Ram Gopal Varma has just finished shooting for his latest film titled Nishabd starring Amitabh Bachchan, Revathy, Rukhsar and Aftab Shivdasani. He was on the lookout for a leading lady and the cat is now out of the bag. The new lady in the RGV camp is 18 year old Jiah Khan.
Jiah who one might ask? She is the same actress who was to make her debut in Anurag Gangster Basu's Tumsa Nahin Dekha but the director opted for Dia Mirza claiming that Jiah and her mother (small time yesteryear actress Rabiya) would throw lots of tantrums on the sets. Ramu apparently got introduced to her by a builder but that time she was committed to TND. So it was only after a long time did RGV finally get to sign her.
The film is said to be based on Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita and will have a September release. However Ramu claims that the whole story was conceptualized and written by him.
