“MY HUNT FOR KAANCHI IS OVER TODAY “

SUBHASH GHAI ON HIS NEW GIRL ‘MISHTI‘.
It is really a tough job to write a good script which, promises to be a blockbuster, as well as a great story with great characters, particularly the protagonist AND the tougher job is when you decide to pick up a newcomer to play the title role instead of an established star.
It was my very intense struggle to find a KAANCHI, I went on auditioning the most beautiful girls and the talented ones; around 350 girls were auditioned to get the right Kaanchi, the way I had imagined in my script.
I found so many beautiful girls with talent but could not find my Kaanchi in them till I saw a picture of MISHTI who is from Kolkata. As I auditioned Mishti , I knew in the very first shot “that she was the Kaanchi I was looking for”.
I was been looking more for the right face rather than a beauty. Today I am glad that my hunt is over. What I have to do is now is to just make a beautiful film ‘KAANCHI‘.
I will need your support and good wishes right through for KAANCHI.
NOTE ; Kaanchi will be Subhash Ghai’s 19th film and Mishti will be his sixth heroine that he will be introducing in Bollwood after Meenaxi Sheshadri, Madhuri Dixit, Manisha Koirala, Mahima Chowdhary and Isha Shravani.
Subhash Ghai is also known for presenting his heroines with a strong presence and beauty on screen, which included Aishwarya in TAAL and Katrina in YUVRAAJ.
