Sources say the actor has been roped in to play a younger Rishi Kapoor in Sudhir Mishra’s next. Apparently Amit’s chocolate boy-looks helped him bag the project that co-stars Amitabh bachchan and Kapoor.
An insider says, “His performance in Kai Po Che got him noticed. The film centres around two friends who don’t speak to each other for two decades. The makers wanted actors to play the younger versions of Bachchan and Kapoor.
They roped in Amit for the part of Chintuji. Both share a lot of similarities as far as their looks are concerned.”
