Bengali belle Konkona Sen Sharma is a rapidly rising star on the firmament of Hindi film industry.

Konkona has proved that she can hold her place opposite seasoned actresses like Rani Mukherjee and Madhuri Dixit in her last two films. Now, the actress has bagged roles that were originally meant for Tabu .




Just a few days back, Konkona was confirmed for Zoya Akhtar's film Luck By Chance for which the debutante director had approached Tabu in the first place. However, Tabu had some reservations about the script and has now been replaced with Konkona.

On another front, Mira Nair has roped in Konkona for a small role in a very dramatic scene in her Hollywood project Shantaram that will star Johnny Depp in the lead. Amitabh Bachchan has also been finalized to play a don.

Mira is apparently impressed by Konkona's work in a number of films.

Irrfan Khan has also been signed for an important role in 'Shantaram'.

Other Bollywood actors on Mira's wishlist are: Arshad Warsi , Pankaj Kapur , Shreyas Talpade and Ranvir Shorey .

The shooting of 'Shantaram' has been delayed due to the ongoing writers' strike in Hollywood. The movie might go on the floors by the end of next year.
