Mumbai, Feb 29 (IANS) Television artiste Deepshikha will be seen as a nosy page 3 journalist in media magnate Nari Hira's 'Bhram' and the character is loosely based on well-known columnist Shobha De.

Deepshikha's character thrives on writing spicy news about the rich and famous and she is perpetually on the lookout for controversies. Her latest target in the movie is an investment banker, played by Milind Soman. She is all out to expose and destroy his reputation.

'I am playing the character of a good looking but nosey page 3 journalist who is on the lookout for scoops and scandals,' said Deepshika.

Deepshikha's look and dressing style are based on Shobha De's look and personality, even to fine details of Shobha's trademark silk and chiffon saree look, bindis, funky junk jewellery et al.

'The character is stylish with classy saris and funky jewellery. But the character is very bitchy.'

According to sources, Bhavna Iyer, who has written the story of 'Bhram', was also the editor of Stardust and therefore was well versed in spicy journalism.

But Deepshikha did not mind that her character was based on Shobha De.

Slated for a March 14 release, 'Bhram' is a thriller directed by director Pawan Kaul and also stars Dino Morea, Sheetal Menon and Simone Singh.

Shobha De was a protege of Nari Hira, who gave her a break as editor of their film magazine Stardust. And Shobha De shot to fame in the showbiz by writing about Bollywood stars and their personal lives.
