Dil Bechara actor Sanjana Sanghi recalls the time Mukesh Chhabra found her a role in Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar

Sanjana Sanghi is currently anticipating the release of her film Dil Bechara. The actress plays a high school teenager in the film who has cancer. Sanjana stars opposite late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The actor has now taken to social media to thank casting director Mukesh Chhabra for spotting her at a young age.

 
She wrote, “At age 13, Mukesh found me performing on stage in my school in Delhi, asked me to 'audition' then and there itself, and went on to cast me as 'Mandy' in Rockstar. Many magical things happened during Rockstar, but one of the biggest was A R Rahman Sir's music."
 
"If you'd have told me 10 years later he'd bless my debut film as a lead actor Dil Bechara, would be based on my favorite novel The Fault in Our Stars - with his music on our album and background score with Mukesh directing me? That would not even be a dream I'd have ever dared to dream,” she added.
 
In the same post, Sanjana also said that this is the first film stars her as a lead where A.R. Rahman has given the music. The legendary composer also provided music in Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar.
 
Sanjana concluded writing, “Thank you @arrahman sir, for this eternal blessing, this is an absolute honor. I've pinched myself a million times since I first performed to your tunes almost two years ago, yet it just doesn't sink in.”
 
Sanjana previously urged Sushant’s fans to use this time to celebrate his life journey and his films.

At age 13, Mukesh found me performing on stage in my school in Delhi, asked me to ‘audition’ then & there itself, and went on to cast me as “Mandy” in Rockstar. Many magical things happened during Rockstar, but one of the biggest was AR Rahman’s Sir’s music. If you’d have told me 10 years later he’d bless my debut film as a lead actor Dil Bechara, which will be based on my favourite novel The Fault in Our Stars - with HIS music on our album and background score.? That would not even be a dream I’d have ever dared to dream. Thank you @arrahman sir, for this eternal blessing, this is an absolute honor. I’ve pinched myself a million times since I first performed to your tunes almost two years ago, yet it just doesn’t sink in. Here’s my greatest honor in presenting to you all, the FULL music album of Dil Bechara!
