A few months ago, Preity Zinta had launched a nationwide hunt via Twitter searching for a small girl in the age group of 4 to 7 years to play the role of her younger self in her maiden home production Ishkq In Paris.
However, when the actress couldn’t find any worthy candidate, she decided to cast her 6 year old niece Maya for the said role. Maya is Preity’s brother’s daughter and stays with her family in Los Angeles. Despite having not faced the camera before, 6 year old Maya impressed everyone with her act in the film.
Ishkq In Paris directed by Prem Raj releases on November 2 this year.
