Sudhir Mishra to cast Farhan in new film

PTI, PANAJI | 25 November 2013 20:33 IST

fter delivering a brilliant performance in 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', director-turned-actor Farhan Akhtar has found a fan in filmmaker Sudhir Mishra, who wants to work with him in the future.

Mishra said that contrary to reports Farhan is not a part of his film 'Dhruv' but he is planning to offer another film to the 'Dil Chahta Hai' director.

"I am going to do 'Dhruv' but it will not star Farhan. I am planning another film with Farhan. I have not narrated him yet. But I want to cast him. I feel he is an outstanding actor.

"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," Mishra told PTI in an interview on the sidelines of IFFI.

Mishra, who last directed 'Inkaar', will soon begin work on 'Pehle Aap Janaab', which was earlier titled 'Mehrunissa'.

When asked why he decided to change the title even before the commencement of shooting, the filmmaker 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 about love and life. Hence, I decided to change the title."

The film stars Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor and Mishra's favourite lady Chitrangda Singh. The 'Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi' director said he is looking forward to shoot with both Rishi and Big B.
