Southern beauty Priya Banerjee to make debut with Aishwarya's comeback film JAZBAA

Of late, social media has become an intrinsic part of almost all Bollywood stars' lives. But it's interesting to know that the micro-blogging sites can also pave the way for work in the industry. That's exactly what happened with newcomer Priya Banerjee, who after working in a few Tamil and Telugu films, is set for a Hindi debut with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's comeback venture, JAZBAA to be helmed by Sanjay Gupta.
'Sanjay sir was still in the process of zeroing in on a girl for an integral part of the film. The film's casting director was yet to cast anyone, when one day, someone tagged sir on a social media, with a video featuring Priya. Since sir had some free time on hand, he without any inkling of the video's content or intention to cast her-saw it and was immediately hooked,' says an insider.
According to the insider, Priya, who's born and brought up in Canada, fit the rule perfectly. 'Actually someone has tagged me in a video that had one of Priya's Tamil films and a short film. I watched it and thought she looked superb. Then, I asked my casting director to find the girl. Later, when we find out that she hasn't signed any other Hindi film, we auditioned, and she was impressive there. She is a fine actor and plays an important role in the film,' says Gupta.
JAZBAA also stars Siddhanth Kapoor and Irrfan Khan.
