Malvika Raaj roped in to star opposite Rinzing Denzongpa in ‘Squad’
The hunt for the female lead in Rinzing Denzongpa‘s debut movie is over. Malvika Raaj has been taken on board as the female lead opposite Rinzing. ‘Squad’ is an action-thriller and will go on floors in April this year. Malvika was seen in ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ where she played the young Kareena.
Malvika said, “I played the younger Kareena Kapoor in ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’. The film will always be special as that’s when I realised I wanted to act.”
While talking about her character in the movie, the actress said that the name of her character is Aria who is a sniper. She said, “She’s very knowledgeable about weapons which is important to the storyline. There’s a lot of action and a little bit of romance with Rinzing.”
Malvika and Rinzing know each other as they 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,” said Malvika.
Malvika’s role seems to be challenging and we would love to see her in a never-seen-before avatar. She has already started her training in weapons. The movie will be directed by debut director Jyoti Kapur Das. While talking about how excited she is to work with the female director, Malvika 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.”
