We hear that Barun Sobti who played the lead in Sony TV's Baat Hamari Pakki Hai has bagged the meaty lead role. For the female lead, Sanaya Irani of Miley Jab Hum Tum fame has been short listed.
A little birdie tells us, "Out of the many known faces who had auditioned, it is Barun Sobti who has been finalized to play the male lead. Barun has signed on the dotted lines, but the hunt for the lead girl is still on. Sanaya Irani has been short listed for the same, but the final decision is yet to be taken. Search for the sister and her love interest is on".
TellyBuzz had earlier reported that the show is supposed to be the tale of a young and suave business tycoon and his elder sister, and how their life changes when they both meet their right match.
When contacted, Barun Sobti refused to comment. For the uninitiated, Barun was tipped to play the lead in Imagine's upcoming show Looteri Dulhan too.
Sanaya Irani on her part admitted that talks were on, but there was no confirmation as such.
We tried calling Producer Gul Khan, but she remained unavailable.
Director Nissar Parvez said, "Casting is still on, and nobody has been finalized".
The unit plans to go on floors as soon as the principal cast is finalized.
