Ever since the trailer of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga has been released online, Sonam Kapoor has been receiving praise for taking a role of a lesbian in a mainstream Bollywood film. But do you know who will be playing Sonam's girlfriend in the film?

If the report in Bollywood Life is to be believed, popular South Indian actress Regina Cassandra will be playing Sonam's love interest named Kuku in the film. However, an official confirmation from the makers is awaited.

Regina has a blink-and-miss appearance in the movie's trailer where she along with Sonam are seen sitting besides each other by the poolside enjoying an impromptu music performance amid wedding festivities. She will be making her Bollywood debut with this film.

Earlier, she has been a part of 2018 Telugu film Awe, which dealt with homosexual relationships and sex reassignment surgery, where she played the role of Meera, a drug addict waitress, who tries to loot a rich man with the help of her boyfriend.

It was being said that director Shelly Chopra Dhar was unaware of Regina's body of work down south and was asked to give a couple of auditions before getting finalised for the project. Later, when Shelly got to know about Regina's filmography, she was quite impressed with her.

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga also stars Rajkummar Rao, Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Abhishek Duhan, Seema Pahwa, Madhumalti and Brijendra Kala in prominent roles. The movie will be releasing on February 1, 2019.
