When Majid Majidi all set to shoot his film ‘Beyond the Clouds’ for 23rd January, he expected, Kangana to join the shooting with him after 3 days.
The Iranian filmmaker had handed over the lead role to Kangana in the film, which revolves a film around an improvised brother-sister duo character. When the heroine and filmmaker sat down for their first meeting, Majid was almost immediately convinced that she was perfect for the role.
Reportedly, earlier Deepika Padukone had taken a look test that was held in Dhobi Ghat in Mumbai, which saw her sporting dark make-up and tattered clothes.
However, after narration, Kangana was fully prepared and the preparations began. Kangana started her workshop and her clothes were ready too. Till then, the director hadn’t shared the script with her. Only, the Tanu Weds Manu star knows about her track. Just, a few days ago, she has been down to send a bound script. Reading the script, the actress realized that the film has two protagonists, one is Ishaan Khattar, one who plays the role of brother and another one is she herself.
The actress thinks that this film is not the right fit for her presently, when she is at the top of her game in Bollywood. With this she met Majidi, at length and convinced him respectfully why she would like to opt out. The filmmaker understood and they both shake hands gracefully.
Majidi is again left out with a heroine.
As for now, Kangana, her next is Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon and that is followed by Hansal Mehta’s Simran and Ketan Mehta’s Rani Lakshmibai.
