Why did Farah Khan reject Sonakshi Sinha and Parineeti Chopra?

The choreographer-turned-director reveals that she wants a hot dancer as the leading lady in Happy New Year. But she doesn’t want either Sona or Pari for the role. So what exactly is FK trying to say?

Farah Khan is currently busy hunting for the perfect girl who can teach three left-footed males to dance in Happy New Year. And all sorts of names are aiming to make it to this list, we hear. But two gals that our darling birdies thought could make it to the cast were Sonakshi Sinha and Parineeti Chopra. Will they?

Farah, who appears shocked to hear these rumours, has denied it point blank and has even said, “I don’t think a newcomer will suit this role.” Why? Doesn’t she trust a newcomer to whip the males – Shahrukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham – into their dancing boots? Perhaps.

But let’s not forget that the no-newcomer rule isn’t the only criterion in FK’s head. “I need a very good actor who can who can dance very well and look hot at the same time,” she said. So aren’t Sonakshi and Parineeti hot enough for the director? Or maybe she is sceptical about their dancing capabilities. Possible, no? Now if not the newbies, then who could that elusive ‘she’ be – Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone or Katrina Kaif? Perhaps.

So tell us what your gut feeling says, readers: Who do you think will finally make it to the cast of Happy New Year?
