Sudhir Mishra will start shooting for his next project Mehrunissa by the end of this year in Lucknow. The moviemaker was looking for perfect faces to play young Big Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor
and now finally he has found the right faces for these avatars.
Two theatres actors will be playing young avatars of Big B and Rishi for this movie and would be spending a complete 40 days of shooting schedule in Lucknow to observe the shooting of Bachchanji and Rishiji.
Sudhir revealed that this is the only way that they can get these actors to replicate the stars for their young avatars as they will be playing young versions of Bachchan ji and Rishi ji. They will be observing the stars for every minute of shooting and off camera as well so that they can successfully copy their body postures, movements and overall performances.
He further added that both Big and Rishi are super stars and no one can completely replicate them but we would be trying our best to bring these two theatre actors as close to the performances of these stars as possible. Thus for this purpose the older versions are shot first and later we will shoot the young versions for the first half of the movie.
Sudhir also disclosed that there were 100 names on the short list for these characters and the actors are now chosen who will be following super-iconic stars.
