Model Akanksha Puri will be making her Bollywood acting debut with Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Calendar Girls’. ��While it is a known fact that many of the characters in the film are based on real life personalities, Puri’s character is allegedly inspired by actress Shilpa Shetty’s life.
“The audience will find an uncanny similarity between Shilpa and Akanksha in terms of mannerisms and styling but the character eventually shapes up in a slightly different way,” a source informed Mid Day.
When the newspaper approached Puri, she did not deny the news and instead said, “All the characters int he film are inspired by some real life personalities from the film and fashion industry; 75 per cent is real life inspiration. ��However, it is difficult to say who is playing who and we were never told that. ��We just followed our director’s vision.”
‘Calendar Girls’ is slated to release this Friday, 25th September.
