After Ranbir Kapoor and Vidya Balan, Ms Sharma might don the hat of a defective for Navdeep Singh’s much-delayed project NH10
Freida Pinto, who shot to fame with Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, was supposed to make her big Bollywood debut with Navdeep Singh’s film. But now we hear Anushka Sharma might step into her shoes. Apparently, the Band Baaja Baaraat actor is in talks with Anurag Kashyap’s Phantom Productions for the film and if things materialise, Ms Sharma will be seen playing a female detective in NH10.
Reportedly, Freida had signed the film last year in November. But she backed off from the project as it kept getting delayed ‘coz of the producers. Well, that’s what Ms Pinto claimed. Apparently, Sonam Kapoor too was approached for the detective role but the fashionista rejected the offer.
Well, Anushka is already doing Anurag’s Bombay Velvet which also stars Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. So it wouldn’t be surprising if she agrees to do NH10 as well, hai na?
