Muzaffar Ali is looking for an innocent face for the theatrical adaptation of Umrao Jaan. In Jaipur for Raqs-e-Bismil, an event on Sufism, Muzaffar said it was the portrayal of Umrao Jaan by Rekha which is etched still on hearts of the people. Umrao Jaan is still alive because of Rekha. To replace Rekha in the theatrical adaptation, Muzaffar is looking for a 16-year-old innocent girl with the vulnerabilities of Rekha. He said two and a half hour will have same dialogues, music, story but the presentation will be different.
He has already launched the hunt for such girl and very soon he is going to make an announcement about it.
