This is the most shocking disclosure about Himesh's upcoming film Aap Ka Surroor. The lead actress opposite Himesh in the film is none other than child artiste Hansika Motwani. Hansika is the same girl who was seen in the film Jaago starring Raveena Tandon and Manoj Bajpai, where Hansika played a 10 yr old girl who gets raped in train. She was also child artiste in films like Hum Kaun Hai, Hawa and Escape From Taliban. She was also seen in the famous television soap, Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. However, her most notable film is Hrithik Roshan starrer Koi Mil Gaya in which Hansika played one of the kids from the super-six group. Her last film as a child artiste was Dheeraj Kumar's Aabra Ka Daabra which came out in December 2004.
Within a span of just two years, Hansika made her comeback in films but as a lead actress. Early this year, she made her debut in a Telugu film Desamuduru. And now, Hansika will soon make her Bollywood debut with Himesh Reshammiya in Aap Ka Surroor. She is however publicized as a debutant actress named Ria. Now, why would they try to hide her identity? In fact, even in the publicity stills of the film, all the pictures having Hansika are kept to minimum resolution, which makes it difficult to recognize her. But our source confirms, "Yes, Ria is Hansika Motwani. She plays the lead actress in the film."
