Word around town was that cinematic genius Shyam Benegal had once again approached Amrita Rao after Welcome to Sajjanpur to play the lead in his next venture and that Amrita had refused Mr. Benegal. Now that does sound like an absolute death wish for an actress to reject a director like Shyam Benegal, but we are glad to report that our very smart Amrita did no such thing. On the contrary, she thinks of Welcome To Sajjanpur as the highest point in her career and wouldn’t do such a thing to Mr. Benegal even in her dreams. What the news headlines had not captured was that it was in fact Minissha Lamba who was offered the role in the first place and not Amrita. Minissha being the clever young lady she is jumped at the opportunity of a lifetime and is now on board this prestigious project titled Abba Ka Kua.
Well Minissha fans, looks like the girl is on an ultimate high. After finally making a mark in main stream cinema with Bachna Ae Haseeno and the not so successful Kidnap, things are finally lighting up for the talented girl and we simply couldn’t be happier!
