First actor for Dishkiyaoon signed up for Rs 5000!

Dishkiyaoon is an upcoming film starring Harman Baweja and Sunny Deol. Reportedly, the first actor for the film was hired for Rs. 5000. If you are thinking it is the flopmaster Harman, then sadly you are wrong. It is the Murder 2 actor Prashant Narayan.

The debutante writer-director Sanamjit Talwar says “That was back then in 2011 when I had first envisioned Dishkiyaoon as a 15 minute short film. I needed an actor for this part of Mota Tony, which was quite prominent even in the short film. Since Prashant is a friend, I could just tell him that he had to be in my film. However, I didn’t have any money on me then but really wanted to shoot the film. Poor guy, he agreed and just said ki ‘Yaar, kuch toh paisa de kyunki even I don’t have money’. I said that ‘Chal, mere paas 5000 bucks hai so you keep this. That was the first signing amount for my film.”

After Harman agreed to do the film; Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra came forward to produce the film and the rest, as they say, is history.
