The model-turned actress who has been busy with her assignments down South, bagged the role after around 200 girls auditioned for the same. The movie, a sequel to Masti (2004), will have the same male leads — Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani and Riteish Deshmukh, eprising their roles from the original. Kainaat is paired opposite Vivek.
Kainaat, who is late actress Divya Bharti's cousin, will sport two looks in the movie. "She plays a nerdy girl, who sports a look similar to that of Ugly Betty. Like the latter, she will be seen in braces, glasses and fringes. Later, she transforms into a hot babe. It is a great role and she couldn't have asked for a better debut," our source says.
She has also done an item number with Tamil superstar Ajith in Mankatha. Though she has been consistently getting offers for item numbers from Bollywood, Kainaat has refused most of them as she wanted to make a debut with a full-fledged role.
