Tia Kar, one of the six top contestant of Indian Idol [ Images ] 5, has bagged an important role in two big banner films.
The first one is Pehli Baar Pyar Kiya Hai with Amitabh Bachchan [ Images ], Dharmendra [ Images ] and newcomer Mohan Kapoor directed by Sridhar Shetty, while the second one is Happy Christmas with Akshay Kumar [ Images ] and Deepika Padukone [ Images ] directed by Aziz Mirza.
Tia confirmed the news. "Yes I am doing both the films. I play Amitabh Bachchan's daughter in Pehli Baar Pyaar Kiya Hai and an angel in Happy Christmas."
Does that mean singing will take a back seat now?
"Not at all. Music is my passion, I will continue singing but I will do meaningful films," she says.
Both the films are expected to go on floors in November.
