'Kaanchi' Lead Actress Misthi's Real Name Is Indrani Chakraborty

Bollywood filmmaker Subash Ghai, who is said to have a special affinity for the letter 'M' has done it again, it seems. A few days back, there were reports that Ghai had signed up a fresh face as the female lead for his upcoming film Kaanchi and that the lucky lady in question was a Bengali girl named Mishti.


However, it now seems that the actress' real name is Indrani Chakraborty and that she is not a fresh face, as claimed by Ghai. Sources claim that Indrani, a Bengali starlet, is a part of a Bengali project, where her co-stars are Prosenjit Chatterjee and Joey Debroy. Actor Kartik Tiwari, who was last seen in Luv Ranjan's AkaashVani, is said to be roped in to play the male lead opposite Indrani in Kaanchi.


Kaanchi is reportedly the story of a young woman from Uttarakhand, whose life changes after her father, an ex-army man gets shot down, compelling her to take matters in her own hand.
