The filmmakers of SNAFU have finally found their leading lady, we hear
A little birdie tells us that the makers of SNAFU have roped in Puja Gupta opposite Abhay Deol. Apparently, 50 fresh faces were auditioned over 20 days for the female lead in SNAFU. Director Sethu Sriram liked Puja but he had two more names in mind. So he asked Abhay’s opinion and asked his crew to vote and finally Puja got the highest votes. Puja who was seen in films like F.A.L.T.U. and Go Goa Gone will be seen playing the role of Aaniya in SNAFU. Aaniya is an ambitious corporate highflyer who hails from a small town and moved to the city of dreams to pursue her career.
Sethu Sriram said, “It’s a relief that the hunt is over. This role is very critical to the storyline and the girl had to be much more than singing, dancing and looking good. After a lot of deliberations we have decided upon Puja. Aaniya is an ambitious small town girl so we needed the vulnerability of a small towner along with high glam quotient who would be a head turner. I have auditioned a lot of promising fresh faces and a few upcoming names, some of them were brilliant but Puja fits the bill naturally. With all humility, I want to thank Abhay who helped me in streamlining the process.”
