Actress Evelyn Sharma has bagged a lead role in crime thriller Dannk.
She says the movie couldn’t have come at a better time as she’s ready to experiment.
The film, directed by Hasnain Hyderabadwala, will go into production this year.
While it would be Evelyn’s first solo lead performance, it will also be her chance to showcase her acting prowess in this fast-paced flick after doing light-hearted and frothy roles.
“Bollywood has been extremely warm in accepting me over the last two years, where I have substantially matured as an actor. Dannk comes at an absolutely perfect time, as I am confident of experimenting with a completely different genre and carry the film partly on my shoulders,” the Indian-German said in a statement.
“I am definitely excited, as this opens up new horizons for me both personally and professionally,” she added.
Seen in films From Sydney With Love, Nautanki Saala, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, Issaq, Yaariyaan and Main Tera Hero, Evelyn will play a teenager in Dannk.
“She’s a charming young woman who knows how to get her way out in life, and for her there are no boundaries when it comes to getting what she wants,” a source said of her role in the movie.
