Minissha Lamba is the newest addition to the cast of Joker. With her inclusion, the principal star cast of this Shirish Kunder directed film is complete. Joker now stars Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Shreyas Talpade and Minissha Lamba.
Confirms Shirish, Minissha has been signed for the film. She would be playing a lead opposite Shreyas Talpade.
There was some deliberation that happened before Minissha came on board. While Akshay had been confirmed in the middle of last year itself, Sonakshi‘s name cropped up around the release of Tees Maar Khan. Early this year, Shreyas came on board and now Minissha has stepped in as well.
On asked to state the reason behind Minissha being the chosen one, Shirish said, I wanted someone who looks sweet and innocent. There had to be purity about her face and body language and this is what I got in Minissha.
Though Sonakshi is the lead opposite Akshay in the film, Shirish says that Minissha‘s character adds value to the film’s plot as well.
