Barun Sobti set to romance Suzanna Mukherjee in Kolkata

The newcomer's innocent smile prompted director Mitali Ghoshal to cast her opposite the TV heartthrob

The cat is out of the bag. BarunSobti fans, who have long been speculating who their fave hero would romance on the big screen, can now rest their case. Newcomer SuzannaMukherjee has bagged the role in MitaliGhoshal's 22 Yards. The girl will start shooting from August 20 in Kolkata. 

"She plays a Bengali girl, Shonali, who is a sports journalist. Though I auditioned a lot of girls, what struck me about Suzanna was her innocent smile," said Mitali.

Suzanna was earlier part of Bolly flick TutiyaDil and her projects on the small screen include Roadies, Roomie and Emotional Atyachaar. "Till the second round of the auditions, I didn't know about Barun. After hearing about him, I looked up the net and saw episodes of IssPyaarKoKyaNaamDoon? He came across as very good-looking. Also, everybody in my family watches TV and knew who he was. I met Barun for a few workshops in Mumbai and liked his work. As a person, he is very simple. Despite being so popular, he isn't fussy," she said.

Though born to a Bengali father and a Ukrainian mother, Suzanna is nervous about playing a Bengali girl. "The character is very different from what I am in real life," said Suzanna.
