On Wednesday, Pulkit Samrat shared a still from his new film Suswagatam Khushamadeed but with a twist – the picture showed him but did not reveal his co-star’s face; she is shown in the still from behind, hair cascading down her back and wearing a choli. “Goofy, fun and gorgeous! Can you guess who my co-star is,” Pulkit asked in his caption. Responses in the comments thread ranged from Kriti Kharbanda (also Pulkit’s girlfriend) to Kiara Advani. Turns out, nobody got it right. Pulkit’s mystery co-star is, drum roll, Isabelle Kaif, sister of actress Katrina.
