Pashmina Got Ishq Vishq Rebound On Merit, Makers Didn’t Know She Is Hrithik’s Cousin

I had worked extensively with her father Rajesh Roshan, but he never called, asking me to consider her: Ramesh Taurani

Shahid Kapoor, Amrita Rao and Shenaz Treasurywala starred in Ishq Vishk which released in 2003 was a big hit as it was loved a lot by the audiences, especially by the youngsters. The producer of the movie, Ramesh Taurani is now working on the remake of the movie and it has been titled as Ishq Vishk Rebound. 

While the original movie was directed by Ken Ghosh, the remake will be directed by Nipun Dharmadhikari and it will star Rohit Saraf, Pashmina Roshan, Jibraan Khan and Naila Grrewal in important roles. 

Pashmina Roshan the actress who is playing one of the lead roles in the movie belongs to a filmy family as she is daughter of composer Rajesh Roshan and cousin of Hrithik Roshan. However, the makers have cleared that she hasn’t got the role because of nepotism but purely on the basis of her talent as the makers had no idea about her family background. 

The producer of the movie Ramesh Taurani said in an interview, “We had no idea who she was. Pashmina was one of the 15 girls we shortlisted, we had no idea who she was. When we started doing her contracts, we found out she was a Roshan. I had worked extensively with her father Rajesh Roshan, but he never called, asking me to consider her.”

He further added, “Neither did Hrithik, who has a rapport with me. Merit matters more than anything in this industry, whether you’re an outsider or a nepo kid. If you see from the ’80s to now, there are some actors who haven’t succeeded despite their lineage. With the original Ishq Vishk, we launched Shahid, Amrita Rao and Shenaz Treasurywala. Shahid is a superstar today! Shenaz was also flooded with offers after the film. We are keen to do more movies with these kids too.”
