After months of intensive search and rigorous churning Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has finally found his Sahibaan for his love tale ‘Mirza Sahibaan'.
Saiyami Kher, who will soon be seen in YVS Chowdhary's 'Rey', has been roped in to play the lead role in Rakeysh Mehra's upcoming film Mirza Sahibaan.
After making a film like 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', Rakeysh Mehra is all set to direct a love story, which is set in two different time spans. While one part of the story is set in 17th century, the other part of the story unfolds in 2015.
Interestingly, Anil Kapoor's son Harshvardhan will play the lead role in the film. Saiyami Kher, niece of talented actress Tanvi Azmi and granddaughter of yesteryear's leading lady Usha Kiran.
Saiyami's aunts Tanvi Azmi and Shabana Azmi seemed unaware that Saiyami had been finalised for the coveted part opposite Harshvardhan. "I knew she was under consideration. But I wasn't aware she has been confirmed. That's terrific news," said Tanvi.
Rakeysh confesses the decision to cast Sahibaan wasn't easy. "We searched for our Sahibaan for months. We finally shortlisted three girls, all strong possibilities as being the final choice. We put all three under rigorous training. That Saiyami finally got the role was a matter of just a slight edge."
With such a interesting casting, we can't wait to see the actor's debut film.
