|Phantom Production’s NH 10 could have been Freida Pinto’s ticket to Bollywood, but the actress walked out of the film after a few months of its announcement, leaving it heroine-less. Now, the makers are considering Anushka Sharma for the role. Will the vivacious actress accept it?
NH 10 has been in limbo for the past few months, and the makers Anurag Kashyap and co. want to start it without any further delay. It’s heard that director Navdeep Singh has already approached Anushka Sharma for Freida Pinto’s role. Incidentally, Anushka is already working with Anurag Kashyap in Bombay Velvet.
Why did Freida Pinto opt out of NH10? The Slumdog Millionaire actress had signed the film in November last year, but decided to quit it in May this year. Her reason was “tardiness on the part of producers”.

After Freida made her stance clear, Sonam Kapoor was apparently approached for the same role, but the style diva turned down the offer.
Now, if things go as planned, then the movie NH10 will finally get its heroine. As per sources, Anushka is considering the role and is in talks with Phantom Prod. and Navdeep. Her dates could be an issue, but she will take the call soon.
The movie will have Anushka Sharma playing a detective.
