were at the same time in India. We used to share our experiences together; it was good to have someone from back home here.”
Not only that, Momal made sure to mention her favourite Bollywood boys, while she adores Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. its Ranveer Singh she’d love to work with.
“He is a brilliant actor, has a great personality and is such a lovely person. Whenever I have seen him in TV or films, I get positive vibes. He is a fun-loving person. Kaam karke bhi mazaa ayega.”
Momal makes her debut with Happy Bhag Jayegi that comes out in August this year
