New Delhi:

Sanjana Sanghi, who awaits the release of Dil Bechara, which also stars late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, in her latest Instagram post revealed that she was spotted by the film's director Mukesh Chhabra when she was 13-year-old. Sanjana was spotted by the casting director during one of her performances in school. 10 years later, she stars as the lead actress in Mukesh Chhabra's forthcoming film, which also marks his Bollywood debut as a director. Sanjana wrote in her post: "At age 13, Mukesh found me performing on stage in my school in Delhi, asked me to audition then and there itself, and went on to cast me as Mandy in Rockstar. Many magical things happened during Rockstar, but one of the biggest was AR Rahman's Sir's music.

Sanjana added in her post, "If you'd have told me 10 years later he'd bless my debut film as a lead actor in Dil Bechara, which will be based on my favourite novel The Fault In Our Stars - with his music on our album and background score and Mukesh directing me? That would not even be a dream I'd have ever dared to dream." She shared the Dil Bechara title track, which has been sung and composed by AR Rahman, and wrote: "Thank you AR Rahman Sir, for this eternal blessing, this is an absolute honor. I've pinched myself a million times since I first performed to your tunes almost two years ago, yet it just doesn't sink in."

At age 13, Mukesh found me performing on stage in my school in Delhi, asked me to 'audition' then & there itself, and went on to cast me as "Mandy" in Rockstar. Many magical things happened during Rockstar, but one of the biggest was AR Rahman's Sir's music. If you'd have told me 10 years later he'd bless my debut film as a lead actor Dil Bechara, which will be based on my favourite novel The Fault in Our Stars - with HIS music on our album and background score AND Mukesh directing me? That would not even be a dream I'd have ever dared to dream. Thank you @arrahman sir, for this eternal blessing, this is an absolute honor. I've pinched myself a million times since I first performed to your tunes almost two years ago, yet it just doesn't sink in. Here's my greatest honor in presenting to you all, the FULL music album of Dil Bechara!
