Kahaani lead star continues to be a mystery, as now Nayantara's name has started doing rounds. A few weeks ago, it was said that Anushka Shetty was in the race and the actress also expressed her wish to do Vidya Balan's act in the South Indian versions. However, the makers of the film are yet to zero in on the female lead and they are considering both the names.
According to a leading daily, the movie bosses are considering all the best possibilities to rope in an A-list actor for the role famously made by Vidya Balan. As far as director is concerned, Lingusamy, Selva and Chakri Toleti are in the race. There are also chances of original director Sujoy Ghosh helming the Tamil-Telugu versions. Nonetheless, nothing has been confirmed yet.
Endemol India, which has produced several Hindi TV reality shows, is entering films by producing the Kahaani remake. The shooting of the film begins in September and it will hit the screens in January 2013. Interestingly, Vidya Balan is doing a cameo in the movie, which revolves around a pregnant NRI woman's relentless search for her missing husband.
