LOCAL businessman Wahid Ali and his wife, Prabha Ali are set to appear in the Bollywood movie, "Supermodel" which is being shot in the country, including in their home.

The couple will play parents to the movie's main character played by Pakistani born actress and model, Veena Malik.

The couple, who opened the doors to their exclusively decorated home for the film shoot, are overjoyed to be in the movie.

"First I was very reluctant but then I thought about it and then I agreed to try it, I mean I have nothing to lose out of this," said Mr Ali.

Mr Ali is no stranger to filmmakers knocking at his doors for a chance to shoot scenes in his beautifully decorated living room, with his home already featured in a Tamil movie.

"By opening the house to them it will also be advertising our home to them and many people from around the world will be viewing our home.

"The film producers had been searching around the area for a good place to shoot some of their scenes and they chose our home and I'm very grateful to them for that," he said.

The movie which stars Ms Malik and actor Ashmit Patel will be shot at locations in Denarau and Nadi.

The movie is generally about a young woman's journey from a poor background to becoming a successful model and the brand ambassador of a successful wine company.
