Mumbai: Ace designers Wendell Rodricks and Varun Bahl are set to mark their acting debut with the film "Shab".
Rodricks has also styled actor Ashish Bisht for the Raveena Tandon and Sanjay Suri starrer.
Bahl plays himself in the film. He is seen as part of a jury panel with Raveena judging models. Ashish plays a model, and Rodricks will play an integral part in giving Ashish's character his first break.
Talking about roping in the designers to make an appearance in his film, director Onir said in a statement: "Varun and Wendell are very dear friends and were sporting enough to immediately agree to be themselves in the film. It was fun shooting with them.
"Wendell was so sure I will edit him out as he is very camera shy, but he is in the film as a mentor to the character of Ashish who he styled. Varun looks super sexy on screen."
Co-produced by Sanjay, Bhavna Talwar, Onir and Mohan T. Mulani, the film is slated to release on July 14.
