The 19-year-old beauty would star opposite Prateik in the Hindi remake of Gautham Vasudev Menon's Tamil blockbuster Vinnaithaadi Varuvaayaa. She has acted in South Indian films before.
Says Gautham, "We signed her on after seeing her Tamil film. We did a workshop with her to help with her Hindi diction. She has learnt all her dialogues." She has replaced Trisha, the Khatta Meetha actress, who acted in the Tamil film.
