Mishti is a 21-year-old girl from Kolkata, and her name means sweet in Bengali.
Director Subhash Ghai says, “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,” .
“ I liked her pictures and decided to call her to Mumbai. We made her go through various screen tests for six days. I must say she came out with flying colours. She is an actress of Kajol’s calibre. As I auditioned Mishti, I knew in the very first shot that she was the Kaanchi I was looking for.” he added.
Kaanchi is a musical-thriller and is the story of a an innocent girl from Uttarkhand whose father, an ex-army man, gets shot. This event turns her life upside down and after a certain point, she refuses to be the victim, stand up to fight her way out and emerges as a winner. Ismail Darbar & Salim Suleman have contributed to the tunes of the film. Kaanchi is set to go on the floors by February 18th.
The male lead in the film is Kartik Tiwari, who was last seen in “Pyaar Ka Punchnama”, and will soon be seen in “Akaash Vani”.
Ghai says: “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.”
