Abhishek not Aamir to play Kishore Kumar
Perfectionist Aamir Khan was in dilemma whether to say yes or say no when he was approached to play the life of legendry singer Kishore Kumar. When the maker of the film failed to get any fruitful answer from Aamir, they changed their choice from Aamir to the talented actor Abhishek Bachchan who has shown his acting charisma in films like Guru, Dhoom 2, Sarkar Raj.
After considering some of the biggies of Bollywood like Salman Khan, Govinda and Aamir Khan, the production house has finally zeroed upon the versatile actor, Abhishek Bachchan. Speaking to a news daily Ram Mirchandani, COO, UTV Rampage Motion Pictures said “As a production house we are always excited about all our projects but this film is based on a legend called Kishore, so it’s super special. As a subject, Kishore Kumar’s life is very colorful. His love life, his career, his music, his marriages and above all his eccentricities, he was a complete entertainer."
The director of the film Sujit Sarkar is quite happy with the choice as Abhi’s comic and intense timing is in creditable and will suit to the character of Kishore Kumar to the utmost.
