Divya Bharti’s cousin Kainaat enters Bollywood

The late ‘Deewana’ actress Divya Bharti’s cousin Kainaat Arora made Bollywood debut three years back with Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Khatta Meetha’ in an item number and now she is making her acting debut with Inder Kumar’s ‘Grand Masti’.

Kainaat says she is inspired by her cousin Divya Bharti.  "I hope if I even do little bit of what she did in the two short years of her career, my life will be sorted out," she said.

Kainaat Arora who will be seen in ‘Masti’ sequel ‘Grand Masti’ bagged the role after competing with 200 girls during the audition.

The film features Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani and Riteish Deshmukh reprising their roles from the original. It also stars Bruna Abdullah, Karishma Tanna, Sonalee Kulkarni, Maryam Zakaria and Manjari Fadnis.

"I bagged the role through the writer of the film, Milap. He approached me for this role and he said he was looking for a girl opposite Vivek. He said they had already tested 100 to 200 girls for the role.

"I went for the audition and the next thing I heard was that I was on board. I am the lucky one from those 200 girls who finally bagged the role," Kainaat said.

The newcomer says it was the opportunity to work with filmmaker Indra Kumar that drew her to Grand Masti.

"Masti was a big hit and when I got an opportunity to work in the sequel opposite Vivek, I just jumped into that without even thinking twice. Moreover it is an Indra Kumar film. He is a very sensible and senior director and I would have been a fool to say no to such a film," Kainaat said.

The film will hit theatres on September 13.
