Miss India/Universe 2008 winner Simran Kaur Mundi, who will make her debut with Jo Hum Chahein is someone many celebrities will remember having met somewhere.
Simran Kaur Mundi is soon making her Bollywood debut with ‘Jo Hum Chahein’. But before the title she had won in 2008, she used to work at a multiplex where it was her job to organize tickets for the crème de la crème of Bollywood.
Post MBA she was anxious to join corporate job and so immediately grabbed an opportunity to work as a guest relation manager with a multiplex in Andheri. A friend of the model-turned-actress told a leading daily, “Simran never saw herself being part of the glamour world. She was more than happy in settling for a corporate job.”
Though Simran’s job was to organize the tickets for the A Listers as from actors to producers, but getting into films was never in her head. One fine day the makeup gurus Bharat and Doriss spotted her on one of their visits to the multiplex and offered her a ticket to the Miss India pageant.
After winning the title she got busy with her modeling assignments and gradually got her first film produced by Aman Gill. Even here she was taken aback when she got to know that Aman, who had shortlisted her, used to call her for tickets as well. Simarn says, “My life changed completely after I won the title. I used to deal with lot of people in the industry when they had to book tickets, one of them was Aman. When I was shortlisted for Jo Hum Chahein and went for the last rounds of auditions, I couldn’t believe that he is the same person for who I used to book tickets some years back!”
On contacting Aman, he said, “Yes, I do remember calling her up to book tickets for the stars. We were looking for a tall, fair girl for the film and she was apt for the role.”
