Model Heera Sohal, who hails from Punjab and has won numerous beauty pageants, has landed a big role in her debut film in the Telugu film industry.

The untitled film is being directed by Sreedhar Seepana and will feature Heera in one of the leading roles of the film.

According to reports in Deccan Chronicle Heera says, “After seeing my modelling assignment, the director called me for an audition. Since I am Punjabi and don’t know the local language (Telugu), I gave my audition in Hindi. The director liked my acting style and body language, and after a look test, I was on board.”

Heera, who has done few modeling assignments in the past, also shares something about her character from the film.

“It’s a modern character and I play my age; it’s an urban role with shades of glamour and performance. I have been to Hyderabad earlier too, but I am shooting here for the first time.”

Heera has already started working for her debut film.
