Looks like actress Elli Avram’s Bollywood career is finally taking off now that she is said to have been offered a movie by the veteran director duo Abbas-Mustan. The model cum actress shot into fame after her stint in India’s most popular and controversial reality TV show Bigg Boss Season 7 last year where she was obviously one of the favorites of the host, Salman Khan. The cute and bubbly half Greek-half Swedish actress also made her debut in the same year with Manish Paul in Mickey Virus but did not end up getting too many Bollywood offers after that.
Now after a year of speculations about doing a film opposite Salman Khan, Elli has finally bagged her second Bollywood project and that too a big one! According to TOI, this out and out comedy flick by Abbas-Mustan will have Elli and four other heroines paired opposite ace comedian Kapil Sharma. According to a source close to the production, we hear that Elli was signed by the makers for her exotic looks rather than her acting chops. Rumors also have it that the untitled project is expected to go on floors in November later this year and likely to be shot abroad.
After her Bigg Boss spell, Elli has been making appearances in various social scenes, dance reality shows, and award functions. She was last seen shaking her leg with actor Upen Patel in the pilot episode of Bigg Boss Season 8 on Colors TV this past weekend. Dressed up as an air Hostess, the actress shared a great camaraderie with fourth time host Salman Khan which has been evident since their Big Boss days. Here’s wishing Ms. Avram all the very best for her forthcoming movie and we hope to see a lot more of her on the big screen in the upcoming year.
