According to latest buzz, Sudhir Mishra has cast Anil Kapoor and Irrfan Khan for the lead roles in his upcoming film Mehrunnisa. Previously Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor were supposed to star in this love triangle based drama but they have been dropped due to date issues.
On the other hand Kangana Ranaut replaces Chitrangada Singh as the love interest of both Anil and Irrfan. Chitrangada was taking Urdu and Kathhak classes for this movie but apparently her efforts were not enough.
The story of this movie revolves around two middle aged men who were great friends once but got separated when they fell in love for the same girl. After a few decades, that girl again enters their lives and try to reconcile between the friends.
