Feb 13, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Rajkumar Gupta’s film, ‘No One Killed Jessica’, stars Rani Mukerji and Vidya Balan as a journalist and Sabrina Lal, Jessica’s sister, respectively. However, this has lead to a problem in casting a popular actress to play Jessica Lal, as her role is comparatively very small.
Since the director and the producers have no choice, they will have to settle on a newcomer for Jessica.
According to sources, actresses who had been approached for Jessica’s role backed off as soon as they found out that Vidya and Rani had the big roles.
Rajkumar Gupta, the director, however states that their reason for choosing a newcomer for Jessica is so that the audience feels the impact of the crime which will happen only if the girl is a new face.
