Celina to work with Connery
MUMBAI: Former Miss India and Bollywood actress Celina Jaitley couldn’t have asked for more. First she landed a role in Hollywood film Quest of Sheherzade and now she will team up with Oscar winner Sean Connery in the international project based on Arabian Nights.
Quest of Sheherzade is scheduled to go on floors in January and also stars Orlando Bloom of Pirates Of The Caribbean fame. It will be directed by Ken Khan, the technical director of fantasy adventure film Lord of the Rings.
“Sean Connery is there in the film and recently Orlando Bloom was also signed. I am playing an important character of an Iranian princess,” Celina said.
“The story is based on Arabian Nights and they are planning to start the shooting from January next year. I am in a contract and can’t talk much about the movie,” she said.
Quest of Sheherzade is not her first international project. Celina plays the lead in New Zealand-Australian venture Love Has No Language by the same director.
