Jiah Khan signs 3-film deal
"Nishabd" actress Jiah Khan, who was last seen in 2010 film "Housefull", has signed a three-film deal with a big production house.
Jiah, who came to a city show flaunting the couture of celebrated designer Jaya Mishra for upcoming Bridal Asia show, Delhi, told PTI, "I will again appear in Bollywood as part of a three-film deal but can't disclose more at this stage."
The 24-year-old actress, who had walked the ramp for Mishra at a Hyderabad fashion show a month back, said she found wearing ethnic costumes fascinating.
"I am very much into ethnic culture. In fact my all time dream remains to turn up in a real period film and in a lead character donning those costumes and accessories," Jiah said.
When asked which director she would want to work with, she said, "I simply love Anurag Kashyap's filmmaking. But Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Mani Ratnam are my two other favourite filmmakers who have weaved magic with their work."
Asked what went in her mind when she first learnt about essaying a role opposite Amitabh Bachchan in the 2007 Ram Gopal Verma flick "Nishabd", Jiah said, "I did not have any butterflies in the stomach. I knew I have to give my best shot opposite Mr Bachchan and he did not behave as a superstar."
Bridal Asia is to be held from October 21-23 in Delhi and will highlight Mishra's designer robes studded with weaves, jewels and Swarovski embellishments.
"I chose Jiah as a representative of the new generation who can combine the east and west with subtle sensitivity symbolising poise, elegance and passion," Mishra said. PTI
