Meet the newcomer in Bollywood – Sanjana Sanghi who has acted in three Bollywood blockbusters. When she was just 14, she played the role of the younger sister of ‘Heer’ who is played by actress Nargis Fakhri in the movie ‘Rockstar’. After that, she starred in ‘Hindi Medium’ in 2017 alongside Irrfan Khan wherein she plays the role of younger Meeta in the movie. Recently she played the role of ‘Katty’ in blockbuster ‘Fukrey Returns’.
At the age of 21 and not coming from a filmy background, bagging lead roles in the industry with a big star cast and director is not everyone’s cup of tea. Sanjana Sanghi is a graduate from the LSR college, in Delhi and she did advertisements for many brands like ‘Dabur Almond Hair Oil’, ‘Subway’, ‘Tanishq’, ‘Coca-Cola’ and others.
Mukesh Chabra who was the casting director for Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar, knows Sanjana Sanghi since then and when the duo reconnected after a few years, Mukesh Chabra found actress Sanjana Sanghi to be the perfect choice for Hazel Grace Lancaster’s (the young girl diagnosed with Cancer in The Fault in our Stars) role in his movie. This young Sanjana will be starring opposite actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Due to her brief role in Ali’s ‘Rockstar’ she has been roped in for the Hindi remake of this Hollywood blockbuster. Sanghi’s casting has been confirmed on Twitter by the director.
The shooting of the remake will start this year soon once Sushant Singh Rajput is done with his pending projects and the music of this emotional love story will be composed by the music maestro ‘A.R.Rahman’.
