Saif Ali Khan has finally got the female lead for his next home production. The lucky girl in question is model and Tamil actress Divya Parmeshwar, who will star in the untitled production that will also mark the launch of Armaan Jain. Armaan is Kareena Kapoor's cousin.
A source said, "It has been a long search for the team and hundreds of girls were considered. There was too much back and forth when someone suggested Divya's name."
Down South, Divya Parmeshwar has acted in Ponnar Shankar and is known to juggle her film commitments with her modelling assignments.
"Her name has been kept under wraps and will be announced soon. The makers wanted to cast a new girl opposite Armaan," the source added.
Saif Ali Khan remained unavailable for comment.
