Ali Zafar may star in ‘Mehrunnisa’


It seems Sudhir Mishra has finally completed the casting for his next film ‘Mehrunissa’. While muse Chitrangda Singh was the first to get on board, Mishra has now got ‘London Paris New York’ actor Ali Zafar as the lead opposite her. It’s quite an ensemble with Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor in the supporting cast. Mishra says, “It is too early to say anything. I have met Ali a couple of times at events and parties but I cannot say anything about the cast as of now. I am still scripting the film, so all the news about it is not true. There will be an official announcement soon.” This will be Zafar’s first time working with Mishra along with Bachchan and Kapoor. Chitrangda has worked with Mishra twice before. ‘Mehrunissa’ tells the story of an actor in the 1960s and the events in her life over the next 30-odd years.
