Preity said: 'The problem is we need a little girl who not only resembles me but also has prominent dimples, and not just on one cheek. We've come across sweet little girls with one dimple. But since God has gifted me with dimples on both cheeks the hunt is on for a miniature Preity with the necessary holes in her cheeks.'
Until the director finds the right face the shooting of the childhood portions is on hold. One option was Ayesha Kapoor from 'Black'.
'My God what a powerhouse performer! She played the blind girl so convincingly. I've worked with the blind and I've seen them move their cornea exactly like Ayesha. But Ayesha's image after 'Black' is too strong. What do we do? I really envy Manisha Koirala. In 'Khamoshi: The Musical' Sanjay Leela Bhansali found a girl who was not only a pint-sized replica of Manisha but also as talented,' the actress said.
