Preity’s director Prem Raj turns actor

Prem Raj, earlier known as Prem Soni who last year directed Preity Zinta‘s home production Ishkq In Paris, is now on to another phase of his career.


After a quiet six months Prem has emerged as an actor, the leading man-no less. According to a source close to Prem he is all set to play the lead in a film called Phone Affair.


Giving out details the friend said, “It’s directed by Tamil director K.S. Vishal who has made close to 450 ad films. Vishal turns producer with Phone Affair. His banner is called Raging Bulls. He was a creative director at the J Walter Thompson (JWT) for seven years.”


Prem who we hear is also starring in a remake of the Rishi Kapoor comedy Raffoo Chakkar, heard Vishal’s script and fell in love with it.


Interestingly, the film in which Prem Raj makes his acting debut is a bi-lingual.


Says the source, “While South Indian hero Nakul will play the lead in the Tamil version of Phone Affair, Prem will star in the Hindi. Both the versions will be shot simultaneously in Poland.”


Other Directors Who Turned Leading Men:


Guru Dutt, and Farhan Akhtar.
