Needless to say, Sargun Mehta had nailed the role but what if we tell you her not being the first choice for the movie?
Yes, you may find it a little difficult to register but let us tell you initially the film was supposed to mark the Punjabi debut for the Telugu and Tamil actress Kajal Aggarwal but due to clash in filming schedules she could not join the film.
