Shahid Kapoor’s mother, Neelima Azim’s has finally found a producer for her directorial venture – Paul Mukul Taneja, who is based in London.

Interestingly, it’s Shahid’s Kaminey co-star, Chandan Sanyal and not Shahid who will play the lead. What’s even more interesting is that Neelima has cast Shahid’s ex-girlfriend Bhavna Pani opposite Sanyal. Shahid and Bhavna went to the same college and were more than good friends for nearly two years.

A source says, “Neelima was impressed by Sanyal’s histrionics in Kaminey. As for Bhavna, she treats her like her own daughter and thinks she is a good actress.”

Ustad Raza Ali Khan, grandson of music maestro Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, will compose the music.

Talking about her role, Bhavna says, “I play a playful nautanki dancer. I am very happy that I am doing this film.”

Neelima says, “Bhavna is a terrific dancer. However, I will need one more hero and heroine, who I will cast very soon.”

Neelima will play Chandan’s mother.
