The casting of the actors for Mr. Chaloo have been complicated since its inception. Previously, pairing of Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan was originally planned.
Priyanka Chopra was approached for the movie after her performance in Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do. The actress shared a good rapport with the directors of the movie Zoya Akhtar, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. Zoya Akhtar is also the co-writer of Mr. Chaloo.
After hearing the whole story narration by the director of Mr. Chaloo Reema Kagti, Priyanka Chopra immediately agreed for the proposal.
Well, other actresses like Richa Chadda, Kangana Ranaut and Sarah Jane Dias are also part of the movie, but there are still speculations in the casting of the characters for the lead role.
Reema Kagti’s Mr Chaloo is the remake of The Devotion Of Mr. X. The shooting of the film will go on floors from September.
