They are known for launching a hundred faces. But, for a change, the Bhatts are finding it difficult to zero in on a new heroine for Dhoka, Pooja Bhatt’s next directorial effort.
It will mark the debut of ramp model Muzammil Ibrahim. For over two months, Pooja has been looking out for her heroine, but has drawn a blank.
“I want a traditional face, but someone who’s not exposed. Initially, I thought of Kangana Ranaut but I don’t think I want her because she’s a recognized face now. I want a fresh new girl. It’s true the process of finding the right actress may take time, but I’m willing to wait,” she asserts.
Pooja, incidentally, has moved out of Mumbai to live in her farmhouse in Kalote, Raigad.
“It takes two hours to reach Andheri from Churchgate, while Kalote to Andheri is just an hour’s drive. Isn’t it better?” she asks, adding, “I’m far from the madding crowd of the city It’s so peaceful...you have to come here and experience it.”
Pooja lives with her restaurateur husband Munna (Munish Makhija) and a gang of dogs for company.
