The film being an Indo-Pak love story, the producers were keen
T-Series and Pooja Bhatt have finally found their leading lady for Kajraa Re and Himesh. It is Mona Laizza, a popular Pakistani television actress. Hope the chemistry between Himesh and Mona Laizza will be as unusual as the leading lady's name and the leading man's nasal singing!
Said T-Series creative director Divya Khosla Kumar:"We were looking for a girl who had the innocence in her and was from Pakistan. It was not easy, Kajraa Re being an Indo-Pak love story. We checked out more than 70 girls and finally zeroed in on Mona Laizza. The look of the film is different and we are still in the process of finalising the look of the characters."
The director, Pooja Bhatt, added, "Javed Sheikh was instrumental in helping us get Mona. She fits the role opposite Himesh perfectly and we are hoping Javedji will also do an interesting role in the film."
The love story stars Himesh as a lawyer and will be shot in Lahore, Morocco and Europe. Everyone hopes, of course, for the sake of the two brotherly nations if no one else, that Mona Laizza proves luckier for Pooja Bhatt and the team of Kajraa Re than Meera's Nazar. (SAMPURN)
