Director Manish Tiwary has intentionally kept the identity of Amyra under wraps.
Issaq is a movie adaptation of Shakespeare's, Romeo And Juliet, in which Amyra's character is known as Bachchi. Prateik, 26, is said to be getting voice training as well for the movie.
"Since the film is an adaptation of Romeo And Juliet, the chemistry between the two is very important. After a lot of search we found the right girl. We were looking for somebody who is very young and innocent and at the same time can carry off the rustic look of a Banarasi girl," Tiwary said in a statement.
"We are very happy with Bachchi and she certainly looks very good with Prateik who has a lean look in the film," he added.
Issaq is a co-production between Shailesh. R. Singh and Dhaval Gada.
