Though any leading lady can be expected to be a little apprehensive about the prospects of working with a newcomer male lead, Anushka wasn't overtly bothered because she trusted her producer and mentor Aditya Chopra to have made the right choice.
"Adi (Aditya Chopra) and director Maneesh (Sharma) spent quite some time in getting the right face for the film. BAND BAAJA BAARAAT required a boy who could make the character of Bittoo Sharma believable. He had to not just look real but also be a very strong actor. When Ranveer was chosen for the role and I was informed about it, I knew that he would be the perfect fit. After all I trust Adi way too much on such matters", says Anushka. However, Anushka made sure that she didn't get worked out by thinking about such matters during the making of the film and now its promotion.
"Really, I don't have in-depth knowledge about such things", confesses Anushka, "I am not well versed about the business aspects of film making. All I know is how to act and choose the best amongst the scripts that come to me. I know for sure that people want to see good films which come with a fresh subject."
BAND BAAJA BAARAAT releases all over on 10th December.
