Jennifer Winget gets back to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saraswatichandra?
Sanjay Leela Bhansaliís Saraswatichandra, based on the popular novel for Star Plus has been in the news for a while now, with the channel and production house looking for a suitable face to play the female lead, after Jennifer Winget opted out of it due to differences in the contractual clauses.
Post this, many big names like Barkha Bisht, Shraddha Nigam, Sanjeeda Sheikh and even Sanaya Irani, for the matter of fact, were offered the roles. However, the latest is that the channel could not get the face they wanted, and has gone back to Jennifer yet again.
Our reliable source informs us that the production house, channel and Jennifer have had extensive talks after which they have apparently sorted out contractual differences. Jennifer is most likely to get in as the female lead of Saraswatichandra.
We tried calling Jennifer and even sent a text message, but did not get any revert till the time we filed our story.
The unit has already shot an initial chunk of the story line in Dubai post which the shoot in Mumbai with the male lead Gautam Rode has started. We hear that with Jennifer due to sign her contract papers very soon, the regular shoot for the show in the multi-storey huge set erected in Mumbai will begin from the second week of January 2013. Saraswatichandra is scheduled to launch at a prime time slot in February 2013.
