Even before the promotions of Hate Story were underway, its rather bold poster had managed to set the tongues wagging. And with it, actress Paoli Dam became a household name. Now the buzz is that television actress Surveen Chawla has been finalised for the sequel of the film.
A source said, "There was buzz that Paoli would again be cast in the sequel. However, that is not the case. The makers have given a big break to Surveen who had done a Punjabi film with Jimmy Shergill some time ago."
The actress began her career with Ekta Kapoor's shows Kahin To Hoga and Kasauti Zindagi Ki.
Bhushan Kumar, who is producing the film with Vikram Bhatt, confirmed the buzz and added, "She is a popular face on TV and impressed us at the auditions."
