Deeksha Seth, who’s done a handful of films in the Tamil and Telugu industries, is all set to make her Bollywood debut. She will be paired opposite Armaan Jain, cousin of Kareena Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor, in a film produced by Saif Ali Khan. The film will also mark Armaan’s Bollywood launch. A source says, “Saif Ali Khan’s set to launch his wife Bebo’s favourite cousin, Armaan, and his team has zeroed in on Deeksha Seth to play the female lead. The film
will be directed by Imtiaz Ali’s brother, Arif Ali, and the shooting has just commenced.”
Incidentally, Armaan’s mother Rima Jain, who has been away in America, spending time with her ailing sister Ritu Nanda (Shweta Bachchan’s mother-in-law), flew down to Mumbai last week so she could be present for her son’s big launch.
Deeksha, who debuted in Kollywood with Vikram’s Rajapattai, is also shooting for the Simbu-starrer Vettai Mannan.
