“Yes, I’ve signed the film. I’m excited because so far, I’ve played the girl-next-door. But here, I play a rough-and-tough girl and have action sequences," Ishita said to DNA.

Right after Firangi, the actress got married to Vatsal Sheth, the actor who was launched opposite Ayesha Takia in Taarzan: The Wonder Car.


Ishita's work on the small screen has also been appreciated and the one most liked daily soap of hers has been Life Ok’s Rishton Ka Saudagar – Baazigar.

The report by DNA states that the shoot of Tony D'Souza's film starring Karan and Ishita has already begun and will wrap up in March. The film also stars Sunny Deol in a pivotal action-packed role and is likely to release by the end of this year.

Karan Kapadia is the son of Simple Kapadia, who is the sister of veteran actress Dimple Kapadia. He is, thus, a cousin of Twinkle Khanna and the brother-in-law of Akshay Kumar. He assisted filmmaker Rahul Dholakia on Society, when he was just 14 years of age.
