How did Mishti Mukherjee beat Richa Chaddha, Ankita Shorey, Madalsa Sharma and Pooja Salvi to become Subhash Ghai’s Kaanchi?

It took ages for the showman to find his Kaanchi. Watch video to know why…

Kaanchi has been in the making for a long time now. It is supposed to be Subhash Ghai’s comeback film after a long hiatus. Although the lead couple are rumoured to be dating, it took ages for Ghai to find the right Kaanchi for the film. Mishti Mukherjee was a surprise find for Subhash and when she was called for the auditions and look tests she was completely unaware of the fact that she was defeating popular B-Town heroines in the race.

In the video we get to see that Mishti defeated leading heroines like Richa Chadda (Gangs Of Wasseypur, Fukrey), Madalsa Sharma (Samrat & Co.), Pooja Salvi (Nautanki Saala) and many other TV heroines to win the coveted title of Kaanchi. She even defeated ex-Miss India Ankita Shorey, in the race and emerged winner finally.

Subhash informs that it was very difficult for him to cast the correct girl in the role. He informs, “It was very difficult to find Kaanchi, as there were girls with beauty but not acting, acting but not beauty and that’s when Mishti came into picture.” It is really exciting to hear the story of Mishti from Kolkata to Mumbai and to becoming Kaanchi.
