Talent hunts were held accross the country to find a suitable new face to start opposite Shahrukh Khan in Aditya Chopra’s directional venture Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, to release on December 12th. Still, all efforts failed and Chopra was left in quite a quandary. His film is to begin shooting soon, but he had no leading lady.
He searched around the clock for the perfect face, when in fact he ended up choosing an actress that has recently made an entry into the fraternity. Sonam Kapoor has reportedly been signed for the role, though no confirmation has been made by either party. Sources tell Mumbai Mirror that the film will be a love story between a 40 year-old man and a 16 year-old girl and Sonam fits the bill perfectly. Her character apparently has obvious traits of a Punjabi girl that Adi hasn’t been able to find anywhere else.
However, since there has been no confirmation, things can always change at the last minute. For now, get ready for a completely new and fairly interesting jodi to hit the screens this December!
