Indo Asian News Service

Mumbai, July 19 (IANS) Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar has roped in Nargis Fakhri for "Madras Cafe" and says that he is re-launching her in filmdom with his movie on terrorism.

She made her Bollywood debut with hit musical romance "Rockstar!" as a college going student. While her co-star Ranbir Kapoor was praised for his performance in the film, the actress managed to impress with her looks.

Now Sircar is presenting her as a journalist in "Madras Cafe", a political-thriller, which deals with terrorism and civil war and was reportedly shot in Sri Lanka and India.

"This is Nargis's debut film. I introduced Nargis in a commercial and then she did 'Rockstar'," Shoojit told reporters in a group interview.

Showing confidence in the actress's acting skills, he further said: "I can assure you, she will surprise everybody with the film. This is the reason I am telling you Nargis is debuting with 'Madras Cafe'."

With three films in his kitty and a National Award, Sircar, the man behind "Yahaan", "Vicky Donor" and "Shoebite", says that he is "particular about my actors".

"I don't let them go till I get the best out of them. Nargis will be re-launched with the film," he reiterated.

"Madras Cafe" features John Abraham in the lead and the actor is also co-producing the film.
