If buzz in the town is to be believed, HEROPANTI girl Kriti Sanon and BESHARAM heroine Pallavi Sharda were also spoken to when AMIT SAHNI KI LIST was being put together. The film featuring Vir Das in the title role needed someone really glamorous to pitch in for the part of a leading lady and Kriti as well as Pallavi seemed like just the right choices.

However, it was eventually Anindita Nayar for whom things went well in place and she found herself in the hot seat as the girl who eventually got all the ticks against the ‘list’. Pun intended!
‘Well yes, Anindita plays the list waali ladki; a perfect girl,’ says Tina Nagpaul, one of the three producers of the light hearted affair, ‘It was a very difficult process to find the right girl. We must have auditioned 100 odd girls. We spoke to a lot of actresses, including Kriti and Pallavi. We also met a lot of fresh actresses. However, it was Anindita who made the final cut.’
Apparently, one of the common friends recommended her name and the newcomer charmed the producers in the initial meetings itself.
‘Anindita is playing this young woman who is an investment banker. Now the actress had to play and sound like one due to the characterization, which was that of a confident, smart and sexy woman. It was a tough combination as we needed someone with just the right poise, confidence, attitude and looks. After we auditioned Anindita, we felt that she was best suited for the role,’ says Tina, ‘She is indeed one of the girls who is a trendsetter and is extremely sexy. She ups the glam quotient really well.’
We would look forward to that once AMIT SAHNI KI LIST, which is produced by Tina Nagpaul, Kavita Kulkarni and Sujata Vemuri, releases all over on 18th April, 2014.
