That’s right! We are to see former Playboy covergirl Candice Boucher in her Bollywood Debut in “Azaan”.
Candice Boucher, 27-year old beauty from Durban, South Africa will be seen in the spy thriller Azaan, which is slated for release on October 14.
The film has already had an international screening when it was shown at the Cannes International Film Festival this May.
Candice rose to popularity when she became the cover girl for the April 2010 edition of Playboy magazine. The model has also featured in prominent international magazines that include FHM, Cosmopolitan, Elle and GQ along with several advertising campaigns for renowned international brands.
In Azaan she plays the role of an undercover agent who is disguised as a sand artist. She has been cast opposite Sachin Joshi, who is also a newcomer to the industry.
Recently Candice Boucher was in Mumbai for the promotional campaign of the film. She is highly elated with her Bollywood debut and has been tweeting about it ever since.
Her 10 days in India not only included her stay in Mumbai but several other cities that she toured along with the film team to promote their upcoming film. She thoroughly enjoyed her stay in Mumbai and was quite impressed by the lively celebrations of Ganesh Chaturthi.
At Cannes, she scorched the red carpet with an all-revealing black gown that she wore for the premiere of an Israeli film Hearat Shulayim, which has her as one of the stars in the film. The evening finally wound up with her posing for pictures with the team of Azaan.
Despite her sensuous image, Candice does not have much skin-exposing shots in the film. “It is a serious character,” she declares.
The film has been directed by Himesh Reshammiya’s brother-in-law, Prashant Chadha, who made his directorial debut with Aap Ka Surroor that had Himesh in the lead role. The film had surprisingly been a huge hit.
