Subhash Ghai has found his Kaanchi
On his 67th birthday, filmmaker Subhash Ghai announced that Bengali girl Mishti will play the lead in his 19th film Kaanchi.
Having discovered talents like Manisha Koirala, Jackie Shroff and Mahima Chowdhary, Ghai admits he was on an “intense struggle” to find his Kaanchi.
“I went on auditioning the most beautiful girls and the talented ones; around 350 girls were auditioned to get the right Kaanchi, the way I had imagined in my script. I found so many beautiful girls with talent but could not find my Kaanchi in them till I saw a picture of Mishti, who is from Kolkata,” Ghai said in a statement.
“As I auditioned Mishti, I knew in the very first shot that she was the Kaanchi I was looking for,” he added.
The male lead in the film is Kartik Tiwari, who was last seen in Pyaar Ka Punchnama, and will soon be seen in Akaash Vani.
Kaanchi is set to release on 15th August 2013.
