Vikram Bhatt’s ‘Hate Story’: Is Paoli Dam the mystery girl?

It seems the sexy back in the film’s poster might belong to the controversial Bengali actor

Vikram Bhatt sure has a lot on his plate – his new TV show, his directorial venture Dangerous Ishq starring Karisma Kapoor and now his latest production, Hate Story. He recently unveiled the first look of this film, directed by Vivek Agnihotri. Hate Story will hopefully give Nikhil Dwivedi a second lease of life in Bollywood, if he doesn’t end up being overshadowed by his leading lady.

Buzz is that the naked back in the poster belongs to Paoli Dam. The Bengali actor is known for being one of the boldest actors of the Bengal film industry and has even starred in the very controversial Chattrak. Paoli is known for shedding all her clothes for Choli Ke Peeche, a film that both Nandana Sen and Shahana Goswami refused because of the high nudity content. Her hot scenes in Chattrak so shocked the Bengali filmmakers that Pritam Sarkar, who had directed her other film Flop-e, refused to include her in its promotional activities, alleging that her presence would harm his film.

Looks like the Bhatts have found a new Mallika Sherawat. There’s been no official confirmation yet but whether it is Paoli Dam or not, we wonder if she will be as successful in Bollywood as Mallika was.
