Friday, September 01, 2006 Don is quite easily Ishaa Koppikar's biggest release to date. Of all the characters, hers [Anita] will be the interesting one to look out for, especially because it did not feature in the original. According to sources, Ishaa had been considered by Farhan [Akhtar] for Sonali Kulkarni's role in Dil Chahta Hai. Unfortunately, she could not allot dates to Farhan on that occasion.
While casting for Don, when Farhan was on the look-out for a suitable actress to play Anita, he thought of Ishaa again and offered her the part. Needless to add, Ishaa lapped up the offer! Who wouldn't like to be seated alongside the King Khan with a champagne glass in hand?!
