Ace costume designer Vikram Phadnis who of late designed costumes for Salaam-E-Ishq and Namastey London has finally zeroed down on the leading lady for his film.
Vikram who has been planning to start his directorial venture since a while was earlier planning to rope in Madhuri Dixit for his film. However, things didn't seem to work out between them. Vikram has therefore moved on and has now signed Tabu as the leading lady for his film.
Phadnis says that Tabu has been a good friend since a while. In fact, she always kept pushing him to direct a film. Besides, Vikram's is a heroine centric film and a highly emotional subject and looking at Tabu's potential to handle such subjects, she is surely a great choice.
Vikram says that Tabu fits in the script that he has and she agreed to do the film within ten secs of narration.
