The rumour that Manushi Chhillar will be making her Bollywood debut has been doing the rounds for a while now. Earlier, buzz was that Chhillar will sign her debut film opposite Ranveer Singh, but the truth is far from that. Our sources now tell us that the former Miss World is the new YRF girl and will be Akshay Kumar’s leading lady in a Yash Raj Films production. Apparently, Manushi will play Sanyukta to AK’s Prithiviraj Chauhan in the mega-budget extravaganza, which will be helmed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi. A source tells a leading daily, “Everything is being kept hush-hush for now and the announcement will be made at the right time. Presently, Manushi is undergoing all the necessary training for her debut.”
Chhillar was also offered to debut in Ahan Shetty’s debut, the Hindi remake of RX100, but she turned that down. “However, Manushi felt that venturing into Bollywood with another newcomer would be too much of a pressure. She felt making her debut opposite an established star would be a better bet,” adds another source.
