‘Kaanchi’ actress Mishti to romance Salman Khan


The dismal performance of ‘Kaanchi’ at the box-office has not dampened the spirit of the Bengal girl, Mishti and she is all set to prove her acting prowess in filmmaker Subhash Ghai’s next outing opposite Salman Khan. Mishti is not ready to give up so easily and she went ahead to sign another film of the showman.

Mishti has signed three films deal with Ghai and the filmmaker has planned to have Salman Khan in his next movie and he has signed Mishti opposite the hunk. Mishti and Subhash Ghai share a great working relationship and both are quite happy to work together again despite the poor show of ‘Kaanchi’.

Salman has worked with Ghai in ‘Yuvvraaj’ which too was a box-office disaster. The filmmaker would start shooting of the film very soon once Salman wrapped up with Sooraj Bharjatya’s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’.

Meanwhile, Ghai is looking into the creative part of Salman Khan’s ‘Hero’ starring Athiya Shetty and Sooraj Pancholi which is the remake of his 80s’ hit ‘Hero’.

Mishti who is struggling to firm her foot in Bollywood is quite miffed with her detractors who have compared her with Aishwarya Rai in ‘Taal’.

“I don't play a city-bred chick who knows how to modulate her voice and walk as though she's on the ramp. I walk and speak clumsily because that's the way my director Subhashji conceived my character. She is not sophisticated like Aishwarya Rai in Taal,” Mishti is quoted as saying.

Mishti finds the comparisons with Aishwarya unfair. “Kaanchi is my first film. I am learning. I am trying to understand the grammar of film acting. Luckily for me I got a fantastic teacher in Subhash Ghaiji. Whatever I know about acting comes from him.”

Speaking about her next film with Subhash Ghai. She said, “I’ve a 3-film deal with Subhashji. Even if I didn’t have that to fall back on I wasn’t going to leave just because people criticised my first film. I’ve several offers in Bangla. But I am not shuttling back and forth between Kolkata and Mumbai to keep my career going. I’ll stay put in Mumbai fight my way through the criticism that has come to me for Kaanchi.”

Mishti said ‘Kaanchi’ has matured her and made her stronger than before.

Mishti said, “It’s is said, what can’t break you makes you stronger. These last few days have matured me. It’s amazing how one weekend can change one’s entire life. Today I feel stronger than I did earlier. I think I’ve grown up.”

“That’s one year of my life. During the last one year I did nothing except Kaanchi. It was my life. Now there is a feeling of disappointment at the way some critics have responded to the film and my presence. There is also a vacuum within me, as I’ve nothing else lined up at the moment,” she added.

Hope, Mishti’s chemistry with Salman rocks at the box-office!
