Salman picks Karishma over Sana
New Delhi: 'Bigg Boss 6' contestant Karishma Kotak has finally bagged the jackpot leaving behind Sana Khan. The actress has been signed in for Sohail Khan's upcoming film, 'Mental.'
Earlier, 'Bigg Boss 6' contestant Sana Khan, who was considered rather close to the show’s host and actor Salman Khan, was being considered for the project, according to reports.
While Salman was shooting for the sixth season of the reality TV show, he even said, “Sana has great potential and she will get many offers after coming out from Bigg Boss 6.” His statement had then sparked rumours of Sana grabbing the lucrative deal.
But, putting all rumours to rest, Karishma will now be seen opposite Salman in the film.
According to a close source, Salman had a key role to play in Karishma's selection. "Salman has had a good equation with Kotak ever since he shot a TV commercial with her last year. In fact, he also advocated for her inclusion in 'Bigg Boss 6'. He believes the model can deliver a strong performance on screen."
Earlier, 'Cocktail' girl Diana Penty's name was also doing the rounds.
A source informs, "Salman has no issues with Penty, who definitely was one of the main contenders for the role. It was just that both Salman and Sohail were keen on casting a new face."
Clearly, Sana’s loss is Karishma’s gain.
