India’s film ‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ featuring Pakistan’s actress Mawara Hocane completed its five years yesterday.
On the eve of the fifth anniversary, the makers of the film, Vinay Sapru and Radhika Rao, applauded Mawra who made her Bollywood debut with this project. The Indian writer-director duo shared that it was a tough call to cast a Muslim girl for Telugu Brahmin girl’s role but Mawra did it quite fantastically.
“While casting, we had options to cast existing stars but we thought that the feel of a tragic tale of love can only come from people who are absolutely new and fresh. It was really great seeing a Muslim girl like Mawra Hocane playing the character of a Brahmin girl. She had no idea about the culture of the character and yet, she got into the skin of it,” the makers told Indo-Asian News Service (IANS).
Mawra was highly recognized for her role in Sanam Teri Kasam which was his debut and last film in Bollywood.
