When one is gifted with a gorgeous face and immense talent like Anushka Sharma is, the filmmakers won’t mind queuing up with offers. This Yashraj find has had two prominent filmmakers vying for her dates -- Anurag Kashyap and Rajkumar Hirani. If the former wanted to cast her opposite Ranbir Kapoor, the latter had his eyes fixed on her for a fresh pairing with Aamir Khan. So which project has Anushka chosen?
The industry insiders say that the reason why the two well-known filmmakers want Anushka Sharma in their films isn’t hard to understand. “The logic is simple: in that age group, she is the most talented actor in Bollywood. You don’t have an option as good as Anushka,” the source is quoted as saying. The actress is definitely in for big things in the future as both the films -- Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet and Hirani’s Peekay -- are mega projects with a strong star cast.
However, initially, the role of Aamir Khan in Peekay was supposed to be done by Ranbir Kapoor, as Aamir was committed to other films and had no dates to spare, but later the actor agreed to be the main lead in the film, which is set to roll around the year end.
Well, don’t you want to know how Anushka Sharma got over this dilemma? There were definitely some date issues she was dealing with, reveal sources, and that’s why the makers of Bombay Velvet weren’t sure that she would sign the film.
Actually, both Hirani and Kashyap wanted Anushka Sharma’s dates in November and December. But now that Bombay Velvet has been pushed to next year, she can easily fit both the films in her schedule. She has already been confirmed for Peekay and an official announcement for Bombay Vetvet is awaited.
Anushka Sharma seems to be the new Khan heroine; the actress has already done a film with Shahrukh Khan and is also doing another one. Now her kitty has a film with Aamir. Who’s next, Anushka?
