Subhash Ghai is in a frantic search for a younger girl to play the title role in his new directorial venture Kaanchi. The film is based on a love story of a young beautiful girl from the northern mountains who fights against big power. According to the director it’s a story of great human spirit.
Talking about Kaanchi, the director said, “This is the best women oriented film ever written or presented till now in Hindi cinema, as far as I know. This is the best script of mine so far with so much passion, energy and drama of today … A wholesome entertainment for masses and classes both.”
Set to go on the floors in January-February of 2013, along with the new talent, Kaanchi stars veterans like Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Chakrovarhty. For the music of the film, Ghai has brought in Ismail Darbar and Salim-Sulaiman. We hear that two very melodious songs have already been recorded and are ready and waiting for the first schedule to begin.
Ghai says, “I am too excited to start my film, but I am waiting for that lucky girl who will play Kaanchi?”
When asked what kind of a girl he wants to play Kaanchi, he explained, “I am looking for a girl aged between 19 to 21, medium height, stout and sports girl type — fair with bright eyes, extrovert and vocal by nature with fair amount of talent. We shall take care of rest of her special training as required by the script.”
