New Delhi, Jan 11 (IANS) Swedish actress Elli Avram is set to make her Bollywood debut opposite Manish Paul in "Mickey Virus".

Director Saurabh Varma zeroed in on Elli after auditioning 200 young women. Little did he know that the actress is the daughter of veteran Swedish actress Maria Granlund.

Maria has worked with Ingmar Bergman in Oscar-winning film "Fanny" and "Alexander".

Elli has done a lot of theatre in Sweden too.

"We had approached few known female actors for the lead opposite Manish but later we decided to cast a new face. We chose Elli through auditions because she fitted the bill perfectly," Varma said in a statement.

"Later we got to know her identity when we met her mother. I am not surprised we found her so comfortable in front of camera while doing rehearsals," he added.

Produced by Dar Motion Pictures, "Mickey Virus" is a comic thriller set in Delhi around the life of a Punjabi computer geek Mickey (Manish), who plans a con of a lifetime.
