“I was not considering Kangana at all for this film (‘Kites’) because she has done big and meaty roles. I couldn’t tell her that ‘Kangana you are my lucky mascot, please do this film’,” Basu told IANS.
Kangana, however, didn’t have any apprehension in doing a cameo in the film that stars Hrithik Roshan and Mexican actress Barbara Mori.
“I was the one who gave her a break (in ‘Gangster – A Love Story’) and she is a very good friend of mine. She knew the length of the role and she still wanted to be a part of the film. Her role is like a guest appearance and that is what has also been credited for her in the film,” he added.
The film hits the screens May 21.
