Kriti Sanon turned into a star overnight with her successful debut opposite Tiger Shroff in Sajid Nadiadwala۪s Heropanti۪. The young actress has a number of offers to choose from now and if all goes well, she will be seen in Prabhu Deva۪s Singh Is Bling۪, for which Akshay Kumar has apparently suggested her name.
It is a love story and Kriti plays a dancer in the film_ It is a very different film and required a different heroine. Akshay saw Heropanti۪ and liked Kriti. And it was he who suggested she۪d be apt for the part, a source told Mumbai Mirror.
News is doing the rounds that this is the first script where Prabhu Deva has written an equally strong role for the heroine, as for the hero. Senior actresses like Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor Khan were also apparently considered for this role, which has now fallen in Sanon۪s kitty.
An official announcement is expected soon.
