Director Hansal Mehta and actor Rajkummar Rao‘s partnership is considered to be one of the most effective actor-director pairings in Bollywood. As the duo has earlier worked together on three projects, everyone expected that Hansal would cast Rajkummar for his next project ‘Simran‘ which stars Kangana Ranaut in the titular role and the film will be shot in the US.
As per the reports it is not Rajkummar but ‘Ship of Theseus’ actor Sohum Shah who may play Kangana’s love interest in the adventure drama. According to a source, “The character required a mature actor and Hansal felt that Sohum suited it better. So, he has decided to cast him instead of Rajkummar.”
Though this news has not been confirmed by the actor or the makers, it would be quite interesting to witness the fresh chemistry of Kangana and Soham’ Talking about ‘Simran’, Kangana Ranaut is depicting the role of a Gujarati girl in the film but not many know that her character in the movie has shades of grey too.
She will be playing the role of a girl called Praful Patel, a housekeeper, who gets embroiled in a crime. The film will be shot across the US including Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Jose, San Francisco and Atlanta.
‘Simran’ is being jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar and Shailesh Singh. Written by Apurva M Asrani, the film is to hit the screens in 2017. – CINEWS
