Sasha Agha, daughter of yesteryears singer and actor Salma Agha, has been finalised by Aditya Chopra to act opposite Arjun Kapoor in Yash Raj Films upcoming film Aurangzeb, which is widely believed to be a tweaked remake of Yash Chopra’s Trishul (1978).
Aurangzeb is directed by Atul Sabharwal and the cast includes Rishi Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Prithviraj and Amrita Singh. Shooting of the film is in progress and it will release in the summer of 2013.
Sasha’s look is being kept under wraps, as is the usual practice with all YRF films. Her mother Salma made her debut with BR Chopra’s Nikaah (1982) and her song Dil Ke Armaan Aansuon Mein Beh Gaye from the film is considered as a cult classic. Sasha’s paternal and maternal grandmothers Nasreen and Anwar Begum and grandfather Jugal Kishore Mehra were also actors during the 1940s.
