|Who will romance Anushka Sharma in her first production venture? It’s learnt that the actress is having a tough time finding a suitable hero for the movie NH10 -- her first film as a producer.
The latest buzz to grip the tinsel ville is that Anushka Sharma has dropped actor Raj Kumar Yadav from the movie’s cast. The actor was a part of the film before Anushka took up the project as a co-producer. Apparently for Anushka, the Shahid actor wasn’t a big name. Thus, the hunt is on for a suitable actor to romance Anushka Sharma in NH10, which happens to be a heroine-centric film.
It’s also being said that since the movie revolves around its woman character, the producers may not get an A-list hero for the film. Even the younger lot comprising the likes of Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra, Sushant Singh Rajput or Aditya Roy Kapur are doing solo-lead films. Does that mean Anushka Sharma will fly solo in NH10?
Certainly not! The film requires a hero, and newcomer Shiv Pandit, who made an impressive debut with Shaitan was also approached for the film. However, Shiv politely turned down the offer. Reportedly, the actor wasn’t happy with the role, and also wasn’t keen on working in a heroine-centric film.
Latest we hear is that the actor Neil Bhoopalam, recently doing the TV series 24, might do the lead role opposite Anushka Sharma, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
NH10 will be directed by Navdeep Singh of the Manorama Six Feet Under fame. The film earlier had Freida Pinto playing the lead, but she walked out of the film because the makers were delaying it.
Later Anushka Sharma came on board and agreed to play the lead role, but she had one condition: that she will also co-produce the film.
