Prateik, Ahana to Romance in Romeo-Juliet

Deol’s youngest kid, Ahana Deol is still her career to be debut but she is already in demand that’s why the upcoming has already grabbed a lead role for acclaimed director, Aparna Sen’s next. Ahana will play a character of Juliet and Prateik Babbar will play Romeo in the film.

Hema Malini will co-produce the film. Confirming the developments Hema says,

“Aparna has a lovely subject and I’ll be producing it. She wants to start shooting in September so we need to get everything in place quickly.”

Ahana was supposed to make her debut with Vikramditya Motwane’s Muqablo. But that project has been somewhat delayed. Hema says,

“Ahana agreed to be part of Vikramaditya’s film because he is a friend. But I think he wants to work some more on the script.”

When asked from what about papa Dharmendra’s diktat that Ahana won’t be acting? The elegant actress says,

That was just the protective father reacting. Ahana is a very sensitive girl. Dharamji feels she won’t be able to handle the criticism and the barbs which are an inevitable part of the profession.”

But with almost all the members in the Deol household facing the camera or getting behind it, Ahana, says her mother did not want to be left out. Says Hema,

“I know the kind of cinema Aparna makes. I think she will be able to tap Ahana’s talent and make a commercial and artistic film.”
