What started as a prank, turned out to be a dream come true for one lucky spot boy on the sets of "Tamanchey", as he landed up with a role in the movie, thanks to actor Nikhil Dwivedi.
While packing up one day, the crew was in a relaxed mood and decided to play a prank on one of the spot boys. They asked the man to audition for the role of a gangster in the film.
The spot boy felt it was a golden opportunity to prove his skills, and took the prank seriously. He actually started acting and mouthed dialogues in Bhojpuri effectively, says a source from the sets.
The unit was in splits and started laughing at him, but Nikhil, who watched the spot boy's acting from a distance, appreciated the intensity in the spot boy's acting, and requested the director to give him a role in the film, since the film is based in the interiors of India, and would give authencity to the character.
Director Bharat Ratan agreed and gave the spot boy a suitable role. "Tamanchey" is said to be loosely based on the love story of Abu Salem and Monica Bedi.
