Mumbai, July 29 -- Director Milan Luthria is currently working on his next film that stars Ajay Devgn, and has two leading ladies.

While Shruti Haasan is already on board, the makers are yet to zero in on the second leading lady. Now sources reveal that the actress will get a complete makeover for her role.

Milan says, "I was looking for a fresh pair, and I felt there is an abundance of talent and glamour in Shruti. Both these aspects of her personality have been successfully exploited in the south, where she is doing big-budget films. I like working with actresses who haven't really been given their due, but have heaps of potential."

The film-maker is known to give his actors a makeover - be it Vidya Balan in The Dirty Picture (2011), or Ajay Devgn in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai (2010). He is now working with Shruti on her look tests, and helping her with workshops to get under the skin of her character.

"In the limited work Shruti has done in Bollywood, she has achieved critical acclaim in films like D-Day (2013), and commercial success in films like Gabbar Is Back. But I instinctively feel that there's a lot more to explore and discover in her," he says.

While the filmmaker chooses to maintain silence on the actor's role, he feels that the work Shruti and he are planning to do together in preparation [for her part] as well as on the sets "will show her in a different light". "She has this tremendous aura around her, which, if caught right on screen, will surprise many," he says.
