Mahesh Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt always tries to bring some new talents to their movies. This time the lucky actress is Pakistani actress Mona Lizza, aka Sara Loren. Mona made a not so starry debut in Pooja Bhatt’s Kajra Re a couple of years ago.
News reports have it that Mona was chosen because the Bhatts saw her potential to sizzle up the screen with her sex appeal and they are super confident that she would make the same impact as Mallika and Jacqueline did.
There were certain reports in the media that Mona has replaced the film’s original lead actress Aditi Rao Hydari. To which, Aditi’s manager responded back stating that Aditi is very much the heroine of the film and that she is presently in South Africa shooting for the film. Mukesh Bhatt too rubbished the ‘news’ about Aditi’s exit from the film. “It’s just not true. Aditi is very much in the film.” He also added that, “The film is a two heroine-one hero project.”
This film not just marks the directorial debut of Mukesh Bhatt’s son Vishesh, but also will see Randeep Hooda as the leading man and instead of Murder’s permanent fixture and Bhatts’ blue eyed boy Emraan Hashmi.
With the sequels working well for the Bhatts, Murder 3 is surely to be looked forward to.
