Supermodel Waluscha De Sousa is the latest name doing the rounds that is likely to be paired opposite Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Fan’.
From Parineeti Chopra to Ileana D’Cruz, names of numerous actresses have been considered for the lead opposite Khan but now reports suggest that��De Sousa has been zeroed for the role.
A source told NDTV, “It’s not a regular flick that has quintessential roles for a hero and heroine. The casting process of the film has been unusual. They’ve picked Waluscha, who is not from the industry, as the leading lady.”
“Waluscha took special training in acting for this film. She has already started shooting with Shah Rukh in south Mumbai and at an Andheri studio,” added source.
De Sousa participated in a beauty pageant in 2000. She was a prominent supermodel but she took a break after marrying fashion choreographer Marc Robinson. However, now they have reportedly separated.
