Who are Ehan Bhat and Edilsy Vargas? Meet the cast of A.R Rahman's 99 Songs!

The writer and producer in AR Rahman has finally resulted in the release of the much awaited 99 Songs.

The script for the movie had reportedly been written back in 2011, and when Rahman established his production label in 2013, the film was in the works. The movie is supposedly following the flow of a musical, and given the Oscar winning composer's background, it isn't surprising. What's actually surprising are the fresh faces leading the cast. The lead actors Ehan Bhat and Edilsy Vargas are both newcomers and next to nothing is known about them.

So who are they?

Ehan Bhat hails from Kashmir and comes from a family of doctors and engineers. He has absolutely no background in Bollywood. While 99 Songs marks his film debut, the actor has appeared in a short film by Imtiaz Ali in the past. What's more, he's featured in the video for the song Chhor Denge alongside Nora Fatehi. Edilsy Vargas, meanwhile, is a Latina model and actress from Dominican Republic. She landed the role after auditioning amongst 600 candidates. Her debut in 99 Songs makes her the first Latina to star in a multi-language Indian film!
