In ‘Guzaarish’

An unusual and painfully sad love story is what we can expect from director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next film Guzaarish, starring Hrithik Roshan as a wheelchair bound paraplegic patient and Aishwarya Rai as his nurse.

The lesser-known fact is that there is another love interest of Hrithik in the film. Without any hoo-ha, Bhansali has signed up Bengali model Monikangana Dutta to essay the character of Hrithik’s former lover.

Interestingly, Aishwarya’s character in the film is a married woman. Newcomer Aditya Roy Kapoor plays her husband.

So even though she is married, Ash gets attracted to the poetically philosophical paraplegic, played by Hrithik, who wants to put an end to his misery by ending his life. The film deals with the issue of euthanasia from a humane perspective.

Bhansali admits to have signed Monikangana for a “pivotal role” in the film. However, the length of her role won’t be very long.
