Not all newcomers in Bollywood have the privilege of being discussed at length even before their actual debut. Unless of course, he or she happens to be a star kid.
However, calendar girl Angela Johnson, who was linked up with Ranbir Kapoor last year, has already generated much curiosity around her.
Now buzz is that Salman Khan who is said to be launching the leggy lass in his home-production next year, is apparently miffed that South star Mahesh Babu has managed to score ahead of him -- by doing a cola commercial together.
Even before pre-production work on her big screen debut has started, this part-Indian, part-Icelander model has featured in the ad, pulling off some really good stunts along with Mahesh and model Sahil Shroff.
And Salman naturally is not too impressed. As our industry source explains, "A launch with Salman Khan is a big thing for any newcomer. So that would naturally be incorporated in the marketing and promotion of the film.
That's why doing an ad with Mahesh Babu is not the same as doing a film with Sallu, never mind if it's a pan-India commercial."
Needless to say, Salman's apprehensions aren't misplaced. It seems that he doesn't want Angela to be in the news for anything that could come in the way of her debut. Recently, it was reported that the actor had told her off when he had heard about her bonding with Tiger Shroff.
