Sunny Deol has been added to the cast of the Pahlaj Nihalani directed debut film ‘Avatar’. Veteran producer Nihalani turned director with ‘Avatar’ after getting tired of waiting for good directors to come by. Govinda plays the lead role of a PT teacher in the film, and is working hard to tone down his physique to suit the role.
And now Sunny Deol has been roped in to play the sports instructor, with Shatrughan Sinha playing the dean of the institution. The female lead of the film though is yet to be decided, it is likely to be an associate of Govinda. “It is a girl called Raifa. She is very good as an actress and the film too is shaping up really well,” says the actor. Pahlaj Nihalani was a producer who had given a break to Govinda in his film ‘Ilzaam’. Govinda has not forgotten that debut that happened almost three decades ago and is forever indebted to Nihalani.
Govinda, in the meantime, is also working in another film called ‘Afra Tafree’ where he has been paired opposite the leggy lass Mugdha Godse.
