Director Punit Malhotra, who roped in Shraddha Kapoor to play South Indian character Vasudha in his forthcoming directorial venture "Gori Tere Pyaar Mein", says he wrote the character keeping her in mind.
"I met Shraddha after 'I Hate Luv Storys' at a theatre and something stayed with me. When I wrote the character of Vasudha, a nice south Indian girl, I only had Shraddha in mind. Trust me, I didn't go to anyone else," Malhotra said in an interview.
"First choice was Shraddha and this was even before 'Aashiqui 2'. I went to her. I gave her the subject and said, 'It's a very nice role. You will look really nice doing it.' And she kind of jumped at it," he added.
"That was a totally different script, the first draft of the film was different. But for some reason that didn't," he said.
In the film, Imran will be seen as a south Indian guy Sriram, who is madly in love with Dia (Kareena) a social worker, and is ready to do anything for her.
