Aamir Khan starrer Secret Superstar which was released in the year 2017 was a huge success at the box office. The performances of the actors were being praised by audience and critics, all of them.
The first choice for the movie was Shekhar Kapur and Suchitra Krishnamoorthi’s daughter Kaveri. In an interview with a leading daily, they revealed that their daughter was approached for Insiya’s role.
“I’m very keen to see Kaveri in a movie. She was offered Aamir Khan’s Secret Superstar (a role which eventually went to Zaira Wasim) but she declined the offer. I begged her to do just this one film, but she wanted to focus on being a singer-songwriter at the time.”
The actress also spoke about her comeback to the big screen after 8 years. Suchitra was last seen in 2010 film Mittal V/s Mittal alongside Gulshan Grover and Rituparna Sengupta and will next be seen in RAW: Romeo, Akbar, Walter, also featuring John Abraham, Jackie Shroff and Mouni Roy.
Talking about how she grabbed the role, she told the tabloid, “I got a call from the casting director a month ago but I was leaving for a Himalayan trek. But soon afterwards, I injured my back and was advised not to continue the trek. Two days later, they called again and I gave my nod. This is the first time I am working in such a big film in a commercial setup,” she said.
Coming back to Kaveri, let’s see when do we see her making her big splash in Bollywood.
