Subhash Ghai's 'new find' Mishti from his film 'Kaanchi' is actually Bengali starlet Indrani Chakraborty
A few days ago, Subhash Ghai gushed in a daily about his 'new discovery' Mishti. The filmmaker apparently handpicked the Bengali newbie for his new project, touted as one of his most expensive and ambitious
Incidentally, Ghai who is known to be obsessed with the alphabet M, also stated how Mahima Choudhary was the only actress ever who he renamed.
However our sources indicate a very different picture. We are told that Mishti is actually a Kolkata-based Bengali starlet.
A source says, `Indrani is no fresh face, as claimed by Ghai. The starlet is part of a Bengali project that was being shot in UK. She has Prosenjit Chatterjee and Joey Debroy as her co-stars.`
Our sources from the Bengali film industry add that veteran director Basu Chatterjee's daughter Rupali Guha was helming the project.
Incidentally, the reason why Ghai scouts for fresh talent for his projects is because he apparently hates 'begging' established actresses for dates.
The source points out, `Ghai's film goes on the floors on February 18. Indrani has to complete her Bengali film too. We wonder how the filmmaker will adjust his dates this time.`
