Kiara and Sakshi

Kiara, who is the niece of glamorous Juhi Chawla, has already stepped into Bollywood with her debut film Fugly. About choosing Kiara over the leading ladies, a source close to director Neeraj Pandey said he was in search of a fresh face. “It was quite challenging to find the right girl to play Sakshi as people at large have seen her quite frequently on television and in person, so they would tend to compare. Neeraj was clear that he wanted a young actress in this biopic. He didn’t wish to cast a leading lady who has done many roles because he didn’t want the audience to have a preconceived notion or form an impression about her. He basically wanted an actor without baggage,” he added.

The film has been regularly in news from time to time for incidents that reflect Sushant’s hard work for the role and thus expectations from the film has been high. Now, how the fresh pair gets along is to be seen. The film is set to release in 2016 after many delays.
