This multi-talented artiste, who started Indian classical dancing since the age of 4, and moved on to become a mesmerizing model, has now made her Bollywood debut. Dancer-model Sumann, sizzling sexy seductress, has bagged the coveted lead role in an upcoming film to be directed by Vivek Sharma, who earned instant acclaim when Amitabh Bachchan agreed to work in his directorial debut ‘Bhoothnath’.
Scintillating Sumann is trained classical kathak dancer since the age of 4. She joined Sophia’s and aspired to be in the glamour business! She moved on to modelling and came into limelight with her date with debonair magazine cover. She did campaigns for eclectic Indian traditional fashion brand ‘Jashn’ and was declared as Femina’s model of the month. And very soon, she aspired to become an actress. She did ‘Truth Love Cash’ Season 2 where she was seen as a temptress.
Sumann says, “I am thrilled to bag my debut project with talented director Vivek Sharma who has worked on prestigious projects such as ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, ‘Kal Kissne Dekha’ and ‘Sir’ featuring debutante actresses who went on to become leading actresses of their time. I am confident that he will nurture my talent and make me realize my inner talent and potential.” Talking about her acting skills, Sumann says, “An actor has to be naked in front of the camera. The camera is a mother as it catches even a small lie but yet treats you like a child. I’m a natural in front of the camera and it will provide me opportunities to reveal my inner expression and communicate my emotions.”
Sumann refuses to talk much about the project as director Vivek Sharma has gagged her from talking about it. However, she does reveal that the film will be a commercial potboiler with irresistible masala ingredients.
Director Vivek Sharma adds, “Sumann has some strange mystical aura about her that leaps out of the frame and entices the viewer. I am sure that her dancing and modeling will help express herself very well as an actress. I have created a hatke character for her considering her dancing abilities and modeling skills. I am sure that she is going to take the industry by storm.”
