The 31-year-old diva shared that she would cast Kangana Ranaut in the adaptation of Confessions of a shopaholic.

"She's one of my favorite actresses. I would say me but again, I would say Kangana Ranaut," she said.

She further dished out about her choices in the Bollywood version of Devil Wears Prada saying, "Obviously for Meryl Streep's character, I would say Shabana Azmi because she is so brilliant."

"For Anne Hathaway's character, I would say Shraddha Kapoor. Anne Hathaway has this vibe which Shraddha has I feel. She's cute, that's what Anne Hathaway is," she added.

Do you agree with her choices?

Owais U. | 4 years ago | Reply The movie made box office money, although a flop in the US market - meager 4.1/10 per IMDB ratings. The movie grossed higher than anticipated due to fans of the novel frolicking to the theater just to see how they adapted the sadomasochism into an R rated movie. What does Bollywood get out of this adaptation? Box office money, or teasing the audience of the raunchy sex the movie will be teased with? Like seriously, India already has its share of rape issues, lets not indulge into creating a pandemonium by increasing those rate.
