GENELIA D'SOUZA and IMRAN KHAN
Director Sanjay Gadhvi's forthcoming film 7 DAYS IN PARIS, starring Imran Khan in the lead, which has been making headlines for quite sometime over finalizing a leading lady for the film, now, as per the latest reports, has finally penciled in the bubbly & vivacious actress of Bollywood Genelia D'Souza.
After Katrina Kaif walked out of the project, the makers were planning to rope in either Kareena Kapoor or Asin. But unfortunately, both the ladies politely refused to be its part. Reports even suggest that Bollywood's hot in-demand actress Priyanka Chopra was also approached, but the sultry siren, who is riding high on the success of FASHION, demanded a whopping amount of Rs. 5 crore, which didn't really go down well with the producers and hence they decided to cast Genelia.
It must be recalled that Genelia was Imran's co-star in his first movie, blockbuster JAANE TU YA JAANE NA and their pairing was well-admired by one and all. Now Sanjay should heave a sigh of relief as he's got the best pair of B-town!
