Mathira Mohammed – the Paris Hilton of Pakistan is all set to become the latest Bollywood import from across the border. The chat show host, currently in Mumbai, is confident of bagging a role in an upcoming romantic comedy starring Neil Nitin Mukesh and helmed by debutant Prerna Wadhawan.
She states, “I’m not a stranger to camera, so I’m very confident and as of now, my chances are 50/50.” She is in conversation with others filmmakers too and will be in the city until next week. Apparently, there are rumours of her appearing in a reality show doing the rounds too. The diehard fan of Hema Malini and Madhuri Dixit adds that she is not surprised by the inflow of Pakistani artistes into Hindi film industry. “Let’s get real here. Talent is coming from everywhere, not only from Pakistan.
There are European people working here, too. This wasn’t the case, say a decade ago. In my opinion, it’s a healthy trend and there’s nothing wrong with it,” adds the television personality who became the first female Pakistani to host late night programme. On being asked whether she’ll follow Veena Malik’s footsteps, Mathira maintained a diplomatic stand. “People should just work on what they are good at. There is a thin line between being vulgar and being sexy.”
