For those who think they know which of the 12 Priyanka Chopras becomes Harman Baweja’s bride at the end of What's Your Raashee, here's a shocker.
Ashutosh Gowariker has changed the finale. Harman's character will walk away with a completely different girl than the one the hero of the novel chooses.
It took a while to convince novelist Madhu Rye, but Ashutosh finally convinced her that an identical ending would be a spoiler for those who have read the book.
Rye had also never imagined that all the 12 candidates would have the same face.
But Ashutosh had made up his mind. "If I had 12 different actresses playing the 12 brides-in-waiting, a star-hierarchy would've been created in the audiences' mind. And the one Harman would've married would've been considered 'the star' of the show,” he said. “I wanted all the 12 girls to be looked on with equal curiosity and interest by the audience. And for that I needed to take up the challenge of making one actress play all the 12 parts."
