Katrina Kaif’s sister, Isabelle, is in the news for making her Bollywood debut in Remo D’Souza’s forthcoming film, Time to Dance. Isabelle will be the leading lady in the film and will be seen opposite Sooraj Pancholi. During the promotional interactions of Race 3, on being asked how Isabelle came to be casted in the movie, Remo said, “I was looking for a fresh face. Also, someone who would be good at dancing, since the film is based on dance mostly.”

The director also revealed how an industry aide recommended her name. “Someone from the industry came forward and told me, ‘why don’t you take Katrina’s sister, Isabelle, who is indeed a good dancer. She is also keen on being part of the Hindi film industry.’ It is then that we approached Isabelle, and through auditions, we decided to take her in our film,” added Remo. The director, who is a talented dancer himself, vouched for Isabelle’s dance skills. “She is a good dancer and above all, she also works very hard. Isabelle is practicing rigorously without leaving any stone unturned,” he said.

 

However, Remo’s revelations are contrary to the information doing the rounds, that it was Salman Khan who recommended Isabelle’s name. Remo dismissed the thought by saying, “No, this is not true. In fact, Salman Khan came to know about Isabelle while doing our film, Time to dance, much later.”
