Actress Manjari Fadnis got a dream debut opposite Imran Khan in the Aamir Khan produced JAANE TU YA JAANE NA, but we hear that her connection with Aamir doesn't end there.
The story goes that Aamir was quite impressed with her short but impactful role that he recommended her to good friend Satyajit Bhatkal (LAGAAN production team member) for his debut film, Disney's ZOKKOMON!
Satyajit Bhatkal, who is the author of "Spirit of Lagaan" and National Award winning director of short film "Chale Chalo" produced by Aamir Khan, was hunting around for a female lead for his Bollywood debut, when Aamir happened to tell him about Manjari!
The pretty actress plays the lead in Satyajit's debut action adventure film with Darsheel Safary and Anupam Kher.
Also what is uncanny is that Manjari's character in ZOKKOMON, where she plays a mentor and guide to an orphaned Darsheel and helps him in his journey, is very similar to Aamir's role in TAARE ZAMEEN PAR....
With a recommendation from Aamir Khan himself and a good buzz generating around ZOKKOMON's trailers on channels, looks like Manjari Fadnis is definitely an actress to watch out for!
