Mumbai, May 9 (IANS) Model Anushka Sharma will play Shah Rukh Khan’s leading lady in “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”, which is being directed by Aditya Chopra. Yash Chopra, Chairman, Yash Raj Films, Thursday announced that the 19-year-old from Bangalore has been selected to play the female lead.
“We were looking first and foremost for someone who could truly embody the spirit of small town Punjab and we know we have found her in Anushka,” said Yash Chopra.
“And while she has no previous acting experience, we have seen that unique spark in her that makes us confident that she will be a standout even opposite Shah Rukh,” he added.
