Director Farah Khan says Shah Rukh Khan is producing her next female-centric film, but the selection of cast has got delayed as the actor is busy with Imtiaz Ali’s movie.
The movie requires two young actresses. “Shah Rukh Khan is producing the film. He was supposed to do casting for me but he is in Prague shooting for his film (referring to Imtiaz Ali’s next). So, let’s see what happens next,” Farah said.
“The film will have known faces. We will have two young heroines, we are yet to zero-in on anyone yet. We will announce the cast before we go on floors,” she said.
Meanwhile, there is a speculation that Farah may helm a biopic on tennis star Sania Mirza and it will have Parineeti Chopra playing the lead role. Notably, during an event earlier, Sania had said she would love to see Parineeti playing her onscreen in a film.
“It is all Chinese whispers. Sania was asked if a biopic is made on her who would she like to play her in a film, she gave some name of an actress. Considering I am her best friend, people expect me to direct the film. As of now, she is busy with the US Open,” Farah said.
When asked if she actually has a plan to make a film on the tennis star, Farah said, “She has to send me her book (Sania’s autobiography). I am waiting for her to send me the book.” – CINEWS
