Who’s that girl?
The Jab We Met director has finalised model Nargis Fakhri to play the role opposite Ranbir Kapoor.
Nargis is half-Kashmeri, half-Czech and was one of the new faces in a recent swimsuit calendar.
The 21-year-old grew up in New York but is an ardent follower of Bollywood. Earlier, Imtiaz had given a break to Brazilian model Giselle Monteiro in Love Aaj Kal.
A source reveals, “Imtiaz has been auditioning girls for a while now.
He found that the Anglo-Indian look of Nargis completely suited the character in the film, but she underwent several screen tests before Imtiaz took her on board.
While Ranbir plays a rock star, Nargis will play a dancer in the film.”
Imtiaz Ali remained unavailable for comment.
