Deewaar Heroine Finalised:

After Gaurang Doshi announced the principal cast of his mega venture DEEWAAR LET’S BRING OUR HEROES HOME at a lavish launch in Mumbai, one kept guessing the name of the heroine who would be signed for the solo female lead. At least three leading ladies could be spotted at the launch party Shilpa Shetty, Lara Dutta and Preeti Jhangiani and that set the tongues wagging. Would it be one of them? Or someone else? Well, the suspense is finally over! Amrita Rao, who made her debut with Arya Babbar in AB KE BARAS and was later cast opposite Ajay Devgan in THE LEGEND OF BHAGAT SINGH, has been signed for the female lead in DEEWAAR. We needed a face that would pair off well with Akshaye and Amrita looks perfect for the part, Gaurang tells me. Incidentally, Amrita has been cast opposite new-find Shahid in Tips’ forthcoming film ISHQ VISHK, directed by Ken Ghosh and Farah Khan’s directorial debut MAIN HOON NA opposite Zayed Khan. While on DEEWAAR, Gaurang has insured the film for Rs. 30 crores, while the cheque of the one-time premium of Rs. 22 lacs will be paid by the producer to the insurance company in a couple of days. There could be mishaps on the sets, but I don’t want to take chances. That’s why I decided to insure the film, the producers states.
