Shahid Kapoor: Sonakshi, Shazahn, Narmada were not auditioned

Ever since it was announced that Shahid Kapoor would be working in his dad Pankaj Kapoor's debut directorial venture, there have been speculations galore around the leading lady of the film. While not many established names have made the rounds so far, grapevine had insisted that Shahid's girl in the film would be a new face.

This is how names like Shatrughan Sinha's daughter Sonakshi Sinha, Sharon Prabhakar's daughter Shazahn Padamsee and Govinda's daughter Narmada were being discussed in the industry circles. However, the star of KAMINEY and JAB WE MET laughs away the insinuations and clarifies once and for and all that none of the aforementioned names were ever auditioned. Not just that, Shahid Kapoor has also declared that the leading lady has already been finalized and her identity would be revealed to media 'very soon'.

Story of My Name is Khan

'My Name is Khan, and I am not a terrorist'--one line sure to be mouthed by you as you step out of the theatre. And mind you, there are many other priceless quotes.

My Name is Khan is unlike any other Karan Johar-directed film, although it has glimpses of his past work. It does not have masala, no mindless song and dance, and no comic fillers. It has a very strong main message, and several others tucked in. KJo has sure come a long way from candyfloss.

My Name is Khan begins with Rizwan looking over the President Bush's itinerary. He wants to meet Mr President and tell him, "My Name is Khan, and I am not a terrorist". Rizwan starts his journey to Washinton, D.C., but becomes a terror suspect in the beginning itself.
