Amyra To Play Angelina
Not much is known about Vikram Bhatt’s upcoming thriller Mr. X, which features Emraan Hashmi and Amyra Dastur. While Emraan plays a character who can turn invisible at will, Mumbai Mirror reports that Amyra will play an undercover agent in the film. Speculation was rife that Amyra’s part is inspired by Salman Khan’s portrayal of Chulbul Pandey in Dabangg and its sequel, but a source close to the film’s production revealed that right from her styling to the cars she drives, her character has a lot in common with Angelina Jolie’s 2010 thriller Salt. However, the film is not inspired by the Hollywood flick. The film is being shot extensively in South Africa.

And the lyrics of the peppy number have been penned by none other than Salman himself. Palash Mucchal, who is only 18, has been roped in by Salman to compose the track, which will be the standout song of the film. Palash had previously composed for the Harman Baweja starrer Dishkiyaoon and more recently, Bhootnath Returns. Salman was very impressed by the composer and has decided to take him under his wings especially after he made it to the Guinness World Records for being the youngest composer in Bollywood. The film is scheduled to go on floors in January 2015 .The film will also feature Bipasha Basu, Lara Dutta and Celina Jaitley.
