Pakistani actress Mona Lizza to star in 'Murder 3'
Pakistani actress Mona Lizza, is being relaunched in Bollywood as the lead actress of 'Murder 3' opposite Randeep Hooda.
Lizza made her official debut in Himesh Reshammiya's 'Kajraare', is hoping to get a fresh lease of life to her career by getting in the Bhatt camp and starring in 'Murder 3'.
Mona Lizza, who has been rechristened as Sara Loren for the film, is busy shooting in Cape Town for the movie.
Born in Kuwait, Lizza shifted to Pakistan as a teenager when her father died and took up a career in films to support her family.
Starting off with a small role in Pakistani film, 'Rabia Zinda Rahegi', Lizza struggled to get a foot-hold but soon shifted to Mumbai to enter the Indian film industry.
At present, Lizza is shooting in Cape Town for the film and joins the league of Mallika Sherawat and Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez, who earlier featured in the Murder series.
'Murder 3', like the previous two films from the franchise, is also a rip-off of international hits which marks the directorial debut of Mukesh Bhatt's son Vishesh Bhatt.
Only, this time, the Bhatts' have procured the rights of remaking from Fox Production.
The Murder series has made out stars from lesser known models and starlets.
The first of its kind bold thrillers from the Bhatt camp proved to be a magic wand for Mallika Sherawat and Jacqueline Fernandez, who got sensational debuts with the Murder series.
Mallika, who made a debut with 'Khwahish', got instant stardom with 'Murder', in which she played the lead. Ex-Miss Sri Lanka Fernandez, who made her debut in 'Aladin', tasted fame only after 'Murder 2'.
After Mallika and Jacqueline, the Bhatts are now relaunching Lizza who hopes her stars will also shine like the other two actresses.
