Urvashi Rautela, the 18-year-old, who is making her Bollywood debut with "Singh Saheb The Great" has impressed director Anil Sharma, who believes she has a long way to go.
"Urvashi is playing the leading lady in the film. She has done a wonderful job in the film. She has justified her role and she has a long way to go. So let us welcome this new girl with all our good wishes," Sharma told.
Urvashi is said to have replaced Ameesha Patel in the movie, and will be seen romancing Sunny Deol, who is 38 years senior to her.
Urvashi won the I Am She Miss Universe pageant in 2012, but she had to give up her title because she was found to have been 25 days below the minimum age limit of 18 years.
Sharma, who had earlier directed Ameesha and Sunny in "Gadar: Ek Prem Katha", says Ameesha was never signed on for "Singh Saheb The Great".
"I never signed Ameesha Patel for the film. She was supposed to be a part of the film, but officially we never signed her. It was very much a media created news," said Sharma.
He said almost 70 percent of the film's shooting has been completed.
"We shot the film majorly in Bhopal where we created a huge set. Now we are back to Mumbai and the second schedule will go on floors from March 20 in Mumbai itself," he said.
