Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming movie ‘Fan’ has been in news lately for the question over its leading lady still prevails. But now it’s being reported that the makers have finally zeroed in on a new face to be cast opposite the superstar.
According to a report published in Hindustan Times, supermodel Waluscha De Sousa has been finalised for the role. “‘Fan’ is not a regular flick that has quintessential roles for a hero and heroine.
The casting process of the film has been unusual. They’ve picked Waluscha, who is not from the industry, as the leading lady. She was a prominent supermodel after participating in a beauty pageant in 2000, but she took a break after marrying fashion choreographer Marc Robinson. Now, they have separated,” says a source.
