Jhalli’s Audition Miracle: From ‘Prank’ to Powerhouse Role in Shah Rukh’s Super-Women Squad!

Aaliyah Qureishi, a singer-actress better known by her stage as Jhalli, recently made an appearance as one of the six ladies in Shah Rukh’s super-powerful women squad in Jawan. The actress discussed being cast in the movie in an interview with India Today. At first, she assumed her inclusion in the movie was a “prank.”

Aaliyah spoke with India Today about how she got the role, “I landed the role two years ago, in 2021 when I auditioned with Mukesh Chhabra casting. Around this time, I was really looking for work because I hadn’t auditioned for anything in a couple of months. I called up all the casting agents whose numbers I had. I spammed them. I was like ‘hi do you have any auditions that I can test for?’ So, a guy from Mukesh Chhabra’s office said ‘yeah there’s one Red Chillies film, it has six girls and you would be auditioning and it’s with a South director, Atlee.”

She added further, “So I was excited, but I try not to get excited about auditions before getting them. I knew it was going to be a really hard process and so many people were competing for the same role. So I went in, I tested. It was a scene that Atlee sir had written for the movie. I didn’t think anything of it, I went home and a few days later I got a call from Mukesh Chhabra Casting saying that the director wanted to meet me.”
