Pahlaj Nihalani’s film titled I Love You Boss has been waiting in the wings for more than a decade. The film was also supposed to launch Kangana Ranaut in 2006, but was shelved when the actress signed Anurag Basu’s Gangster. The same project is now being revived with a new actress — Mishika Chowdhary who will make her debut in Nihalani’s Rangeela Raja ,on January 18. So impressed is Nihalani with his new discovery that he has decided to cast her in his dream project.
Revealing details Pahlaj says, “I Love You Boss is the subject closest to my heart. It was meant to be Kangana Ranaut’s launch film. We had finalised everything. We had even done a photo shoot and the media couldn’t stop talking about the new girl that I was launching. Then Kangana decided she preferred to be launched by Mahesh Bhatt and quit the film,” he explains.
Nihalani admits that he swore never to make that film again, if not with Kangana. He says, “I couldn’t imagine any other actress except Kangana in that role in I Love You Boss until now. When Mishika worked with me in Rangeela Raja, I realised I had finally found the girl to replace Kangana in my favourite subject. Let me make a prediction: Mishika will not only be a suitable replacement for Kagana, but she will also prove herself to be as good an actress as Kangana, if not more.”
