Ashutosh Gowariker’s new find Shamata Anchan

Ashutosh Gowariker has worked with some of the finest actors of the country. He has also introduced two actresses in very major roles: Gracy Singh opposite Aamir Khan in Lagaan and Gayatri Joshi opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Swades.

One hopes Ashutosh's new female discovery would have a better future in showbiz. Shamata Anchan who was the Femina Miss India South winner in 2012 is best known for her presence in a shampoo advertisement.

Now she plays the lead in Ashutosh Gowariker's inspirational serial Everest which will be aired on Star Plus in July-August.

Says a reliable source, "It's a serial about a girl who aspires to climb the Everest. Ashu chose Shamata Anchan after auditioning dozens of athletic girls. He wanted someone who looked convincing as a mountain climber."

The fastidious filmmaker has put the debutant through rigorous mountaineering lessons.

Says the source, "Ashutosh wanted Shamata to not only look convincing climbing the Everest he also wanted her to put forward the emotions and feelings of a girl who wants to touch the sky."

Apparently Shamata would be launched in style by Gowariker on the big-screen as well.
