Bengali girl Mishti will play Subhash Ghai’s ‘Kaanchi’


Filmmaker Subhash Ghai’s hunt for his dream girl for his next project ‘Kaanchi’ is finally over. He has found his ‘Kaanchi’ in Misti from West Bengal, Kolkata. She will play the lead in his 19th century film 'Kaanchi'. Subhash Ghai in the past has discovered talents like Manisha Koirala, Jackie Shroff and Mahima Chowdhary. He admits that he made an intense struggle to find his ‘Kaanchi’.

"I went on auditioning the most beautiful girls and the talented ones; around 350 girls were auditioned to get the right Kaanchi, the way I had imagined in my script. I found so many beautiful girls with talent but could not find my Kaanchi in them till I saw a picture of Mishti, who is from Kolkata," Ghai said in a statement.

"As I auditioned Mishti, I knew in the very first shot that she was the Kaanchi I was looking for," he added.

The male lead of the film will be played by 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' and newly released ‘Akaash Vani’ hero Kartik Tiwari.

Ghai says: "It is really a tough job to write a good script which promises to be a blockbuster, as well as a great story with great characters, particularly the protagonist. And the tougher job is when you decide to pick up a newcomer to play the title role instead of an established star.'

Recalling the time how he chose his leading lady, Subhash Ghai shared, 'I found so many beautiful girls with talent but could not find my Kaanchi in them till I saw a picture of MISHTI who is from Kolkata.  As I auditioned Mishti, I knew in the very first shot 'that she was the Kaanchi I was looking for'. I was been looking more for the right face rather than a beauty.

Subhash Ghai announced his leading lady on his 67th birthday. Today, he is glad that his hunt is over and found a beautiful girl for his next project.

Subhash Ghai's last flick 'Yuvvraaj' was a disaster at the box-office. After a long hiatus, he is set for direction. The film will go on floor very soon.
