Bollywood Starlet, Payal Rohatgi, to Compete in 'Survivor India - Ultimate Battle'

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2011) - Bollywood actress and model marooned on a deserted island!? Payal Rohatgi now adds castaway to her impressive resume, as she joins 19 other competitors on Star Plus' most anticipated new reality TV show, "Survivor India - The Ultimate Battle." Eileen Koch & Company has been retained to handle all of Payal Rohatgi's public relations needs.

Unlike the American version, Survivor India has created a diverse cast of ordinary individuals and top Indian celebrities to compete in an all-out battle of wits and endurance for the title of the sole survivor.

Payal Rohatgi brings her beauty, brains and brawn to the cast, as the Bollywood idol learns to catch her own food, build her own shelter and do whatever it takes to survive. Rohatgi was reluctant to accept the offer initially, due to the show's reputation of arduous challenges, backstabbing and drama; however, Rohatgi plans to use her integrity and instinct to propel her team.

Payal, a computer engineer by profession, decided to try her acting in Bollywood after she was noticed in an Indian Beauty Pageant. Rohatgi then moved to Bombay and began her career as a model for popular brands such as: Amul, Nirma, and Nescafé. Her beauty and immediate success captured the eye of talent agents, launching her illustrious movie career. In 2006, she landed her major breakthrough role in the film 36 China Town. She has also starred in Apna Sapna Money Money, Corporate, Fun - Can Be Dangerous Sometimes, Men Not Allowed, and Dil Kabaddi.

"Survivor" is a reality television game show that enjoys popularity in several countries across the world. The US version premiered 11 years ago, where it has completed 21 seasons, and has been successfully produced in over 48 countries worldwide.

Watch as the drama unfolds to see if Payal Rohatgi can outwit, outplay and outlast the others to emerge triumphant as the sole SURVIVOR!
