Out of the five new girls who will be making their debut in Madhur Bhandarkar’s upcoming project ‘Calendar Girls’, actress Avani Modi is the one who has been lucky as far as wearing different costumes for their characters are concerned. Avani, who will be seen essaying the character of a Pakistani girl coming to Mumbai with aspirations of wanting to become a supermodel, got to wear everything from burqa to bikini for her role.
Avani’s character is based on Pakistan’s controversial actress Veena Malik. Just like Veena’s bold pictures and statements managed to rub her orthodox countrymen the wrong way, Avani’s character of Nazneen Khalid in ‘Calendar Girls’ faces the similar situations. As for donning a bikini in the movie, Avani justifies the same by mentioning that, as she essays the character of a model featuring on a corporate calendar, wearing bold outfits became must. The actress also learnt to wear a burqa and tie a hijab as per the needs of her character.
‘Calendar Girls’ which releases on 25th September also features debutante actresses like Satarupa Pyne, Kyra Dutt, Akanksha Puri and Ruhi Singh along with Avani Modi.
