Who will play young Akki in Patiala House?
Director Nikhil Advani’s directorial venture Patiala House starring Akshay Kumar and Anushka Sharma is about to start it’s shooting from next month, but the filmmaker is in trouble with casting as he has not yet zeroed on who will play a 17-year-old Akshay in the film. And for the same the film team has decided to for a nationwide hunt starting from December 1 to December 15.
A source revealed, “The film’s team was tired of auditioning and watching show reels. None of the boys fulfilled the requirements. So, Akshay suggested that they conduct a nation-wide hunt. The participants essentially have to match Akshay’s height and body language.”
Advertisements for the contest will be announced in newspapers across the country. All the entries will be collected on December 1. Director Nikhil will select ten semifinalists, while Akshay will choose a winner out of them.
What will be Akshay’s decisive factor? The director explained, “Akshay is very keen on casting someone who comes from a real background. At 17, Akshay was a typical middle class boy; he wants some of his qualities to show in the boy who will play him in the film.”
Bhushan Kumar and Mukesh Talreja will produce the film. The film will be shot with tight schedule as it is slated to release on 2010 Diwali.
