Were it not for Samrat Prithviraj, former beauty queen Manushi Chillar would have made her debut with Aamir Khan in Laal Singh Chaddha. Whether that would have been a better prospect remains to be seen.
Sources say, Manushi was Aamir’s first choice to play his wife in Laal Singh Chaddha. But Manushi had already signed a contract with Yash Raj Films. At that point of time being launched in a big epic Yash Raj Film seemed like a dream start for any newcomer. Without much ado she declined the offer.
There were apparently quite a number of promising offers for Ms Chillar before Samrat Prithviraj released.
Now after the debacle of Samrat Prithviraj the offers have dwindled considerably. Her only new project is a film titled Tehran with John Abraham being directed by debutant Arun Gopalan.
