Just about a year back, a good–looking and already successful model from down south made her Bollywood debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan, in his home banner production, OM SHANTI OM. Obviously we are talking about Deepika Padukone, the most sought after newcomer in town with a host of prestigious banner under her wings, after the blockbuster success of her debut film.

Cut to end 2008, another good–looking and successful model from Bangalore, Anushka Sharma, is all set to make her debut yet again, opposite King Khan with the December 12 release, Yash Raj's Aditya Chopra directed RAB NE BANA DI JODI. So, apart from debuting opposite Shah Rukh Khan and coming from the southern part of India, what's common to Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma?

Well, there is! Both of them were spotted by designer Wendell Rodricks, during fashion events. Wendell first saw Anushka walking for a small show at a jeans store in Bangalore. Wendell could sense the potential in her and took her to Bombay, where he made her the show–stopper in his Les Vamps show, at the Lakme India Fashion Week. Similarly, it was Wendell who spotted the talent in Deepika Padukone and was largely responsible for her successful stint as a model and her moving down to Bombay.

Here's wishing Anushka the same success and stardom that Deepika met with after her debut film. And with such a prestigious banner like Yash Raj Films and a dream debut opposite Bollywood's global superstar Shah Rukh Khan, this is not just wishful thinking!
