Pooja signs fresh face for Holiday!

Bhatt’s are the true dream merchants; keeping up to their commitment of launching fresh talent in every film here they are on Holiday with Onjolee Nair. Onjolee Nair, a TYBA student from Jai Hind College, a trained classical singer and dancer, is the new lead of Pooja Bhatt‘s Holiday. Originally, Pooja’s niece Smiley, was to do the role but after a week of shooting, Pooja decided that her acting abilities were not up to the mark. Interestingly, Onjolee had already auditioned for the Bhatt’s for Paap, despite the fact that Pooja was immensely impressed with her potential; she rejected her, as she needed someone with a certain North-eastern look. I play a gawky character, a complete contrast of the dancer in me. I was require to shed my poise, agility and fair looks to get into the skin of the character of the rather clumsy girl I am playing, gushes Onjolee, when asked about her role. Ask her about the skin show that is closely associated with the Bhatt movies and she says in Holiday, Pooja is the boss and besides being the director she is my guardian angel. This is a breezy subject and I am not aware as yet of any sizzling scene with my co-star Dino Morea, and even if there are I am sure Pooja will shoot them aesthetically.
