Mumbai: Ankita Srivastava, who will make her big Bollywood debut this year with Firoz Nadiadwala’s much anticipate sequel Welcome Back, is an ardent fan of Sridevi. So much so that the young talented actress has been christened Chandni in the multi-starrer, which is also the name of Sridevi’s 1989 eponymous movie.
The gorgeous actress Ankita impressed her movie director Anees Bazmee and producer Firoz Nadiadwala with the audition and she was later signed for Welcome Back.
Anees informs, “I was blown away by Ankita’s audition. She has seen Chandni innumerable times. That’s why Firoz bhai and I decided to name her character Chandni in Welcome Back.”
