The leading lady of Vikram Bhatt’s upcoming film Bhaag Johnny is a face that will charm you. Joining the league of foreign bred actresses who have made a Bollywood entry like Katrina Kaif and Nargis Fakhri, Bhatt’s new discovery is the gorgeous faced Mandana Karimi.


An import from Iran, the babe will hit the silver screen in Bhaag Johnny as a lead alongside Kunal Khemu and Zoa Morani. Born to an Indian father and an Iranian mother, Mandana grew up in Tehran, before being discovered by Vikram Bhatt.

“I don’t want to be known just for my looks,” she quips. “I’m ready to experiment with roles from everything cliché to bizarre. My aim is to enact varied characters with all kinds of shades,” remarks Mandana. But ask her about her role in Bhaag Johnny and all she says is, “Wait and watch. Let me not spoil the surprise.”

Coming from a foreign country, one might think that Mandana would have to learn Hindi first. But the girl reveals, “I can speak Hindi pretty well, though I’m working on perfecting my accent now.”

Mandana has walked the ramp for many fashion designers including JJ Valaya, Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla, Rohit Bal, Anna Singh, Satya Paul and even done an advertisement for Royal Stag with none other than the Badshah of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan, and another one for Sony Ericsson with Kareena Kapoor.
