Anushka Sharma, a 19-year-old model from Bangalore, will play the female lead opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Aditya Chopra’s third film as director, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.

"We were looking for someone who could truly embody the spirit of small-town Punjab and we know we have found her in Anushka,” said Yash Chopra. “And while she has no previous acting experience, we have seen that unique spark in her that makes us confident that she will be a standout even opposite Shah Rukh."

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi will go on floors on May 16 and will hit theatres on December 12.
