Kubra Khan Of Namaloom Afraad To Star In Bollywood Film ‘Welcome To Karachi’
Another Pakistani star is set to work in Bollywood – it’s none other than the bank manager who saves the day in ‘Na Maloom Afraad’ , the ravishing Kubra Khan.
Previously, the filmmaker Vashu Bhagnani had plans of casting the Kick helmer Nargis Fakhri, however, things couldn’t work out with her for some reason. It was then that Bhagnani started auditions for the female lead of the movie in London and came across Pakistani Kubra Khan (originally called Rabia), who isn’t only beautiful but according to the filmmaker also had command over Hindi, Urdu and English.
The actress is happy about making it to Bollywood. She told Instep about her character.
“I am playing the main lead in the film; a strict, firm woman who works for the government.”
Khan said that she is clueless about it albeit happy.
“I have no idea how the makers got hold of me but it just happened. I didn’t have to go through a casting process either and it’s just been a great opportunity.”
We are certainly delighted to hear another of our star working as a main lead in a Bollywood movie, but Irfan Khan who was earlier playing the male lead role along with Arshad Warsi had reservations with Khan being cast for the movie, as reported by Times of India.
The actor was apparently growing desperate to work opposite Fakhri but since, that couldn’t happen he decided to call quits and disassociated himself with the movie. Irfan has been replaced by the filmmaker’s son Jaccky Bhagnani (Youngistaan).
