Isha Koppikar has signed for a role that is diametrically opposite to her chic and bindaas image.
To play a traditional Indian woman dressed demurely in a sari is the last thing you would have expected from Isha. But that is exactly what she is set to do in Rajshree Filmsâ€™ next production titled Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi .
Isha, who earned the title of an item girl after her Khallas song, says she was surprised when she got a call from Sooraj Barjatya to star in â€˜Ek Vivah Aisa Bhiâ€™.
â€œI loved the idea and challenge of playing a traditional Indian girl. I was gladly surprised when Sooraj ji told me that he has been tracking my work in films. It is an honour for me to star in one of his films,â€ says Isha.
The movie is based on a touching subject that tracks changes in a ten-year-long relationship of a couple. Actor Sonu Sood plays Ishaâ€™s love interest in the film.
â€˜Ek Vivah Aisa Bhiâ€™ will not be directed by Barjatya, but by his assistant Kaushik Ghatak. The film is also not a sequel to Barjatyaâ€™s last hit Vivah .
The movieâ€™s shooting is set to begin in January next year.
Now it remains to be seen how Isha looks in a traditional avatar.
