You heard, didn’t you, that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was originally supposed to act in this film opposite husband Abhishek, but opted out followed by Gul Panag? Truth is, the Bachchan bahu was never approached and Gul was only tested for the role. If offered, would Ash have accepted the offer? Don’t know! But we’re glad she wasn’t asked, because honestly, audiences are fatigued by the Abhiash jodi already. And look who’s been taken on in Crooked instead, former Miss India Sarah Jane Dias! That’s not all, Kangna Ranaut, who has just won her first National Award, too has entered the film.
She takes Pakistani actress Soniya Jahan’s role since Soniya didn’t have the required work permit. Kangna was the original choice but didn’t have dates last year. But now that she’s free and Soniya is out, Kangna’s signed the film in which she gets to play a very meaty role.
And if rumours are to be believed, the crazy signing spree of beauties has not ended yet. Good for Jimmy Shergill, Boman Irani and, of course, Abhishek Bachchan.
