Hunky Bollywood star Salman Khan will set the silver screen on fire when he is paired opposite reigning Miss Universe Jimena Navarrete Rosete in the sequel to the superhit film “Partner”.
The film, being shot by ace director David Dhawan, will reportedly feature the beauty queen in a role that requires her to speak Hindi and perform some typical Bollywood bump-and-grind routines, The Times of India reported.
"Jimena will romance Salman Khan in the ‘Partner’ sequel. The makers were looking for the female lead in the film and felt that Jimena fits the bill but she will have to learn Hindi and some Bollywood dance moves for her role,” the publication quoted a source as saying.
The Mexican model is currently on a 10-day tour to India to promote designer Sanjana Jon's Celebrate The Girl Child Campaign and told media recently of her admiration for Khan and her desire to act in Bollywood movies.
Navarrete Rosete recently met Khan and has already started taking lessons in Hindi. Jon will style her clothes for the film, the source said, adding: “Sanjana, who is close to both Salman and Jimena, has been instrumental in making this happen."
Both Khan and Dhawan have yet to make an official statement.
All we can say is, we hope she doesn’t go the way of the disastrous Barbara Mori.
