Actress Puja Gupta has been confirmed to play the female lead in upcoming film ‘SNAFU’. She will be seen opposite Abhay Deol in the film. Gupta earlier worked in ‘F.A.L.T.U.’ (2011) and ‘Go Goa Gone’ (2013) director Sethu Sriram says he decided upon her after a lot of deliberation but she fit the role perfectly.
‘SNAFU’ will present Gupta in as Aaniya, an ambitious corporate high flyer who hails from a small town and moved to the city of dreams to pursue her career. Sriram told NDTV, “This role is very critical to the storyline and the girl had to be much more than singing, dancing and looking good. After a lot of deliberation we decided upon Puja,”
“Aaniya is an ambitious small town girl so we needed the vulnerability of a small town girl along with high glamour quotient and who would be a head turner. I auditioned a lot of promising fresh faces and a few upcoming names, some of them were brilliant but Puja fits the bill naturally,” he added.
Sriram also thanked Deol who helped him in streamlining the process. The film is now on the floors.
