Model Waluscha De Sousa has been roped in to play the female lead opposite Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Fan’, a Maneesh Sharma-directed film. She has been shortlisted from other prospects like Ileana D’Cruz and Parineeti Chopra. According to reports, the casting process has been slightly quirky and they wanted someone who is totally from a modeling world and has nothing to do with films. They zeroed in on Waluscha who was a super model in the early 2000s. The 5 feet 9 inch beauty had won a beauty pageant and was flooded with modeling offers.
Waluscha took a break from modeling to marry Marc Robinson (14 years older than her), model and fashion choreographer. The two are separated now. She gave birth to her daughter Chanel in 2002.
Waluscha filed for divorce in 2013 from her husband due to his partying ways with younger models according to a leading daily. Waluscha met her husband Marc in 1998. Interestingly, she had done an advertisement with Shah Rukh Khan for Pepsi in that year. But she decided to flip her career for marriage after Marc proposed her. This is his second divorce after model Coleen Khan.
Waluscha De Sousa is now 33 years old and is happy to live life on her own terms, one of her blessings being a movie with Shah Rukh Khan.
