Casting for JASHNN came with its own trouble, when the film was being put together a year back. While Adhyayan Suman was a straight choice, it wasn't easy finding a female lead. As per co-director Raksha Mistry, it was a 'terrible' experience to find the right girl for the film.
''We had approached a lot of heroines. Prachi and Sonal were considered, but they couldn't do the film for various reasons. In fact at one point of time, we really became tired of finding the perfect girl for the role,'' remembers Raksha.
Talking about Anjana's inclusion in the film, she reveals, ''Anjana actually came into the movie out of the blue. She loved the narration and was game for playing the role of a girl who supports her boyfriend to the hilt, and comes with a mind of her own. We clicked some photographs of Adhyayan and Anjana together and they looked good. We took them to Mukeshji and he immediately said that she was on.''
As per the makers, Anjana has an author backed role of Sara, a girl who is full of spunk, wears a don't-care attitude on her sleeve and easily makes Akash fall in love.
