We all know that an entry into B-Town is definitely an opportunity of a lifetime and simply is getting more and more exclusive as years go by, Bollywood being home to star-kids, producer-kids, director-kids and much more. So for a dream debut, connection is a must for most people! The same goes for debutant Shweta Verma.
The debutant is all set to take the scream by a storm in Apoorva Lakhia’s production Hide N Seekwhich is being produced in association with Moser Bear and directed by Shawn Arahna whose been an assistant director to Apoorva Lakhia for many of his films including the highly critically acclaimed Shootout at Lokhandwala.
However, sadly for Shweta as much as she strives to be in the news for her film more than anything else it seems that a special connection off-screen is what is making her even more popular in B-Town these days. When asked by the media about this special connection, the actress did say she indeed has close connections with the King Khan and more so with wife Gauri Khan. However, sources of Mid-Day were able to dig up more on this ‘special relationship’. It is believed that Shweta met Gauri through a cousin and obviously the two hit it off really well since Shweta also stayed with the Khan’s in Mannat while she searched for an opening in B-Town. Despite all the hoopla behind her off-screen connection the debutant has remained a thorough professional and stated, “Yes, I know them but this is something extremely personal.”
Shweta has been an airhostess previous to her acting career and also pursed modelling before acting. In preparation to her career in films she’s attended classes at the infamous Anupum Kher Acting School.
Hide N Seek also stars Purab Kohli (Rock On), Arjan Bajwa (Fashion) and Ayaz Khan (Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na) and is slated for a 2009 release.
