New Delhi, Feb 13 (IANS) Ever thought of landing a film role by only e-mailing a photograph? Well, Bollywood filmmaker Vashu Bhagnani is asking for just that to zero in on five newcomers for his next project.
Bhagnani has announced a contest to find three boys and two girls (all Indian) from across the world for his next film that also stars his son Jackky.
'Jackky and I are going to start a new film and we need five newcomers - three boys and two girls for it as a script requirement. Also, since I am launching two newcomers with 'Kal Kissne Dekha', I am making it a platform to bring in more new people in the industry,' Bhagnani told IANS.
'We are inviting entries for all Indian faces across the world who are smart, handsome and have talent. The contest will run over a month and we'll select them after a collective decision of all concerned people in our production house,' he added.
On being asked about the kind of roles he had decided for the fresh faces, the filmmaker said: 'It's too early to talk about that right now. But the newcomers will have a straight access to us for sure.
'I'll be making around three films a year and I'll call the five candidates if they are required in future projects. And I'll groom them before launching them,' Bhagnani said.
Bhagnani, who is coming back to movie business with 'Kal Kissne Dekha' after a self-imposed sabbatical for four years, is in Delhi as a part of the movie's promotional tour being held at Amity University, Noida. He is launching his son Jackky and Vaishali Desai with the film.
The filmmaker was thrilled with the initial reaction of students so far for the contest.
'So far, we've had a fantastic response which is more than 500 entries in three days. I started the contest only three days ago by sending posters to Amity University (Noida) and got it announced only Wednesday morning on radio to give it a little buzz. And I am stunned at the response,' he said.
