The production house recently announced Sasha Agha’s name, originally named Zara Agha Khan, for their film Aurangzeb, which is touted as the remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s cult film Trishul. In the movie Arjun Kapoor has double role, and it also stars Prithviraj. Aurangzeb already boasts of an ensemble cast of Rishi Kapoor, Jackie Shroff and Amrita Singh, and is scheduled for an early 2013 release. Directed by Atul Sabharwal and produced by Aditya Chopra the shoot for the film began some time in mid-August.
Though Sasha’s mother Salma Agha did conventional roles in her films like Nikaah, her daughter will be seen in a super glam look. The light-eyed debutante is the fourth generation actor from her family and bears a strong resemblance to her mother Salma Agha. Besides her mother, Sasha’s grandmother, Nasreen, worked with KL Saigal in AK Kardaar’s Shahjahan (1940), while Salma’s maternal grandfather Jugal Kishore Mehra and his wife Anwar Begum acted in Heer Ranjha in 1932.
Sasha Agha was in the news last year because of her alleged sex mms. She was caught on camera getting cozy with actor Ruslan Mumtaz, which she later denied at a press con. She has even changed her name from Zara to Sasha for her filmy career.
