Ira Khan, who is all set to direct an adaptation of Euripides' Greek tragedy Medea, offered a role to Hazel Keech and let's just say that it was an offer that the Bodyguard actress couldn't refuse. Ira Khan announced Hazel's association with the project in the most interesting way possible. On Monday, Ira shared a picture, in which she bent down on one knee as she offered the script to Hazel and the rest is history. Ira Khan wrote: "She said yes. It's amazing to get to work with you as a friend but more importantly as an actor, I can't wait to see what we make."
