The 18-year-old internet sensation Priya Varrier is reportedly in talks with filmmaker Karan Johar to star in his upcoming venture Simmba, which he is co-producing with popular Hindi filmmaker Rohit Shetty. If Johar finalizes the newcomer for the film, it will mark her debut in Bollywood.
In her recent interviews, Varrier has very openly expressed that she is a huge fan of Bajirao Mastani actor, Ranveer Singh, and if she ever gets an opportunity to work with him in a movie, she will never let it go. Looks like her coveted dream is set to become reality very soon as Simmba features Ranveer Singh in the lead role.
“The girl’s role is not so big in the film. But Priya has become an overnight craze with the wink of an eye. Bollywood is interested in her. And who better equipped to consolidate Priya’s supremacy in the virtual world in the arena of cinema than Karan Johar?” a source says.
To be helmed by Rohit Shetty, Simmba is expected to go to the sets in the second quarter of 2018. It is poised for its theatrical bow on 28th December 2018.
