From all the girls in the hockey team of Chak De India , Sagarika Ghatge (Preeti Sabharwal) certainly seems to have made an impression. Just after a month from the release of her debut film, Sagarika has already bagged her second film in the form of Apoorva Lakhia’s Mission Istanbul.
Sagarika caught the fancy of Apoorva when he saw her performance in Chak De India and approached the newcomer. She has apparently agreed to do the film which will also have Shreya Saran in a leading role. While Shreya reportedly plays Zayed Khan’s wife in the film, Sagarika is to be a CIA agent. Vivek Oberoi, Sunil Shetty, Zayed Khan, Shabbir Ahluwalia and newcomer Nikitin Dheer (son of character artist Pankaj Dheer) complete the cast of Mission Istanbul. Abhishek Bachchan will appear in a cameo. The movie is slated to go on floors from October 20.
We also hear that Chak De India is setting a record of sorts and recently the Aryans Business School (ABS) has included the movie as a part of their MBA curriculum. Apparently the film will be taken up for a case study that will help management students turn into effective leaders of tomorrow.
The ABS is of the opinion that the movie that starred Shah Rukh Khan as the coach of India’s National Hockey team that goes on to win the World Cup will help students understand concepts such as human resource management, motivation, determination, leadership and overcoming the worst situations in life. According to ABS, the film can be a good role model to be followed by one and all.
