Rumour has it that actors Sonakshi Sinha and Parineeti Chopra are the two names that have popped up for the role, but Farah denies it. “I don’t understand how so many names are floating around for this film. Even I get shocked to see what’s happening. We haven’t approached anyone as yet,” she says.
However, the 47-year-old filmmaker has clarified that she will not go for a newcomer as the heroine for her film. “I don’t think a newcomer will suit this role. Like for Om Shanti Om, I was very sure I want a newcomer but not in this case. I don’t think a newcomer can do it unless it is a Madhuri Dixit type... like how she was in Tezaab someone has to be of that level... which I don’t think is going to happen,” says Farah.
