New girl Kristina Akheeva in `Yamla Pagla Deewana 2` finds admirer in Dharmendra
Mumbai: Australian model Kristina Akheeva, who is making her Bollywood debut with ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 2’ (YPD 2) opposite actor Sunny Deol, has found an admirer in veteran actor Dharmendra.
YPD 2 is the sequel of the 2011 film ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana’, which also starred the Deol trio - Dharmendra with his sons Sunny and Bobby.
"She (Kristina) is a very beautiful girl. We wanted such a girl, after seeing whom Sunny`s character should fall in love with at the first sight. I thought that it will be great only if the audience will also fall in love with her at first sight," the 77-year-old actor said here at the cover launch of People magazine.
"I think people will surely love her," he added.
Actress Neha Sharma is paired opposite Bobby in the film. She made her debut in Hindi cinema in 2010 with "Crook: It’s Good To Be Bad", which failed at the box office.
‘YPD 2’ is slated to release June 7.
