The tinsel town is hit by frivolous publicity tactics again. This time, by a London-based NRI model for a role in a big budget film sequel.
The NRI, Pearl Raah, rumoured actress of “Dabangg 3″ leaked her topless pictures to bag a role in Salman Khan’s “Dabangg 3”.
The sequel to Dabangg 2, is dragged into controversy even before the shooting of the film. The 18-year-old model claims to be sharing the screen space with Salman Khan in Dabangg 3 and even sent topless photos and a press release to a website to make this official.
She is shown as a close friend of the star in few articles. The reports also state that Khan invited her for dinner. But the website Bollywood Life.com has revealed all of this to be false.
It seems the two met when Salman Khan visited London last year. As per a source, they have been ‘good friends’.
Raah, who aspires to pursue Masters in business Administration from London, plans to shift to Mumbai soon against her family’s wish.
Salman Khan is speculated to have given real estate agent numbers to Raah.
The publicity stunt comes even before the shooting of the film.
As per the sources, Salman Khan is unaware of this model. Arbaaz Khan, director- producer announced that the shoot will begin next year as Salman Khan is busy with Sultan and other projects.
While promoting “Dabangg 2”, Salman Khan promised that “Dabangg 3” would be a prequel and portray the childhood of Chulbul Pandey.
On the contrary, Salman is shooting for his next “Sultan” with Ali Abbas Zafar.
To play a wrestler from Haryana, the actor has been training with professional fighters. “Sultan” also features Anushka Sharma, Randeep Hooda, and Amit Sadh.
It seems that Raah is doing this to gain publicity and get romantically linked with the star.
Will Salman Khan react to this controversy in the middle of his next release, is yet to be seen. As per Pearl’s publicity gimmick, it might not serve her good returns in Bollywood.
