Isabel's debut film Dr Cabbie features The Big Bang Theory's Kunal Nayyar.
Slow and steady seems to be the course
of Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif's younger sister Isabel's career. She
has been signed to play the second lead opposite British Indian actor
Kunal Nayyar in French director Jean-Francois Pouliot's Dr Cabbie.
The film, co-produced by Salman Khan, features Vinay Virmani, who played one of the title roles in Bejoy Nambiar's undervalued David.
Salman wanted to cast Isabel opposite Vinay, but by the time the
decision was taken to cast her, it was too late, says a source.
"The G.I. Joe actress Adriane Palicki had already been signed
opposite Vinay. So Isabel stepped in to co-star with the film's second
lead Kunal Nayyar, who has worked in the hit British series The Big Bang Theory," said the source.
Sources from Canada, where the film is being shot, say co-producer
Salman is taking a keen interest in the project and in Isabel's role.
According to sources, Isabel will make her full-fledged Bollywood debut
in 2014 in a film that may be jointly co-produced by Salman and Katrina.
Speaking from Canada, the film's leading man Vinay said: "Isabel has
joined our project. She's a really sweet girl, very easy-going and fun
to work with.
