Aamir is too old for Sanjay’s film

Actor-turned filmmaker Sanjay Kapoor is busy selecting his casts for his upcoming flick ‘It’s My Life’. At first, he wanted to sign Aamir Khan to play the lead but calculating his age, Sanjay changed his mind. His film requires an actor younger in age and so Sanjay now opts for Harman Baweja.

"You should be looking at what is your story trying to tell. For 'It's My Life', the role required a young boy. Now obviously Aamir Khan wouldn't have fitted in there. Similarly for the role of a father, I needed someone whose mere presence bears a commanding authority. Of course there was no other choice but Nana Patekar," Sanjay said.

In spite of having two back to back flop, Sanjay is unperturbed and signed Harman Baweja as he fulfills his requisites. On choosing Harman, he says, “There are two reasons for that. First, you have to be confident about your guy. When I signed him on, 'Love Story 2050' had not yet been released but I still believed in him. Second, always remember that your product is more important than a star. A good product can work without a known name but a bad product with the biggest of superstars won't work."

“It's My Life" is a remake of Siddharth and Genelia D'Souza starrer super hit Telugu film ‘Bommarillu’. Genelia D'Souza will play the lead actress in the Hindi remake.
