Freida Pinto, who got massive fame in Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, was going to make her Bollywood debut in Navdeep Singh’s film. But now we have heard that Anushka Sharma is all set to knock Pinto out of the competition and sign the dotted lines for the very role. Anushka Sharma is in talks with Anurag Kashyap’s Phantom Productions for the film and is things pan out as per their expectations, Anushka will be seen playing the female lead in NH10.
Reportedly, Freida Pinto had signed for the film in November last year. But later, she backed out of the project as the project kept delaying because of the producers. Atleast that;s what Freida had to say. Apparently, the makers of the film wanted to rope in Sonam Kapoor for the detective role but the actress put down the offer.
Now that Anushka Sharma is already doing a role in Anurag’s Bombay Velvet alongside Ranbir Kapoor in the lead, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the same jodi being casted for NH10 as well.
