Anushka Sharma to be cast in Shree Narayan Singh’s next titled ‘Jasmine’? – Director Shree Narayan Singh is busy finishing the details on his film with Shahid Kapoor that will go on the floors shortly.
However, he has already announced another film. Titled Jasmine, Singh won’t be directing this one, but just co-producing it with Prernaa Arora. He told a portal, “Jasmine is the journey of a girl from her youth to motherhood, of eternal love between a mother and a child. I have always wanted to work on a woman-centric film and I’m able to do so now.”
We hear that the team wants Anushka Sharma to play the titular character — that of a surrogate mother — in the film. Says a source, “Anushka is on the producers’ mind. The actress is known to take up such hard-hitting subjects and although the narration is yet to happen, the makers will soon pitch it to her.”
When we asked Shree about his preference for Anushka, he said, “I haven’t even met Anushka or spoken to her. I have just announced my film. First thing I need to do is to lock a director for the project. The casting will be decided later.’’ The guessing game continues.
