Ever since Anurag Basu made Barfi!, he has been in the news. Not only is his film battling for a slot at the Oscars, the director has already signed Ranbir Kapoor again for another film. But surprise, surprise! For his next film, Anurag apparently is looking to cast comparatively fresher faces.
Sources say that the reason behind Anurag’s decision could be the fact that the current crop of Bollywood actors has a rather crammed professional timetable.
A friend of the filmmaker says, “Today, if you want to make a film with an established actor, you will have to wait for at least six to eight months to get their dates for the project. Anurag is almost ready with his next film and no wonder that he wants to cast newer talent. That way, he can finish his film faster.”
