As reported by��BizAsia earlier this year, Anushka Sharma has allegedly replaced Abhay Deol as producer for Navdeep Singh’s upcoming film, ‘Cannada’. The director is hoping to convince Sharma to also step in��as lead actress for the film, which will apparently be co-produced by Aanand L Rai.
Speaking to��Absolute India, Singh said, “I have showed the script to Anushka as there is a strong female character in the film and I would like her to be part of it ��She has yet to decide on that.”
The “gangster drama”��centers around a Punjabi family and will be set in Canada.
Justifying the extra ‘n’ in the spelling of ‘Cannada’, the director explains it is “just the way we speak in Punjabi style.”
It can be noted that Singh and Sharma had first joint hands for ‘NH10’ (2015), which was also Sharma’s maiden production.
