One such Casting Director is Sonu Singh Solanki. Solanki is known to cast new comers in the shows that he handles. In a candid chat with India Forums, Solanki opened up on his journey in the field and stated that being a Casting Director was not his goal but he got a nack of it and decided to take it up.

He said, “Well, Casting Direction is not what I always wanted to. Initially, I wanted to make a career as a Director but things didn’t materialise well as I wasn’t able to get good opportunities and in the meantime, I met one of the casting directors and started to assist him. That’s how it all began”.

He further added, “As a Casting Director, I strive to give chances and opportunities to new comers. If I see the drive, passion and ability to work hard in a new comer, I do consider him even for lead roles. The lead hero and heroine in ‘Lovepantii’ are both talented new comers”.
