The director-turned-actor Farhan Akhtar, who delivered an appreciable performance in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, has found another big fan, the filmmaker Sudhir Mishra, who wants to work with him in the future.
Sudhir reveal that Farhan is not a part of his film Dhruv but he is planning to cast him in another film.
“I am going to do Dhruv but it will not star Farhan. I am planning another film with Farhan. I have not narrated the story to him yet. But I want to cast him. I feel he is an outstanding actor,” he said.
“I haven’t seen a performance of such integrity like the one he did in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. I am so glad that he took the plunge in acting,” he added.
Sudhir Mishra has directed films like Inkaar, Chameli and Yeh Saali Zindagi. He will soon start work on Pehle Aap Janaab. The film was earlier titled Mehrunissa.
When asked Mishra why he changed the titled even before the commencement of shooting, he said; “The earlier title was sounding like a story of a courtesan and a period film, which it is not. It is a comedy in the best sense of the word and is about love and life. Hence, I decided to change the title.”
The film is featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor and Chitrangada Singh. Mishra said he is looking forward to cast both Big B and Rishi.
“I feel it is the right script and that is why they decided to be a part of it. It is about what happens when something that you have yearned for in childhood and what you missed comes back to your life. It is a comedy between Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan, who are the main protagonists of the film. It is a story about those two characters,” said the director of the film Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi.
He said the shoot of Pehle Aap Janaab has been rescheduled and he will decide the final date later this week. Film will be shot in Lucknow, reportedly.
