"My first choice for the film was Vidya Balan. But had Vidya not done 'Kahaani' before, then she would have done this film. But I would certainly come with a script in future which would justify her," Agnihotri, who directed films like "Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal", told IANS.
"Now we have approached some other actresses...Let's see how things fall in place," he added.
Talking about his film, Agnihotri said: "The film is about women in today's society and the system that doesn't support them. It's a suspense thriller."
Will he cast his wife Pallavi Joshi in the film?
"Pallavi is doing a film with me 'Buddha In A Traffic Jam'. But she will not be in this film," he clarified.
