the cast demanded new faces
Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s co-production “Fukrey” has an ensemble cast of young actors who are one or two films old and Farhan feels the script demanded a ‘fresh cast’.
“Every story has its demand so we felt that if we would take a fresh cast for this film so that when you will watch the film there would be no pre-conceived notion, image or idea in your mind, that was crucial for us which is why we thought to have an interesting new cast,” said Farhan.
had to do jugaad for casting
Farhan Akhtar says casting is an integral part of the film’s process and he says it is “actually one of the most demanding processes, in terms of trying to get appointments, to get time”. He further adds, “In the whole film industry, all the producers and all the directors have to do ‘jugaad’ for casting. Nothing can happen without that,”
