There were a lot of speculations over the girl who is playing Juliet in the upcoming film, Issaq. The identity of the girl was kept under wraps for a long time.
She was guarded from the crowds and local media, even in Varanasi where the film was shot. Now, here’s a look at the young Amyra Dastur who will be making her debut opposite actor Prateik in the Romeo Juliet adaptation set in Varanasi. Amyra, born and brought up in Mumbai, was chosen after auditioning 400 girls across India.
The actor’s real name is Amy. But her name was changed to Amyra because of Prateik’s previous love interest by the same name. Also, the makers did not want any link-up controversies.
