Former beauty queen Celina Jaitly is set to return to Bollywood after seven years with Ram Kamal Mukherjee’s Hindi film ‘A Tribute to Rituparno Ghosh: Season’s Greetings’. The film is based on a mother-daughter relationship and Celina will be playing the role of the daughter, opposite veteran actor Lillette Dubey.
The film will also star debutant Azhar Khan as male protagonist. “I am extremely happy to be a part of ‘Sea son’s Greetings’, because I have always considered Kamal as a creative person and when he narrated me this story in Dubai, I had goosebumps.”
Paoli Dam was to play the daughter’s role in the film initially, but she isn’t being able to be a part of the project due to prior commitments. “I am feeling really sad that I will not be a part of the film due to my prior commitment which is incidentally clashing with the shooting dates of this film,” Paoli said in a statement.
