Top supermodel Diana Penty has been chosen to play opposite Ranbir Kapoor in his next movie Rockstar. Diana is currently the face of Maybelline, having replaced Deepika Padukone in the role. She has also fronted for Virgin Mobile. “There were several rumours about the girl in Imtiaz Ali’s film,” says a source for the movie, “Imtiaz had almost finalised Anushka Sharma at one point of time. However, he eventually decided that he wanted a new girl for his film and has finally zeroed in on Diana Penty.”
Although a top model in her trade, Diana is adamant that she is not a size zero and doesn’t recommend young girls seek to follow this trend. “I think the masses have the concept of size-zero all messed up in India,” she says, “Size-zero is a very small size. It‘s a child‘s size.”
Very down to earth, Diana doesn’t really see herself as the celebrity with the golden future that others are predicting for her. “My closest friends are my biggest critics, I’m anything but a celebrity for them,” she argues.
