Sudhir Mishra is having a tough time casting for Mehrunissa!

Sudhir Mishra is having tough time casting for his forthcoming film Mehrunissa that already stars Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor in main leads.

Mehrunissa is a story of two close friends (Amitabh and Rishi Kapoor) who fight as a young girl comes between them. The film will have a younger version of Amitabh and Rishi Kapoor, and the title role of ‘Mehrunissa’ will be played by a young actress. The story is known to have quite a comic flair to it since the duo meets each other after thirty years and discovers that the girl they loved did not choose either of them.

Apparently, Mishra’s first choice for ‘Mehrunissa’ was Chitrangada Singh who has just finished shooting for his film Inkaar. Needless to say, the actress doesn’t seem too interested to be a part of this movie even if it means acting with Amitabh and Rishi.

Reportedly, Mishra was keen to sign Vidya Balan for the role. Though interested, Vidya is yet to confirm the news and sign on the dotted line. Mishra wishes to start shooting the film at the end of this year. Let’s hope the director manages to find his Mehrnissa well in time.

Mehrunissa will be produced by Nikhil Advani.
