If a poll was conducted asking which Bollywood actress is most suited to play Alice in the desi version of ‘Alice In Wonderland’, we’re sure Katrina Kaif would win hands down. But director Shashanka Ghosh, who made the delightful and quirky Quick Gun Murugun, hasn’t yet finalized the leading lady of his adaptation of the famous book by Lewis Carroll.
Ghosh will contemporize ‘Alice In Wonderland’ into an Indian setting. Alice of the book will become Alisha in the movie. While Ghosh plans to stay loyal to the book in his adaptation, he would add another character of a school teacher (modeled on the book’s author) in the movie.
The director hasn’t yet finalized the leading actress but he wants someone who is “sexy” and has “childlike bewilderment”.
The movie will have lots of special effects and Ghosh wants to make it at a par with international fantasy flicks like ‘Harry Potter’ movies or ‘The Lord of the Rings’.
Alice In Wonderland is the story of a bored girl who follows a rabbit through a burrow and falls right down through a tunnel into another world where she shrinks to a smaller size and later turns into a giant. She meets several strange animals and creatures in this magical world.
