While everyone’s totally in love with Sidharth Malhotra in Hasee Toh Phasee, Vinil Mathew, the director recently revealed how he was not very sure of casting Sidharth Malhotra in the movie!
“’Actually, I was a little confused after I saw Sidharth in STUDENT OF THE YEAR. Initially, I didn’t think he would suit the role, but then it was Karan who suggested that I cast him as Nikhil in HASEE TOH PHASEE. Most people think that only Parineeti has the more important role, but the film is film Sidharth’s point of view” was what he said, talking about it.
But Parineeti Chopra, he was sure of, right from the moment the script was ready. “’I'd seen LADIES Vs RICKY BAHL’ and I was impressed by the energy and comic timing of Parineeti. I was sure then too that she would be the perfect choice to play the lead character in HASEE TOH PHASEE. Parineeti has played a role that no one has ever tried before” Vinil Mathew says, talking about it.
And however long he took to zero in on these two, he’s definitely made the right choice, as both Parineeti and Sidharth have done an incredible job also sharing a great chemistry in Hasee Toh Phasee.
