How Randeep Hooda's make-up artist was cast for a nurse’s role in his upcoming film
Deepak Tijori’s Do Lafzon Ki Kahaani starring Randeep Hooda is finally set to hit theatres next month after a long struggle for that perfect release date and a source close to the project tells us that the actor’s make-up artist, Renuka Pillai will be making her acting debut with it. She plays a nurse — a role that accidentally fell into her lap while she was busy getting Randeep ready for his scenes.

“Renuka barely had any ambitions to act, but it was on location that the director decided to cast her. She will share screen space with Randeep,” informs a source.
The director was not too happy with the casting agent’s initial selection for the nurse’s role and so, took the decision impulsively. “They were shooting in Malaysia when Deepak felt he needed a replacement for the nurse’s character. He requested Randeep to ask his make-up artist if she could volunteer,” adds the source.
Deepak confirms the buzz, saying, “The casting agent did not get us the actor I would have liked to play the nurse. I wanted someone to be well versed in Hindi. So, at the last minute, I requested Randeep to offer the role to Renuka. She was willing to play the part and that’s how she is making her acting debut.”
