Certain scenes are inspired by their real-life break up. The director is keen on signing the actress. Will she bite the bait?
Himesh Reshammiya's estranged friend, Prashant Chadha, is directing Rome -- The Real Dope On Romeo starring Deepika Padukone's ex-boyfriend, Nihar Pandya. The interesting bit about the flick is that certain scenes have been inspired from Nihar's real-life break-up.
Real to reel: Nihar Pandya
Says a source connected to the film, "The hero's first scene starts with a monologue in front of the mirror where he talks about worshipping his girlfriend for four years and then, being dumped unceremoniously in favour of a more successful man. He then starts his search for a famous lover, Romeo."
Prashant says, "The film is about the journey of a rich young man who gets dumped by his girlfriend. He then starts his journey from Rome through Italy in search of Romeo who is a successful lover, while he couldn't be. I will be casting a known actress from B-Town and a foreign actress."
Prashant admits that Rome has been inspired from Nihar's real life. "Nihar's first scene depicts his state after he is jilted. Though people have tagged Nihar as a Casanova, it's not true.
Rome will show the truth of what happened. My ideal cast for Nihar's character's ex-girlfriend in Rome would be Deepika herself, though I am yet to approach her. Nihar knows what the story and screenplay are and he's comfortable playing a large portion of his real life on screen."
Prashant is also directing an untitled film with Sachin Joshi and Candice Boucher.
