From what we hear, Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Ankita Lokhande, who is a popular TV actress, was the original choice for Farah Khan’s Happy New Year, which now stars Deepika Padukone as the female lead. Surprised? Well, we were equally shocked rather than surprised.
The film, which stars Shahrukh Khan in the lead, will see its leading lady play a Maharashtrain girl and so Farah couldn’t think of anyone better than Ankita, as she is a typical Maharashtrain.
Buzz is that, the TV actress couldn’t qualify for the role because of her hot temperament and rude behavior. Once Farah got to know this side of the actress, she immediately changed her mind, and Ankita lost out on her dream debut.
