The director-writer Homi Adajania is rumoured to be eyeing Bollywood's Queen, Kangana Ranaut, for his upcoming project
Kangana Ranaut, who is currently shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Rangoon', seems to be on the wishlist of most Bollywood filmmakers.
We hear that the actress has caught the fancy of Homi Adajania who swears by Deepika Padukone, the heroine of his last two films, 'Finding Fanny' (2015) and 'Cocktail' (2013) apart from a social awareness initiative titled 'My Choice'.
A source says, "Homi is in talks with Kangana for a project that he wishes to direct himself. They have met for script narration sessions on a couple of occasions."
After wrapping up 'Rangoon', the actress will move on to Hansal Mehta's Simran based on an Indian-origin nurse who was arrested last year for a spate of bank robberies in the US and came to be known as Bombshell Bandit.
"Kangana's date diary is choc-a-bloc for at least the next six months. However, despite that, she has shown interest in Homi's project and has also met him to discuss the nitty-gritty of it. If things fall in place, she may sign it and start shooting by the end of this year or early 2017," says a source close to Kangana.
