The Kingfisher calendar model will not only now star in Sher Khan, she will also star in the sequel of Partner and the remake of Amar Akbar Anthony, that will feature all the three Khan brothers Salman, Arbaaz and Sohail, both slated for 2013.
Says our source, "Angela's career in Bollywood wasn't taking off. But Salman and Sohail saw her potential and offered her an exclusive contract before she made the wrong career moves. Now she will be eligible for all of Salman's home productions, though they don't necessarily have to sign her for every film they make."
Confirming this, Sohail says, "Yes she has signed an exclusive contract with us. But we haven't decided which film or films she will be doing. We think she has great potential. We will launch her."
Earlier there was buzz that adult-content actress Sunny Leone would be starring in Sher Khan. However, the Khan brothers are said to have dropped Sunny after they came to know that the Bhatts were looking to sign her.
Our source points out, "Besides, Sher Khan is designed for Salman's young fans. An adult actress didn't quite fit the bill."
Turning the wheel of fortune
Having almost given up hope on a big banner Bollywood debut, buzz was that Angela had given the nod to a multi-starrer Kya Supercool Hain Hum.
