''Chitrangda Singh was my original choice'' says Arsala Qureishi & Sabrina Louis whose debut movie THE UNFORGETTABLE, which is all set for release on the 11th of September 2009, were keen to cast the sensational Chitrangda Singh for the main lead.
They did reach out to her as well, but Chitrangda who had withdrawn into matrimony and parenthood wasn't keen on cinema at that point in time. Dejected by this Arsala and Sabrina moved to foreign shores and opted for the stunning Sofia Hayat. Sofia who has just had her autobiography released by Amazon was more than happy to slide into the role.
As things turned out, Arsala had to make some changes to suit Sofia's persona and had to also make it explicit sexually to lend strength to the characters. But obvious that had she cast Chitrangda, Arsala's script and story would not have the hot scenes which are integral to the storyline today.
THE UNFORGETTABLE is an unusual passionate love story that depicts the stark contrasts in individualistic beliefs interwoven in a web of romance, mystery, travesty and triumph. The passion is in an aesthetic and mature manner. The thought provoking concept and aesthetic cinematography by W.B. Rao has lent an incredible sensuality to the love story.
