Filmmaker Karan Johar‘s Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham… was epic for more than one reason. It gave some iconic Hindi cinema characters and one of them was Poo. The oh-so-stylishly-mean character was played by Kareena Kapoor Khan while child-artist Malvika Raaj played the younger Poo in the film. Now, the same little Poo from K3G is finally making her Bollywood debut in a full-fledged role.
As reported by Mumbai Mirror, the actress will be seen opposite Rinzing Denzongpa, who’s the son of veteran actor Danny Denzongpa. The film, directed by Jyoti Kapur Das, is titled Squad. It’s an action drama which is going on the floors in April this year.
Malvika talked about her role and her chemistry with Rinzing to the daily. She said, “She (her character) is very knowledgeable about weapons, which is important to the storyline. There’s a lot of action and a little bit of romance with Rinzing.” She added that she’s fortunate to be having a female director helming her first film. Malvika, who’s the niece of actress Anita Raaj, said, “I am glad that we are breaking from stereotypical thinking that a woman can’t direct an action film. These days there is no gender differentiation and I am pretty sure my director will nail it.”
Revealing how she shares her childhood with Rinzing, Malvika said, “We were in the same school and grew up in the same social circle. When we were young, we even attended each other’s birthday parties so now sharing the screen with him is going to be a lot of fun.”
The stunning actress is also quite active on social media. Malvika has shared some absolutely stunning photos of her on Instagram. Take a look:
