Arjan and Divyendu to fill in Big B and Rishi Kapoor's shoes
Arjan Bajwa and Divyendu Sharma will apparently reprise the younger versions of Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor in Sudhir Mishra’s film Pehle Aap Janab that stars Chitrangda Singh in a stellar role. The long-in-the-planning film that faced several hiccups is finally slated to roll next month in Lucknow.
Says a source, “ The makers were looking for two younger actors as the story traverses different decades. Arjan and Divyendu have been spotted visiting the filmmaker’s office. They have even started attending workshops as preparation for their roles.”
Adds the source, “As there has been a lot of speculations and issues with the project, those associated with the film have been told to be tightlipped. The script revolves around pals turned foes, essayed by Bachchan and Kapoor. It begins in the 1940s, and every decade gets highlighted the reason the younger actors have been taken to depict the flashback sequences.”
Bajwa was last seen in Son of Sardar. After his debut in Fashion, he went on to do some forgettable films like Lanka, Tell Me Oh Khhuda and Hide and Seek. While Divyendu featured in Pyaar Ka Punchnama and Chashme Baddoor. Mishra remained unavailable for comment.
