Sheetal Mallar makes her Bollywood debut with John Abraham

Vicky Donor director Shoojit Sircar seems to be fascinated by unusual faces. So while he introduced earthy beauty Yami Gautam in his first film, in his next we’ll see 38-year-old Sheetal Mallar romancing the beefy John Abraham

Shoojit is all set to direct Jaffna, a political thriller. We hear that John and Sheetal’s love story in the film is going to be supremely unconventional. And it seems when the Vicky Donor director approached Sheetal for the first time, she was quite reluctant to give her nod to the project. Sheetal is content with her modeling career that has now transformed into a passion for photography and when she was asked to try her hand at acting, she wasn’t very excited about the offer.

Although Shoojit has managed to convince the babe that she fits the bill perfectly, we are impressed with the fact that B-town rules are changing slowly and steadily. There was a time when a Bollywood heroine’s career would end by the time she approached her 40s, but looks like it’s different now. Considering that Ms Mallar is all set to start her journey in Bollywood, we hope the babe make waves with her thespian skills. And if she doesn’t, we will just be happy with the fact that times are changing in this age biased industry…
