Apparently that’s why Anushka Sharma lost out on Habib Faisal’s ‘Ishaqzaade’
Despite being one of the most sought-after actresses in Bollywood, Anushka Sharma has recently lost out on a plum film role that she had been coveting. The actress who auditioned for Habib Faisal’s Ishaqzaade was rejected as the makers deemed her to be too loud for the role.
A source adds, “Anushka had loved the script and was very keen to be part of the film. She auditioned for the role, but came across as a little too loud.
Ishaqzaade is a love story and there were certain specifications the makers were looking for as far as their lead characters go.” The film is being produced by the same banner under which the actress made her debut.
The source adds that the female lead character in the film is mellow and subtle. However, the kind of energy and personality Anushka has, she would not gel with what’s in the script.
Interestingly, Parineeti Chopra who has bagged the lead role in Ishaqzaade will be debuting in Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl with Anushka and Ranveer Singh.
We wonder if there will be any tension between the two girls on the sets. Says the source, “Parineeti is a newcomer, she still has a long way to go. There is no reason Anushka needs to be insecure.”
Sources also say that another reason why Anushka was kept out was because the production house wanted her to concentrate on Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl and her next film with Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif, directed by Yash Chopra. The actress is also doing Vishal Bharadwj’s Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola opposite Imran Khan.
Anushka remained unavailable for comment.
