Svelte and sultry Diana Penty is making her Bollywood debut with Imtiaz Ali’s soon-to-be-released ‘Cocktail’ alongside Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone. With this debut, Mumbai model Diana would join the bandwagon with likes of Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma, Mughda Godse, Katrina Kaif et al, who have already earned their share of name and fame in the industry.
For Diana Penty, romantic comedy ‘Cocktail’ is certainly going to be a dream debut. Firstly, because Imtiaz’s films have all materials to strike a special connection with audiences, and also, there were rumours that Diana has been chosen over Anushka Sharma to play the role in ‘Cocktail’.
Diana Penty was even rumoured to make her Bollywood debut in ‘Rockstar’, with Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. But the project didn’t work out for reasons best known to director Imtiaz Ali. Yet, the model-turned-actress is lucky enough to get such a big break with ‘Cocktail’, a film that revolves around the notions of love, friendship and betrayal.
Though there’s still some time for the film to hit the big screen, the trailers of the film are a hit with over 1 million views on YouTube. Even the music has become a hit; especially the song ‘Tumhi Ho bandhu’ featuring Diana Penty is making everyone groove and movie lovers are looking forward to see her on the silver screen.
I’m so glad that after a long time, we’ll get to see a fresh new face (hopefully talented too), without attempting to get noticed through some bold scene or an item number. Though with Deepika Padukone playing the lead role, Diana Penty would have to put that extra effort to get into the league of most promising Bollywood starlets and the looking at the promos, she seems to be right there.
So good luck Diana and fingers crossed!!!
