Lalit Modi’s niece makes Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Gippi

The shy 16-year-old lands a role that she hadn’t even auditioned for

While Lalit Modi has earned more than his share of fame as the infamous IPL boss who cut shady deals and probably changed the game forever, his sweet little niece is on her way to making it big in B-town. Jayati Modi, the 16-year-old niece of Lalit Modi, will be making her Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Gippi.

Jayati, who lives in Delhi, came across an ad on Facebook and told her school friends about the auditioning, but she didn’t give any auditions herself. But as luck would have it, director Sonam Nair chose to cast her. Sonam apparently saw Jayati in the crowd and was impressed by the girl’s attitude. “She was not bitchy but had the right attitude that was required for her character. She fit the part of Shamira naturally. In real life as well she is very much like her character. She is intelligent, good with sports and extra-curricular activities and very popular in her school,” said Nair.
